Probably why this is an effective spamming tacticHi all,
Just a quick follow up. I changed the category back, and they went from being 40th on maps to #4.
I have to admit to being a bit surprised that this impacted it as much as it did (to think of all the on-site information on the page that says "this is a plumber" and yet, google wouldn't rank it for plumbing because of the new category).
