Using map coordinates instead of addresses

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi guys

 

I represent a non-profit organization responsible for a large number of forests (about 80 forests).

We want to create business page to each forest, using the bulk option, but the problem  is that  there is no regular address for the forests, only coordinates, my question is if there an option to use coordinates instead of regular address

 

Thanks

Eyal

I'm not sure "forests" are eligible as Local Businessed at all.

Please read the guidelines (https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en)

Local business listings are allowed only for businesses facing in person their customers at the business location or at customers location.

Thanks Helmut
The thing is that right now the algorithm of the google places is creating independently for us "Business pages" for all our forests (it treats them as a business) with phone numbers that found randomly on the web (actually i don't know from where)
last time the algorithm insert on one of the "Business pages" , phone number of individual who (maybe) came to hang out in the forest with his family, so what happened was that people started to call him asking for directions and stuff , so we thought that the right thing is to create Business pages with the right info, but the problem was the address
There is got to be any solution for this issue
Thanks
Eyal

would you please mind providing couple of forest shell pages (it means
google created unverified listings with phone etc.)

@kkl i

 

Thanks so much for the samples.

 

Noticing the samples are from  Israel.

You anyway see me confused and I therefore took a deeper look at them.

 

Two of them  ("Ilanot") aren't for a forest but for an "Arbotreum" what is kind of great difference - its like a "botanical garden" or nature museum or so. Not a forest 

The other one ("Eshtaol Forest") is for a park

Supposed the arbotreum and the park have any kind of entry points and tickets they they are to consider as   "serving customers".

But I doubt especially the "Eshtaol Forest" is to consider as park.

Its more or less a forest I suppose.

 

Lemme escalate this thread to my Communication Manager and my fellows TCs - perhaps they can help more.

Hi Helmut

maybe i misguide you when i wrote "forest" because actually they are parks - forest with parks, all of them are free of charge , and all of them are serving travelers and holidaymakers, or just families that wants to hangout outdoor , and like i have wrote in the previous posts, Google is already creating for these parks unverified business pages , sometimes with wrong numbers - in the Ilnanot park we use to suggestion option to suggest the right number after google add a private phone number ,
The idea that we want to serve Google users the right and complete info
we really need some help here
Thanks
Eyal

Yes,
you "misguided" me little bit and yes Google told me your kind of
"forests" are likely eligible.

I'm still asking them about the coordinates part of your question.
Please be patiently until I get a word back from Google
