Phil Rozek has a great post on The 1st Annual Google Places Freakshow:

“Whatever your ranking, I suggest you pay attention to how your Google listing comes across at a gut level.  Ask friends, family, or customers who haven’t seen it to take a look and give you their first impressions.  You’ll ensure that YOUR business won’t ever make it into a future Google Places Freak Show.”

Kind of reminds me of the curious case of Dr. Robert G. Aycock.

    And it reminds me of how many Dr Dick’s I know about, who have problems getting their Dr Dick practice on D places 🙂

    When I first saw their name I think it was going to be for some adult video store

    In the near by cities we have a lot of restaurants who have Thai word “Phucket” in the name of their restaurant and Places listings.

    Google Short Link to one of the Places Profile:

    Pretty funny if you sound it out.

    Al, it’s pronounced “Poo-kett”. It’s a beautiful island.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention, but you have now taken away my little bit of joy when I drive past those signs, hahaha.

    I’ve heard many good things about the islands of Thailand, hopefully I can get myself out there soon.

    We have a chineese yum cha resturanut near us called Fuk Yuen. It does great yum cha.
