When typing "weed control atlanta ga" or pick your city (any city in the US), GBP always returns listings with the word "Weed" in the search results with no exceptions. Even the major lawn care companies that are most likely spending thousands on marketing and SEO do not show up on GBP for any weed control related terms. Feel free to pick any location in the USA to test my findings. I've been monitoring this bug since January of this year. We have a client that's asking us why he doesn't rank on the map for "weed control city st" and we have to tell him that it's because there's seemingly a bug with GBP. I've reported this to @Johnmu on Twitter and GBP on twitter on multiple occasions but always get their canned response like I'm an idiot and don't understand dIsTancE, prOxImiTy, and reLEVanCe. How would one go about getting someone at Google to recognize this obvious bug and get it corrected? I believe this is obviously an algorithmic issue with the map rankings.
