West Yarmouth isn't its own town, rather a defined village in Yartmouth. Because it has a boundary and is completely within Yarmouth and Google now knows that (my edit to place it within Yarmouth) will mean that if Google sees "West Yarmouth" it places the object within the West Yarmouth boundary in the Yarmouth Boundary which in in Barnstable County, etc. Google treats villages in towns as a separate town for search and display purposes but still knows it is in the town. Google likes to be accurate as it helps find things. That's the long answer, the short answer is no they're not a town but Google treats them as one for convenience. Basically Google will serve up a West Yarmouth address when you just search for such a place using Yarmouth.Andrew...in the client's words, "Bayside's address is "West Yarmouth", Yarmouthis a different town." Does this jive with the changes made in the edit?
