Que? Is this a map or the Yellow Pages?
You what? Whatever this link goes to it's not even in Fleet, it's in Fleet Road, London. Gimme Fleet!

Whoa, fleet management? Nooo, Fleet - the location. It's Google Maps. I want geographical locations! Fleet, the location, is not on the first or second page of Google results. Time to go to a competitors map site to get what I need...
I think you get the point. I certainly don't get what Google have done!
Now, admittedly if I type 'Fleet, Hampshire' it works. But why do I have to be so specific now when I never used to? I'd understand the results if I typed them into Google search. But it's Google maps. Ok, rant over. I'm sure someone can explain this. :) I hope.
There are business out there who have submitted in Google Maps with Fleet either in company name, street address or in other form. None must have added Fleet city independently.

@AnkitMaheshwari: Fleet the location has always existed in Google Maps. They've got the majority of UK locations in there and have done for a while now. What's changed is that if I type Fleet I no longer get the location at all, I get business related results for companies with some link to either industries with the word 'Fleet' or who are located in 'Fleet Road'. But if I wanted 'Fleet Management' or 'Fleet Road' I'd type that. If I type 'Fleet' alone then Fleet the location should be what comes up first. I think that what is appearing now is illogical and broken.
Try adding a postcode (or whatever they are called in the UK) or county to your search.
