Local business listings that want to enhance their information with YouTube videos can now embed them

google-latlong.blogspot.com/20 ...

But on her post in the Google blog she gives this link
www.google.com/local/add/
Which actually goes to this page

www.google.com/local/add/%20ht ...

Be VERY careful when using any web design or blogging software.

If there is a space after the last character in the url – it will automatically add the '%20'

So many designers have made that mistake and not found it because of not checking the links. Even if the anchor text looks fine -it can be deceiving
