A GOOGLE Maps user has been accused of accidentally setting up a business when trying to google a simple question.
Some people think a confused user was googling ‘What Is In Energy Drinks’ when they accidentally registered the question as a UK business listing.
‘What is In Energy Drinks’ appeared on Google Maps and even received rave reviews.
In reality it just appears to be someone's house.
You have to jump through several hoops to register an address as a business on Google.
This would involve going through authentication protocols.
The confusing case has other Google Maps users speculating about it on social media.
Twitter user @WaldorfSixpence spotted the business and tweeted: "I am reasonably sure that whoever lives at this residential address was attempting to use google but accidentally set up a business."
The tweet went viral and has been liked over 100,000 times.
One bemused person replied: "Ah. I’ve wondered how this particular place near me got it’s name."
They then tweeted a picture of a Google Maps business called "How Old Do You Have to Be to Work at KFC".
A LinkedIn account that's also called ‘What is In Energy Drinks’ has been linked to the address, suggesting it's a real business after all.
It lists the same business name and address as the one on Google Maps and claims to be a business that educated about the effects of energy drinks.
However, searching for the Beechwood Close address know brings up a destination called "What is in my dad".
So, it seems pranksters could be behind this strange Google Maps find after all.
