    New Carousel showing for non local terms

    Not sure if someone has brought this up before, but I thought the new Google Carousel was going to be specific to local search, but I'm seeing the carousel for the keyword "Blue Ridge Mountain". Interesting that the carousel seems to be showing for many tourism related keyword phrases and this could fall into that genre as well.

    Re: New Carousel showing for non local terms

    Thanks for sharing Kristen! Great screenshot.

    There are 2 different types of carousel results. The knowledge graph carousel started showing up for tourist attraction type keywords back in August. Either for a specific attraction/destination or for searches like "Things to do in San Diego".

    Mike Blumenthal did a great article about how to tell the difference between the 2.
