    Hijacking Google’s Local Knowledge Graph

    Great find, and interesting post by Phil:


    Hijacking Google’s Local Knowledge Graph

    I was just going about my business, monkeying around in the local results. Then something caught my eye:

    Thanks for sharing Colan!

    Wow, good find Phil. Pretty tacky of that business though.

    But you are right. It's worth thinking of a tactful design strategy that would earn more clicks.

    It's odd that the brand search pulled a carousel. But I reproduced the result and I guess maybe it's normal when you click one of those more results links to get a carousel. I guess I just never click there.

    @Colan
    Thanks!

    @Linda
    Yeah, I don't recall the carousel being triggered in this way for brand-name searches. Especially in an industry where you don't see the carousel for broader queries.
