  1. Google might want to, but it isn’t going to be easy. Do sites with no discernable address rank above or below sites with an address far away from you? Do they have to do a secondary search to find out that “Prince George, near the Patuxent River”, isn’t the same as “Prince George, near the Fraser River”? Should your search for “Prince George career” return anything about the military career of England’s Prince George?

  2. Chris: relevant points, and I won’t pretend I know anything about search technology, but it shouldn’t be *that* difficult to ask for a search with immediately discernable addresses that are within my default zone to come up.

    I should be able to set up a search profile, and ask it to display the most relevant information based on that. TiVo profiles me, why can’t google?

    As for sites that don’t display an address, the search companies can’t solve *every* problem. You want me to find your site? Work on your SEO.
