Maps has become a powerful tool for local marketing yet Google’s policy of “launch early and iterate” has created a tool that has been open to an ongoing number of abuses. Recently Google announced that they had closed a major security hole in the Local Business Center that was widely breached by black hat marketers in the Locksmith industry. The recent news that claimed records are still being hijacked has put the immature nature of the Maps product in strong relief.
