As that video reveals, bricks-and-mortar bookstores received an online boost from Google yesterday, as the search company unveiled a new program called Favorite Places on Google.
With the program, 100,000 popular business around the country will receive "Favorite Place" status--receiving a special QR barcode decal. They can post the sticker outside the business and customers can scan the barcode with a smartphone to get more information from Google about the store. The Google Goggles function is building a growing library of visual searching tools as well.
