Google My Business Places Description Filter

Google My Business Places Description Filter | Local SEO + Local Search Updates | Scoop.it

G+ L description could be a problem. In that short description the business name is repeated 4 times! That's excessive. Google already knows the name so should not keep repeating.

The word moving is repeated 9 times. That's a 6.5% keyword density which I believe can trip a filter. I know for sure that repeating city more than twice can and I believe excessive KW rep can too and is seen by the algo as spammy. 

The description is not a ranking factor so stuffing keywords there does not help and can potentially hurt.
