Coupons in UK Google Search Results

I was sent a couple of screenshots that indicate Google Places (former LBC) coupons are making their way into UK SERPs (click to enlarge):

I wasn’t able to duplicate this in US results simply by searching on categories and locations. If you include “coupon” in the query you do get lots of coupon results.

Has anyone else seen this?

Google blew it, in my view, some time ago by not more aggressively promoting local coupons or being a coupon aggregator. Given what’s happening with LBS providers such as Foursquare (basically a mobile loyalty platform) we’ll see if Google steps up with local coupons.

    Google promote themselves using coupons because their adwords service is too expensive. It would be better if they reduced the price. They should make more than sufficent money for themselves.

    Hi everyone,

    Just wondered if we know when the UK coupons are likely to go live? I would definately get on board even if it has taken Google a while to bring this to the UK. I’d like to hear opinions on this service and whether it holds any weight in SEO and website rankings.

    Kind regards,
    Dan
