    Practitioner Listings associated with Business listing

    Regarding Google local business listings, I know malls and large buildings have "At+name of listing" then links to most business listings at that place. for example

    I'm starting to see more instances of this for business listings with practitioner listings linked to them. example

    I understand how to link a business feature to a building feature in MapMaker... but I'm curious to see if anyone has experience with manually associating a practitioner listing to a business listing? Or does anyone know how/why sometimes listings are automatically associated this way?

    Another example, which is confusing me is attached below. The link below "At+business name" is actually another location(a closed location).

    Alex, you just kinda opened up a new world to me. Hate to admit but I've never seen or heard of this below. Is "At+name of listing" new? When did you 1st start seeing it?

    Here are links to the other 2 listings for the 2nd and 3rd screenshot for anyone like me who's curious.

    Re: Practitioner Listings associated with Business listing

    Thanks for responding Linda,

    The "At+business name" started to appear, if I remember correctly(which i'm probably not), sometime early summer 2012. Today, is actually the first I've seen practitioners in that section, but honestly, I haven't really checked in a while.

    here's another example of doctors for a hospital

    Re: Practitioner Listings associated with Business listing

    This is the same underlying UI for More at this Address which was on Maps that previously was only used for features like Malls, Shopping Centers, etc. This is great and is what I've been asking for so people don't see the need to label their professional features with a business name. Ill have to check this out when on a computer. Its new to me! They're likely doing it behind the scenes rather than directly through the public UI of MapMaker.
