Google Places Bug Limits Search Results To 10

Google PaginationGoogle Places has an unusual bug, where they are only showing up to ten results for a local search query without the option to go to page 2 for an additional 10 results.

For example, search for [plumbers] and then click on the more results near... option. If you scroll to the bottom of those results you will be missing the famous Google pagination.

Here is a screen shot, feel free to click on it to see a full size:

Google Maps representative, Vanessa, said "Thanks, guys -- I've alerted the team and we're taking a look." The issue has yet to be resolved but it has been less than 24 hours as of right now.

I reported it to Vanessa yesterday right after I blogged it. Assuming it's a pagination bug and not by design, but who knows for sure. Waiting to hear more.

If you notice that the result count only says "10 results (.15 seconds)".  There is a work around to this if you go and change your search settings to display more than 10 results per page you will get results equal to that number.
