How does Google Maps effect our view of our place in the world?
Since Mercator maps have been changing how people thought of themselves in relation to the world. What effect is Google Maps having on the mental maps we carry with us? Or to misquote REM, does Google Maps make it easier for us to "face North" in the "place where we work?" Do you now have a little Google Map in your head when you go places?
If you are a business owner you can potentially show your business listing for keywords searched with location specific words in it.
For example "cake shop san diego" will return a Google map along with other links in SERPs that can be help connect your customers or prospects to your business location.
Maps helps you find directions to a particular destination that can save your time and money both. I use it in my iPhone to reach a destination faster.
It can change the way you travel across any region in the world except Antarctica...:-)
