Snagging Google Maps Reviews From Your Competitors

A Google Maps Help thread has an interesting report of one business having the reviews of another. If you look at the Thomas French, DC, Chiropractor reviews, they look great, but when you look at Dr Keith Overland, it seems like he has reviews for Dr. French.

Here are the reviews on Dr. Keith Overland's page, which all reference Dr. French:

Google Maps Reviews Mix Up?

Two things could of happened here:

(1) It could be a technical glitch with Google Maps where reviews moved from one business listing to another.

(2) The people who left reviews accidentally put it on the wrong business listing?

Both businesses are in Norwalk, Connecticut - so who knows.

Actually, if you look closely, Dr. French and Dr. Overland are in the same building, so that may be the reason for the confusion.

I've seen this before were Google got confused by the address and my client ended up with negative reviews about another near by rival business with a similair name
