Google Maps to Fix One Web Box Result Bug

For at least a month now, there have been complaints in a Google Maps Help thread that Google is showing, in some cases, a single map result, when it should be showing seven map results.

For example, a search on orlando dodge shows a single map result:

Google Maps One Box Bug?

As you can see, it shows a place named Orlando Dodge, but not all the Dodge dealerships in Orlando, Florida. Adding on FL to the query does indeed show multiple listings, including Orlando Dodge.

A Googler from the maps team said yesterday that a fix will be out soon. He said:

Thanks everyone for continuing to post examples of this issue. Hoping to resolve this shortly. Will keep you all posted.

It seems google has had there emploees place a vast amount of the problems submitted into a fixed area, which takes it out of the ability to add further complaints to it. There is a world wide issue with the local search results with little to no real help from google. This is costing small business in a way that has not been seen for along time.With the funds that google has you would think it would be fixed quickly.Is it a cyber attack?Is it google trying to push local business to adwords? I would gladly pay to ensure my listing stays up and in the category it was in form the begining.
