Local search engines use stored structured data to answer user queries relating to businesses and other places of interest in specific locations. When such structured data is unavailable, a local search engine cannot provide useful responses to user queries. This disclosure describes techniques to provide responses to local-intent queries based on snippets from web results. Responses are provided that include attributes such as phone number, address, etc. of local businesses, and businesses within specified categories (e.g., restaurants, repair shops, etc.).
