dmz17, if you search for pizza in palo alto, we also try to show the best web page that we found that mentions that address, e.g. the first link is to a Stanford unofficial guide to good places to eat. There's also a link that says "and more related pages" that you can click on and see other web sites that mention that Domino's. I believe that this feature will drive more traffic to sites with good geographical information, in the same way that Google is overall beneficial for webmasters by driving traffic to their site. But if someone objects, they can use robot.txt on their site to make sure that Google won't ever index a specific web page or site.

pele, sounds a little weird that a business would advertise in yellow pages but wouldn't want its address listed? What industry is this? The FAQ does talk about where to write if someone want to delete their listing though.
