Adding a new residential address to Google Maps 1 Recommended Answer 30 Replies 613 Upvotes

Hello.  A couple months ago I visited this forum and in looking through many threads found a way to request a residential address get added.  I went through that process, and got an email verification that it was received and was "In Review."  Well, we've moved in now a couple months later, and nothing has happened.  It's delaying almost every single delivery I get, sometimes never receiving the delivery at all.  Needless to say, I would really like to get this fixed on Google maps.

So, that said, I've seen others here give the information on this forum and have someone update the information very quickly, so while I don't love the idea of posting my address on a forum like this, I'm desperate, so let me know if that's the best way to do this.  This address is new (we just built the house), and is on a very sparse street (we are only one of two homes built).  Add to that the fact that there is an extremely similar street name one street over from us (102nd St as apposed to 102nd Way) that causes a great deal of confusion because Google maps automatically switches to 102nd Street when someone looks for our address on 102nd Way (which is our actual street).

So, bottom line, hopefully someone here can help me get this added properly.  I can provide my address and GPS coordinates if necessary.  Thank you.

Hi Bill Will,
 
What follows is a relatively new form to add/correct a residential address.  If you have tried it and it didn't work, post back.  If you haven't give it a try and let me know the result OK?
 
In the meantime, you can edit your original post now and remove all the personal info  (I got it, in case we need it to follow up.)
 
Here are instructions for adding your address to the Map. 
 
Scroll down towards the bottom for instructions for mobile devices.
 
 
 *  *  *  INSTRUCTIONS FOR DESKTOP (Android and iOS) *  *  *
 
To add an address to the Map, please enter your address into the search bar of the Map. If your address doesn't show fully, remove any house numbers or apartment numbers and the marker should locate you in the middle of the road.
 
Click on "Send feedback" in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, or click on the menu (3 horizontal lines top left of screen) and scroll down to "Send feedback".
 
Click on "Wrong Address" and complete the form (if you have an apartment number, please add it to line 2 of the form, and if your address has 3 lines, you will be given an option to add a third line). 
 
IMPORTANT: Do not abbreviate anything but spell everything out (Street, Road, Boulevard, North, Southeast etc). Google's algorithms will automatically abbreviate map data depending on where it is displayed, but it's essential that the full address be entered without any abbreviations.
 
Only make an entry on "Street address line 2" if you are entering an apartment or suite number.  In all cases uses the format of #3 (for an example of apartment number 3). Do not enter any text such as "Apt" or "Suite" or "Floor" -- as such an address (with text in Line 2) will not parse correctly in Google Search.
 
Should you be in a country using 3 lines for an address, after entering information in "Street address line 2" an option box will appear ("Add Line")  that you may click on for a third address line.
 
Next move the Map to the exact location of your address. You can change to Satellite view and change the zoom if needed. You need to make sure that the pin is directly over your house. 
 
Click on "Done" when you're happy that the marker is in the correct location.
 
Finally, click "Send" to submit this to Google Maps.
 
You will receive an email after submitting the edit request. It will say "Thank you for adding an address to Google Maps! The address is being reviewed. We'll let you know once the changes are published." 
Please KEEP this email as you might need it later if the edit is not approved after one month, or if it is incorrectly denied.
 
To check the status of your edit go to Your Contributions, then click on Edits.  You can then scroll down and see the current status of your edits.  If your report is still "Pending" after one month, or "Not Applied" please post again with a screenshot of the email, mentioned above, and we will advise the next step to take.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions or need help with any of this.
 
 
*  *  *  INSTRUCTIONS FOR MOBILE (Android and iOS) *  *  *
 
 
To add an address to Google Maps using your mobile, please enter the address in the search bar.
 
Swipe up the address information that appears at the bottom of your screen - you might have to move the screen up a few times, until you see "Report a problem".
 
Click on "Report a problem" and fill out the details on the screen and move the marker on the Map to the correct location, if necessary.

Hi Bill,
 
So here's an issue I see...  in your post you said your address is N XXXnd Way, however the GPS location you included displays XXXnd Way (no "North).
 
Compounding that, there is a N XXXnd Way in that city/town, at a diferent location.
 
Please advise.

Yes, I can help with all of that.  Thanks for the reply.  First, if it's not showing as N 102nd way at my location, it's a mistake in the street name.  I can show county records showing that it's N 102nd Way for both my lot and my neighbor's.  Also, N (and presumably S) 102nd Way exist in other places in the town, but not contiguously (in other words, if you go south from my location some distance, but before reaching Main Street (which is the divider between N and S addresses on a street), then that will also be N 102nd Way, albeit with smaller N numbers (i.e. getting closer to 0, or Main Street in this case).  So all of that is to say that our street (only two houses on our section of N 102nd Way) should be labeled as N 102nd Way.  To add to the confusion, just to the west of my street is a new neighborhood that has a street named N 102nd Street.  They are different streets, obviously, but also use the N moniker there because the addresses are north of Main Street also.

OK, so before you can correct the house address, you need to submit an edit to correct the street name.  (which would explain the delay you've experienced thus far in getting  your address listed : (
 
Please refer to this Help Guide to correct the road name.  Spell EVERYTHING out -- no abbreviations.
 
Once the road name has been fixed, proceed with the change to the house number.
 
Thank you.
