Google Adds "Is This Accurate" To Map Details on Web Search

When Google local business listings are showing on the web search results, Google is now asking users to confirm if the business information is accurate. Even if the business listing is verified by the business owner.

Here is an example:

When you click the link, it asks you to "confirm" or "cancel."

Then when you "confirm" the listing Google thanks you.

Thanks for the heads up. I am doing a talk on how to get listed with Local Search next week and I will definitely mention this.
