Stacking the Deck in Google Maps?

Could it be Public Storage has a monopoly on the self storage market in Oklahoma City or do they just appear to have one because of their dominance in Google’s search results?

Not sure whether these results are Public Storage’s handiwork or Google’s lack therof.

In either case, I am pretty sure Google prefers to deliver more varied business results for generic search terms like Oklahoma City Storage.

A quick check for “storage” in other cities doesn’t show the same degree of repetition of a single listing’s data.

Are these results spam or a Google anomaly?
