Incorrect Google Map Pin Repeatedly Showing Up At My location.

Hi, 

 

Is it possible for someone, say like a competitor to alter google maps & move a pin from another location (808 Bourke St, Waterloo NSW 2017) to my address (18/849 South Dowling St, Waterloo NSW 2017) which in turn affects my local listings?

 

I had just recently moved it to its correct location & everything was fine, then all of a sudden the pin was back at my location.

Moving a marekr is possible (though not taht easy and needs very often an approval by other users or Google)

 

But lemme ask: 

Are the spcificationes below your or from the supposed competioner:

And in case this are yours: what are the analogue specifications of the other?

Hi Helmut,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Correct 18/849 South Dowling St, Waterloo NSW 2017 is mine.

 

I'd rather not give my competitors name on such a public forum, could I PM you please?

 

I've also noticed when I type:

849/849 South Dowling St, Waterloo NSW  2017

&

849/18/849 South Dowling St, Waterloo NSW 2017

Both of these address's pins are located at my address/building but don't actually exist.

 

Is their anyway to determine if these mistakes are a technical issue or deliberate? I cant just keep making changes and waiting 24 hours for some other problem to occur.

 

Thanks,

 

Kieran

 

Thanks

I can't quite replicate your address issue:

 

Searching for just "849/849 South Dowling St, Waterloo NSW  2017" I get a "did you mean decision":

But I still don't understand it

 

if https://goo.gl/maps/VFHwb33fUQ72 is correct (and I understood its correct)

 

What about any obscure guy or competitioner moving your marker?
