GMB Street View

Hello. I am wondering if it is possible to update, change, or request a change of the street view for your business. Our current image should be moved a little bit so that it shows the outside signage and such. Right now its just displaying a black wall.

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi @Ryan L

 

Street view does not generally get updated until the car comes around again.

 

A Couple of options:

 

1) It sound like it is either too close or focusing on the PIN that may be off center. Try adjusting the PIN marker ( BUT use the Map View tool )

2) You could use the Google street view app to add your own little street view. This wont replace the current one but be added as an additional.

3) In the street view you can report the image ( but try #1 first) . In the image top left next to address there are 3 small dots, click on this and report image.

Thanks Tim. For #1, How exactly do I go about getting the pin changed? Is this something that is easy to do?

Hi @Ryan L

 

For #1  if you follow my article, it shows you were the PIN is displayed real time in Maps. From the angle of the view you should be able to see why the street view shows that image.

 

You can then drag and drop the PIN to a new position.
