Google has announced that it has acquired Zagat, the restaurant rating company. It intends to integrate Zagat ratings into a number of existing Google services.
Google did not reveal how much it paid for Zagat in its announcement. Zagat currently has guides in over 100 cities across the world, and covers 13 different categories with its ratings books. The company compiles ratings and surveys from real restaurant visitors to provide guides and scores for each restaurant.
Google says that it will integrate these ratings into its current local services, including Google Maps, Places, and Search. Zagat currently offers mobile apps for the iOS, Android, BlackBerry, webOS, and Windows Phone platforms that cost $9.99 each. [Google]
