Wait time to publish corrections

We review all edits, so it may take some time to update search results.

What makes a good edit


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


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


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


Use specific categories when describing a place. For example, use "Clothing store" instead of "Store".


Enter the hours 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. 


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