Google Local Results With Stars To Bookmark Places In Google Maps

As reported at Search Engine Land, Google is testing (as I cannot see it myself) adding large stars to the local knowledge graph box in the web search results. So if you search for local relevant results, and if a single listing shows up at the top right of the page, it may contain a white star. If you click the star, it will turn gold and then save the location to your Google Maps saved bookmarked locations.

Here is a picture:


So clicking on it will place it in your Google Maps history.



Kind of a dumb thing to use the star like that if you ask me when you have the review stars right there below it. I think some people will get confused by that. They should have just used a hyperlink saying 'bookmark' I think.
