    Google+ Local Display Update - New About Page Layout

    Some may already be seeing the new update where Google has changed the layout to 3 columns which seems to focus on reviews. A "widget", of sorts, that includes 3 buttons (Review, Directions and Photos) now shows up in the top left. This makes it easier for the user to find where to leave a review. The issue? This layout only seems to show when you are NOT logged into a Google account. As always, here are some screenshots of the findings.

    Here is the standard layout

    Here is the new or "not logged in" layout.

    I have been playing around with the display settings for the Google+ Local page but they have not seemed to have any affect. I know all you fabulous users and contributors may be seeing the same thing and might have more insight.

    Thanks

    Thanks for breaking the story here Ryan!

    Hey Hawkeye, I've been curious about this. Where are you based?
    What browser? You only see it when logged out?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    Just Tweeted and G+ed this to see if anyone else can see it yet.

    I REALLY like the horizontal review display a lot!

    I am not seeing this either, but have to agree with Linda. I do like the layout better and helping consumers find the review button a little easier.

    I'm located in Salt Lake City, UT. I've tested with Chrome, Firefox and, as painful as it was, IE. All show the same results depending on whether you are logged into Google or not.

    re: Google+ Local Display Update - New About Page Layout

    This is a super catch! Thank you so much for sharing it. Like others, I'm not seeing it yet, including on your example page of the craft store. Looks like Google is testing something very cool here. Agree, like the layout!

    It looks like the "two columns" change has just rolled out more broadly:

    Wasn't seeing it a week ago. Am now.
