Marc Zwygart posted a screen shot on Google+ of a Google Map embedded in Google Search that has a bunch of markers/icons but one of them is the letter P. I asked a bunch of local SEO experts what the letter P symbolizes and so far, I do not have an answer.

Here is a picture of the search result, where I highlight the P in the map:

Marc believes Google is testing new icon pins for business categories.

Google has used different types of icons in their maps but it seems no one knows what the P is for. They've used H for hospitals, they've tried promotion/sponsored icons, they've used images and different colors. But P?

Anyone know?
