Sorry if I am reinventing the wheel again, but this was news to me. While in a google help forum I, I found that in the places listing the description field must not contain any part of your business name, address, or category. This will penalize your ranking. Apparently, this "new" enforcement starts with new or newly edited listings. Older listings have not been enforced yet, but a minor change may result in a major ranking tumble.
