The 10 coolest Google Business Views

Earlier this year, I was surprised to find this post on Indoor Google Maps was quite popular.

Maybe it was because lots of people weren’t aware of Indoor Google Maps. Maybe it was because we’re all quite nosy, fans of MTV Cribs and the old British favourite, Changing Rooms.

Well, I thought I’d collect some of the coolest examples of Google Business Photos, the indoor equivalent of Google Street View.

These are the weirdest, most wonderful and beautiful 360 degree interactive tours. They appear in Google searches, Google Maps, and Google+ Local.

Anyone can use Google Business Photos (and be successful with them) apart from legal establishments and museums (this imagery is supported through Google Art Project). Admittedly a few of my examples aren’t businesses.

Econsultancy London even got involved (though we’ve recently upped sticks).

So heck, why travel, why leave the house when you can experience all this from your desktop? Enjoy!


Google to become the Clear Channel of online billboards?

Google's bread and butter is traditional online advertising but that doesn't mean that the search giant isn't thinking of new and sometimes unconventional online ad models.

One possibility the search giant may be considering: allowing advertisers to display their ads in Google Street View. As reported by ReadWriteWeb, Google has been granted a new patent by the US Patent and Trademark Office that could open the company's popular (and sometimes controversial) Street View functionality to advertisers.
