I saw this thread on the GMB forum and was curious if others are seeing business logos showing up in Google Maps?



I don't recall seeing this myself and can't replicate the results. Is this a test, or have I just missed it?

IMO if it is a test I hope it isn't rolled out fully. These icons are far too small to be helpful.

Unfortunately, I don't have the search query. I took the screenshot from this thread.

Although, I tried a variety of queries including branded and non-branded to try to replicate the results and I haven't had any success.

I think @JoyHawkins is right. I've seen several of them and they all have ads running. I've also tried on both desktop and mobile and have only seen them show up on mobile as @Margaret Ornsby pointed out.

Here's a WalMart:
