Find your Google Maps edits

On your phone or tablet, you can find a list of edits and places you added on Google Maps. Only you can find your list. For each edit, you’ll find:

  • Whether your edit is approved, pending or not applied
  • What edit you made to a place, like hours or phone number
  • When you made the edit

If an edit was recently approved, it may not yet show up on the Map.

 

View a list of your edits

  1. Open the Google Maps app Maps .
  2. Tap Contribute Contribute and then View Your Profile.
  3. Scroll down and tap Edits.

Understand edit statuses

To make sure Maps is accurate and up to date, all your suggested edits are processed by our moderation system. The status of your edits will be updated during the moderation process: 

  • Pending: Google is confirming your edit.
  • Accepted: Your edit was added to Maps.
  • Not Accepted: Google couldn't verify your edit.

You may not receive Local Guide points for places you added and that were approved if someone already added the same place before you.

How to improve your edits 

Name

Use the official name of a place – the one used on the shop front or website. Don’t add any extra comments in the name field.

Address

Enter an official address. If Maps suggests an address that’s incomplete, add additional details in the address.

Marker

When you move a marker, make sure you zoom in far enough and switch to satellite view. This will help you see buildings and precisely drop the marker on the place’s location.

Category

Use specific categories when describing a place. For example, use 'Clothes shop' instead of 'shop'.

Hours

Enter the hours that a place is open. You can add different hours for different days of the week.

Phone number

Use the primary phone number. Check that the number you suggested is correct first. 

Website

Use the official website. Don't include links to social networking sites, review aggregators or other similar websites.
