Apparently the “reviews by a Google user” was a glitch in the system. My guess it was caused while they were migrating or integrating their databases. Other glitches on Dec. 7th, 2009 included the same results showing up twice…
But they have seemed to fix that as well.
New to the scene as of Dec. 7th, 2009 are the live results…
Yes… just go to google and seach Tiger Woods. You can see it live right now.
But Google Local Map Results are still struggling with Glitches Galore!
So a few posts ago I noted google expanding its map results to cover service areas of companies that come to you… (i.e. pest control). But this new roll out still has a long way to go. Charlotte, for example is showing results for Rock Hill, SC. And there are even more problems with google maps when trying to sort their listings in Charlotte by customer reviews. Check out the glitch in google maps for pest control companies when you search Charlotte Pest Control and try filtering by 4 stars or better… Bulwark Exterminating a Charlotte Pest Control Company… 5 stars… not found. And it’s not just pest control, it’s local Charlotte resturants as well. 4 stars and up…. gives you a 3 star restaurant Bricktop’s Restaurant but not a 4 star restuarant Jaipur Indian Restaurant
Hmmm…. Hopefully this will all be fixed with the New Year’s update.

Thanks for everyone’s feedback!
