It's the local option you have on AdWords. I'm in the San Francisco Area, so I have ads that show up San Francisco-San Jose-Oakland at the bottom, since the advertiser has elected to advertise only in those locations. It's been like that in the US for at least several months.

You might try a very broad, generic search and see if any of the AdWords have a location underneath.

Surprising that there isn't a link to Google Maps for each place name. Although I suppose most of the time you would know where you were and your surroundings.

Yup, these are just geo-targeted ads.

Not new. They have been doing this since quite some time... Created a small buzz every time they started this program which looks to be in beta. Its excellent for your CTRs if your site is about something that caters to the local public.

best use for this module is to implement it on google mobile search.
Users should just say pizza and google will give you all nearest pizzerias to your locations.

We've seen it here in Richmond, VA as well. Unfortunately, sometimes the locale listed below the ads is Raleigh, NC!?!

My work computer shows Raleigh, my home computer shows Richmond below adwords ads. I don't know of any servers/routers/networks that I am on in Raleigh. Proof that the local Adwords system isn't 100% perfect yet and actually more detrimental than helpful for those networks/locations that aren't mapped correctly yet.
