Adding POIs to Apple Maps

When the first beta of iOS 6 was released, Apple Maps had only very few POIs, so I added two cafés on my street using the Apple Maps "Report a Problem" button. Until today, neither of the two cafés have been showing up in Apple Maps, although Apple added A LOT more POIs for my city and street.

So I was wondering, what would be the correct way to help add more POIs? Should I use the "Report a Problem" button in Apple Maps, or just I add them using Yelp, as Apple Maps is using Yelp info for POIs?

Has anybody found information regarding this or tried it out?

Are all POIs in apple maps "imported" from yelp only? Or does Apple has other sources?
There are places in Apple Maps that are not in Yelp and vice versa. So I suppose Apple has multiple sources.

I think adding new POIs should be a central feature of every maps application.

Appears to be multiple sources.

Good. Here in Portugal, Yelp is nearly invisible in terms of information and result, so it would be a great setback when facing Google Maps.
