Next I looked at restaurants in Delhi and there were some powerful competitors on here incuding AnnaMaya. AnnaMaya uses the Questions & Answers section well which is particularly useful for a restraunt listing. I also reviewed Indian Accent, they had some good use of Critic reviews in the Google Business lsiting.
The next industry I turned to on the map was for lawn care services in Belfast. One of the competitors there was Richie Trees Gardening. They were particularly good at showing some of the products they offered. Greenthumb Northern Ireland were able to show a 360 degree video of the premises which will always be useful for visitors wanting to know what the facilities are like and where on the road it is based.
