Thank you SQLPerformance. I can see spammers putting city name and keywords into business title and categories. is it legit ??

take a look at these 3 business listings :


http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place?cid=1043115846279591208   -- categories are keywords stuffed + city name - business name is keyword stuffed too however it does match with the name in the website .

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place?cid=1043115846279591208 - this one categories are keyword stuffed and business name wont match with actual business name on the website .

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place?cid=9623887229771916016 - this one the business title descriptions are keyword stuffed


is there any penalty for that . why the heck Google rank keyword stuffed listings ??
