Dealmap, a startup that shows a grid of nearby daily deals, was just acquired by Google.
The acquisition is a smart way for Google to enhance web and mobile location search results..
Dealmap launched last year and has grown to 2 million+ users and 85 million monthly visitors to its partner network.
“We’re passionate about helping people save money while having great local experiences, and in Google we’ve found the perfect partner that shares this passion, as well as our vision and strategy,” the founders write on Dealmap’s blog. “We believe that joining Google will help us innovate in new and unexplored areas of commerce.”
