Should You Use Google Gemini For a Local Search? Lets ask Gemini!

Spoiler Alert: a traditional Google Search is much more helpful and Gemini just shows the top two Google Search results. So great, now small businesses can compete for the top two spots.

We asked Gemini "What is the Best Medspa in Portland Oregon?" to see just how helpful Google's tool really is when it comes to searches outside of your typical search for information.

Spoiler Alert: a traditional Google Search is much more helpful overall, as Gemini simply showed us the top two Google Search results.  As if competition wasn't tough enough already for small businesses, now they get to compete for the top two spots.

Below is the conversation we had with Gemini.

Our favorite quote from the conversation : “Inaccurate Representation: My focus on the top two ranked businesses creates an unfair situation for other well-regarded medspa locations”
