In order to make the search as easy as possible Google has announced a worldwide rollout of local search results on a map, which will come along even when you don't type in a location name. When you search in Google for generic terms like "restaurents" or "doctors" they will guess the location where you are based on the IP address and show the results near to you. Click the image below
They are also providing the "Change Location" option which will help the users to specify their likely location.
You can also search for specific stores or street addresses near you. For example like [cornelia st cafe] in New York.
Or [111 8th ave] in New York.
With the roll out of these new cool feature Google makes the search a bit easier for its users.
Note: The results are displayed w.r.t to the IP and Location. Here the results images are accordint to the US location.
