Google Joining Amazon in The Home Repair Act

The Tuesday blog update was about Amazon getting into the home repair
business (or at least, the business of locating home repair services). It
looks like Google wants in on the act, too. Rumors are circulating that
the search giant will be augmenting its comparative mortgage and insurance
tools with the ability to search for local services. It’s not yet clear
how this would be different from the current, Google local results, but one
thing is certain. If both Google and Amazon are entering a market,
there’s bound to be disruption. Keep your eyes open as you search for
your local plumber, and see how Google is changing things.
