Yup, it does changes pretty frequently mostly due to the addition of new listing.

Also, you might note that the listing change or are completely gone (nowhere till the end in Google Maps) while they appear in one box on Google.com with exactly the same query.

Odd in, odd out. Here, there...and still odd/off. Local gets updated with new info/algos almost on an hourly basis...though most of the time it is stable. There will be changes. Happens all the time. However if you see Mars listed as Venus and you know it is Mars there might be a problem. And... what can you do about that?

Google, after all...

I find this somewhat odd, but two of my local listings are showing old addresses that we moved out of over two months ago.

Anyone else seeing similar?

At times, I have faced difficulties in changing the pointer in map, otherwise all changes reflect within 5 mins and do not show any bug.

The map pointer change takes more than 3-4 days to reflect in some cases.
