The little tiny dots interspersed with the teardrop markers usually indicate listings to be found on subsequent pages of results after the current page.

Larger dots usually indicate a business where the street address is unknown or unmappable. For instance, if someone has set up their listing and suppressed the street address, the dot might be placed in the centroid of their city or in the ZIP code area centroid.

The dots bear no relation to claimed/unclaimed business listings.

Your initial two posts make sense. Trying to understand all the local promotion options is dizzying. In a search on Maps, the teardrop is claimed and the dot is unclaimed, correct?
