How are Google Maps shops populated?

I was looking at Google Maps on my phone earlier and wondered how the shops get populated? Because not all shops are listed when you zoom in.

Google Maps is populated from business section of Google+. Anyone is able to add new businesses go Google Maps, but only actual owner is able to modify information using Google+. I don't know how verification process works for owners, but I was able to add a number of businesses to Google Maps that weren't there.
When you are browsing Google Maps not everything will show up - there is simply no space to fit everything. You have to search for particular place.
