In a (somewhat) surprising move, Google has removed all 3rd party reviews from appearing in Google Maps and Google Places search results.

There’s been an ongoing battle between TripAdvisor and Google for some months. The popular travel review site has asked Google time and again to remove their travellers’ reviews from the results Google displays.

We can only assume that the sudden decision from the Googleplex last night (21 July 2011) is related to the recent launch of Google+.
