I Live Near a Sex Club According To Google Maps

A resident in Amsterdam is upset that when he tells people to use Google Maps to find his home, up comes a Sex Club labeled on the map near his home.

You can see the map label over here. You will notice that the Asmara Sex Club Erotische Massage comes up right near his place. Here is a picture:

The resident said:

When people use Google maps to find my apartment in a residential neighborhood my neighbor is advertising a sex club.

I want the sex club listing removed. This is a residential neighborhood and if some house wife wants to earn a few extra bucks that's fine with me. JUST NOT ON MY MAP!

This dumb American thought that this stuff was allowed anywhere in Amsterdam, so maybe that is why Google Maps isn't shy about showing this on the map?

rustybrick, as a follow-up, you'll have to post the referrer analytics for this page showing all the traffic it gets from searches for, e.g., [sex club]. (Wait, how can I do an H1 tag in these comments? [;-)] )

Thats hilarious. I thought I was having a tough time just getting all 30 of my clients business listings reduced to one but this takes it to a whole nother level.
