If Search Engine Land is to be believed, Google is all set to overhaul its map.
The search engine giant is looking to introduce a new native pack and map design that appeared in the search. The brand new design will show the exact results to the local search, generally known as a “native pack” for the desktop search outcome.
A spokesperson at Google backed this move by saying–
“We’re consistently exploring methods to attach folks with the useful info that they’re looking for. We’re at the moment rolling out an replacement to the Search interface on a desktop so when folks seek locations or companies close by, like ‘parks close to me’ or ‘eating places close to me,’ they’ll simply see native outcomes on the left and a map on the fitting. We anticipate this to be broadly accessible over the approaching weeks.”
Here is a snapshot of a new map and local interface by Google.
And here’s how the outdated design looks like…

Even Barry has noticed it!
So it is safe to say that Google has been involved in the testing of this new design for months. Even the spike was noticed by many marketers.
