The 1/2 in my business address not displaying correctly

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

My business, Relaxing Station, located in Longmont, CO; is not displaying the correct address on my Google My Business page.

 

The correct address is 1755 1/2 Main St., Longmont, CO

 

No matter how I enter it, GMB displays it as 1/ 1755 Main St.

 

Your help would be much appreciated!

Think this isn't anyhow a GMB issue  but a GMaps issue.

Try just searching in GMaps for the plain address "1755 1/2 Main St., Longmont, CO"

 

You will get this query back:

So my recommendation is fixing the addressing issue at first!

You can (should) create an address element for you address through MapMaker for "1755 1/2 Main St., Longmont, CO"

Hi Helmut,

Thanks for the response. Can you point me to where I might fix this issue in gmaps? I know it's a valid address with USPS. However I type it into GMB, it still displays 1/ 1755... perhaps I have to wait for somebody at google to review my edit?

@Robert L

not sure what you expect?

 

GMaps and its data base MapMaker  is made by people  and as such will have errors (or bad data) in a few cases.

Your address is such a case.


Your address seems to be not properly geocoded in their data repository for addresses (address elements).

 

This has nothings to do whether or not it's a valid address with USPS.

 

My recommendation was (ans still is) you should try improve the data base about your address in question through MapMaker
