Google + Reviews Overlay

Google+ Local Reviews Now Pop up as Overlay, rather Than redirecting you to the actual Google + page.

If you search Google for a particular type of business or service, a set of local business listings along with a map showing their location will show up. These local listings are generated using the Google+ profile associated with the business and will show the number of reviews users have left for the business as well as the average rating if it has enough reviews. Typically when you click on these reviews to see what people are saying about the business, it redirects you to the Google+ page and away from your search results.

With Google’s latest update, if you click on the reviews on one of those listings, instead of taking you to the Google Business Local page, Google will pop open a dynamic overlay window on top of the web search results and show you those reviews for those listings.
