    I am having a lot of trouble with my Google Places Listing. I have verified this 2 months ago have a description, images, video, and about 30 citations pointing back to my places listing as well as 2 reviews. And yet when I search for my exact listing in Google it does not show up. Can anybody help me with this problem? Or tell me how I can fix this

    Need a little more info:


    • Can you see the option to see the Places entry in your Places dashboard?
      1. Log into your account, goto the listing dashboard, click on "View" in the top right corner. Can you open a page with a unique URL for this listing?
      2. If not, and there is a Places entry link your dashboard, does it display a message, when you click on it? If so, what does it say?
    • Do you show for a search in Google Maps?
      1. Search on maps.google.com for "business name and city"
      2. If you don?t see it on Maps, go in to the Places dashboard and click submit. You'll need to wait a few minutes for it to appear. Now, go to maps.google.com to see if you see it appear live.

    If you're still having problems, then troubleshoot or contact G directly:

    1. I can go into the dashboard and click on see your listing on google maps. All my information is there along with my reviews and videos and says active and verified.
    But when I click in the places search and type my name the actual google places listing doesnt show up.

    2. I was able to type in my name along with my city and my listing came up.

    What does this mean?

    Damn thats crazy just when I was really learning about this. Anybody have a guide on Google+ Pages or where I can get some information how to optimize for this or is it still the same thing?

    the techniques are still going to be pretty much the same for the time being. continue what you're doing for now and try to stay up-to-date with the new changes.

    I have claimed the Google Places listing and have total access to the backend, can edit anything, and can make offers with the new Google + Local listings, BUT for some reason it always shows the WRONG website address for my site no matter how many times I edit it. Instead of ending in a .com, it shows it ending in a .net....what in the hell would cause this?

    It is crappy for a few of my clients.. Their edits need some time for them to resend the activation codes again, and the best thing is that the changes were not done.

    I've had this problem. If you wait a few days the changes should pop up.

    There was a bug a while back that effected a lot of listings. Some listing will no longer show, but still be in your back end. I can fix some listings that were taken down. If it's unable to be fixed I can reset up the listing for you and make sure it associates with your old data/ citations. I can also create maps with no addresses required for only $75 each or bulk prices. PM for any map details.
