Baker Bros Flooring Deli Mapspam

Check out the above local result for “flooring phoenix, az”.  Why is showing up as the URL for Baker Bros Area Rugs & Flooring?  This is likely just a simple case of an algorithmic mismatch, but given how easy it is to edit the business listings in Google Maps, it also could be a case of an aggressive marketer with a similar brand trying to get traffic any way they can.

The moral of the story – go claim your business in Google Local Business Center and make sure the data is correct.
