Google Shuts Down "Sh**hole" Redirect to Tottenham's Football Ground

By Gary Cutlack on at

Football fans have been having a bit of a laugh with Google's map tagging features, somehow getting the search giant to point browsers to Spurs' home ground when people search for the term "the shithole" online.

Although it's since been corrected by Google, it would appear the shithole hack is quite a common trick to play with its Maps tool. A search for "the shithole" currently brings up a restaurant in New York that has also, at some point, been slagged off by its patrons, or the enemies of its patrons, or fans of a rival Italian eatery engaging in some banter.
