When I’m in an unfamiliar town and looking for a gas station or a place to get a bite to eat, I open Google Maps and search for businesses nearby. I even use the service to plan out things to do while on vacation. I use Google Maps because it has way more retailer information than Apple’s stock Maps app does.
It turns out that Apple is trying to do something about that, in the U.S. at least. The company recently launched a new website to help small businesses literally get their name on the map.
