No. The future is most probably Google. I can't think anyone can challenge this gigantic at the moment. Facebook is the only decent competitor but it hasn't made a move into classic Search just yet, even though I expected to move that way in 2017.
Either way any small search based company, local companies, any new and creative startup it will all die before reaching anywhere close to challenging Google. And even some of them will develop so really incredible new technology, all will be bought and absorbed into Facebook or Google.

True. In some way shame that local people doesn't support local search engines or link directories so much. But Google is overpowering everyone and people is so used to searching Google that it's hopeless to start some serious local search business, because it would involve huge marketing investments and still may be questionable...

Google it..has become a verb. It seems like people rely on Google for almost everything these days, so it is hard to see the day when local search engines will make a comeback. I just think that they will never be as effective or as utilized as Lord Google, knower and seer of all!

I don't see those local search engines coming back not when the Almighty Google is still full of life and kicking. People depend so much on Google search engine even now some people don't even know about other search engines.

You never know. We just don't know what the future will bring especially if an extremely special and unique local search engine is introduced. But like the others have said, there is very little chance of a local search engine or even a local listings site doing well. Google is just too large a company to compete with especially since how easy they have made searching for local businesses.

I do think that future is going to be there for the local search engines. You can see that some of the search engines are being purchased by the Google and others. You can see that bing search is there for the local content too. You can see that local content is in demand. And many search engines are first going to show the local search results. And that is something needs to be considered.
In future I am guessing the search is going super global. And they will find out the context of the local and the international. So this way they can guess more on which is the content being searched by google. And how that is impacting the person's way of managing the search there.

There was always Myspace before there was Facebook
But with Google having such a hold on the market share, I don't think there will be anything that can give it a run for it's money anytime soon. If a billionaire decided to get into the search engine niche, then they might have a fighting chance at the top market share. Even then it would take 100 years for them to gain any ground on the giant that is Google. Hell, they probably wouldn't be able to overthrow Bing or Yahoo within 50 years if they invested all of their money
