    I wasn't sure where to ask this question, however I'm looking to start a local directory site for a specific niche. My question is say you search a business, google returns the results, but on the right hand side there is a listing of the business including pictures of the inside, outside, peak hours of operation, reviews and more. Inspecting the div through chrome 'inspect element,' you find the div has an id of #rhs. I did some researching on this, but I'm looking for a more precise answer -- is there some sort of plugin for WordPress or javascript, etc. that can take that div on the right of a local business Google search and include it in a single listing on my own niche directory site? What would be the best way of going about this?

    Thank you in advance, long time lurker, first time poster.

    Happy New Year

    What you see on the ride side is the "Google my business" profile. It's free but you need a physical address to get one. Google will send a verification code to that address or call the main business line and give you the code.

    It's the verified Google My Business listings. Having one of these is not necessary for a directory site, however it definitely will help.

    If you want to include the picture/content from these addresses on your websites local business directory, there's no way you can this with CSS id's or div's as they don't apply to your website. I'm not a master in any programming languages, but surely it can be done, maybe the guys in the web design/php section can help you out.
