CID is not valid

 1. Full business name: ARGO TRAKAI

2. Current business address: Vytauto g. 89, Trakai 21105, Lietuva

3. Current telephone number: +37067130320

4. Google+ URL : https://plus.google.com/104426064721119932984/about

 

Hello, GMB,

 

I am trying to connect Google Street View with Google My Business, but all the time I am getting message that CID: 17076453331691874739 is not valid.

This CID is linking to my business place https://www.google.com/maps/place/Vytauto+g.+89,+Trakai+21105,+Lietuva/@54.6369956,24.9314221,17z/da...

Here is another CID: 6893742236391923642 (I found it on https://cidfinder.view3.com/ ) which links to my business also https://www.google.com/maps/place/ARGO+TRAKAI/@54.6369956,24.9314221,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x0...

Problem is that via Street View editor adress search box I can find just CID: 17076453331691874739 and it is always is not valid on Confirm step.

 

What I am doing wrong or how can I enter there another CID or I have to do something else?

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Best Regards,

Saulius

Its bit hard for me to replicate your steps as I'm not able to use your basic URL www.google.com/streetview/business/publish at all - getting then a 404 

 

But would like to ask you what happens if entering an other search string in your page 

Please try just this ARGO TRAKAI Vytauto g. 89 Trakai 21105 LT and see what happens then

 

Btw I get strange different result on GMaps if searching for 

this ARGO TRAKAI Vytauto g. 89 Trakai 21105 LT versus

this ARGO TRAKAI Vytauto g. 89 Trakai 21105 Lietuva  or just versus 

this ARGO TRAKAI Vytauto g. 89 Trakai 21105 

 

And only in the latter case I get the same result as for the correct CID through

maps.google.lt?cid=6893742236391923642&hl=lt

 

 

But since Streetview questions belong more to GMaps rather then to GoogleMyBusiness I would encourage you posting your issue (at least addtional) in the GMaps help forum:

ai just can confirm your second mentioned CID "6893742236391923642" ( maps.google.co.uk?cid=6893742236391923642 ) is belonging to the G+ URL https://plus.google.com/104426064721119932984/about
I have no idea or can't understand under what circumstances you got the message about the invalid CID.
Can you please elaborate what you meant or concretely did "trying to connect Google Street View with Google My Business, but all the time I am getting message that CID: 17076453331691874739 is not valid."

I have no idea how (or based on what HC article) you are going " to connect Google Street View with Google My Business"

I should have added one point:

the CID 17076453331691874739 is not only wrong regarding your streetview
task.
Its an invalid CID at all.

Any valid CID [cid-id] should show a unique result for any GMaps URL like

maps.google.com/?cid=[cid-id]
But maps.google.com/?cid=17076453331691874739 doesn't show us such a unique
result at all.
