Do changes to google places effect google maps listing?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I made changes to my google places accout weeks ago and my old business address and info still comes up on google maps, I am wondering why it is taking so long for the changes to show up on a google search.  Do I have to change something in google maps or did I not properly make the changes.  Maybe I have an accidental duplicate listing.

 

Thanks,

Patrick

Patrick,

 

This community is for Adwords usage. You can discuss the same in Maps forum.

 

Per my understnding, you have changed the business address but you did not change the address in google maps account. If this is the case then login to your google places/maps account and then update the address. It will take couple of weeks and then the new address will start appearing.

 

Hope this will help !!

Hi there;

I think Foyzul's answer is basically correct

We had a similar discussion about Places and location extension; I think the same would apply to maps;

Is there a separate website for google maps or is it just the map marker in
the edit section of google places?
