Anyone who has done a Google search for a business or service in Newark (Notts) will be familiar with this particular frustration. All the relevant search results are often peppered with results from Newark, New Jersey (NJ), making it all too easy to accidentally order a pizza from 3,500 miles away.
I suppose this must be equally irritating for people living in the Garden State, but I know it grates with a lot of business owners in Newark (Notts).
