Google acquires Zagat


It was announced today that Google has eaten up the world’s leader in Restaurant reviews and consumer reports, ZAGAT.  The official announcement was made by Marissa Meyer, VP Local, Maps and Location Services via The Official Google Blog, as well as on Zagat’s website.

This is huge for Google, and I can only imagine the power in resources Zagat’s 32 years of experience is going to add to the +1 project, Google’s AdSense, and Offers among other Google products.  I can’t wait to see what’s coming in the next few months!

Want to know more?  Let me Google that for you!
