When we are a brand, we want to be found in maps. But what if we have 300 stores, which are shop in shops. How can we still be found in Google Maps!?

Hi @Stefan K,

 

I would need a little more context to give you a definitive answer.

 

Some considerations though;

 

Google is militant in regards to Google Maps directly reflecting what is in the 'real world'.

 

That being said, if someone can navigate to the business or a 'shop in a shop' and interact with someone that represents your brand, you may be eligible (even if it's within a department store).

 

If you are eligible according to guidelines, you can assign suite #'s to the locations and verify the listings, then change the location data of the pin to go exactly where the 'shop in a shop' is....Remember often times direction are for walking too!

 

Again, think digital to real world, if someone can't interact with a representative at the business at the location, its not within guidelines to have a legitimate map listing.

 

If you can give us an example of map listing links or examples of what you're trying to accomplish I can expand further. Thanks!

Hi Eric,

 

Thank you for answering.

 

We are a company that manages locations for brands. 1 of our customers is a clothing brand and they are mostly located in big department stores. So, they have a shop within a shop.

 

This should be eligible I think.

 

Please let me know if we can manage to this now, or in the nearby future.

 

My very best,

Is your client set up similar to something like this? Here is an example of a Louis Vuitton inside a Nordstrom. If so, you are eligible. My team and I have dealt with these nuances before for other 300+ location fashion boutique clients. I can reach out to my contacts at the Google My Business team if you are still experiencing issues. We are an Official Google City Partner.
