How long it takes for corrections to be published

We review your edits, so your changes might take some time to be updated on the map.

What makes a good edit

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 a known address. If Maps suggests an address that’s incomplete, add additional details to the address.

Marker

When you move a marker, make sure that you zoom in far enough and switch to satellite view. This will help you to see buildings and move the marker to the building in which the place is.

Category

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

Hours

Enter the opening hours. You can add different hours for different days of the week.

Telephone 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.
