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.

Sorry. Ignore that. I thought it was showing the Shopper's logo but that's just the generic drug store marker. I get the same one for Rexall.

Thx @JoyHawkins & @MattPelkey, that does make sense.
There is no ad in the way Joy's screen shows, but there is the way Matt shows. Didn't see it yesterday but that could be b/c it was the end of the day & had kids running in & out of the office...
