    Cool OMG LOL! Is this a Garbage Google Local Listing or What???

    Ok so this is too funny. (In a sad kinda way...)

    I was researching something. Don't even remember how I landed on this one. Saw the KW stuffed name:

    "A Magic Moment Photography and Video - Wedding Photographer, Videography, Wedding Photography, Photographer, Photography, Wedding Video, Video Productions, Wedding Album, Bar Mitzvah"

    Yes that was ALL in the business name field! Can you spell V I O L A T I O N?

    So then I went to street view see location.

    So the location of the A map marker proves it!
    This is a GARBAGE listing! LOL!

    Really surprised the algo still lets listings like that go live. You'd think there would at least be a limit to how many characters are allowed in the name field. I doubt there is any legit business name that's as long as the one above.

    Here's a direct link if anyone wants to see it or has time to report it.

    Now that's funny (or like Linda said, sad). But it definitely made me laugh.

    Someone intervened - it's been sort of cleaned up, but the image is still the same. So funny now! Ya, I really want to hire a waste bin photographer for my wedding!
