Google Places is actually Google Business that they renamed recently.

We can add our business listings in Google Places to be shown in Google search  and on Google maps. This not only puts your business on google but also enhances your credibility.

Adding you business previously was extremely easy and was accepted too automatically but now Google has implemented some required guidelines and made the system intelligent enough to accept only real listings.

Today, when adding a new business venture Healthy Treat to Google Places, I faced an unusual issue. It was not accepting the word “Kalu“.

I was consistently getting the error “The term ‘kalu’ is not allowed

I tried placing it Address line 1 and 2 but in vain. Just to give another check, I tried adding it in other fields but the same error.

Is there something wrong with the word “Kalu” or has it been made some keyword or has it been considered defamatory to anyone? I don’t know and googling it also did not help.

Anyone knows why Google is not accepting the term “Kalu“??
