Here is a screenshot of a local business listing I came across. It is on the the page 3rd from the bottom. Looks like it has an icon of a Caterpillar and the listing is in bold. New feature? Never ever seen this before.

Really interesting experiment. Whitespark looks good in this font. Are you going to leave it this way or too risky to get marked as spam?

I used to have a rocket in our name. It kept getting removed so I just stopped bothering adding it back in. I kind of expect the same to happen here.

Spammy but novel tactic to stand out and get more clicks in fairness. However, totally agree this is risky and likely not worth having a listing suspended / removed.
