Google Maps no longer works

Not showing in Google Maps and doesn't verify. The admin just shows "pending" - pending what? The postcard arrived and was verified days ago. We use Google for these services who in turn earn billions of dollars from us - I'd like something as simple as a Google Map listing to function correctly.

Sorry @Audio S


But to say Google Maps no longer works is kind of nonsense.


But obviously the page you are talking about ( is not showing on GoogleMaps anymore  and your  dashboard should tell you a reason for this.

Since I can't take a look onto your dashboard I can make a guess only for possible reasons.

Here we go:

your business is an online business  and not eligible for a local page.


I bet you will see a note not getting shown on Google on your  dashboard

Hi @Audio S


Looking at your page I would say there are a number of issues.


1) Your business looks to be online only and therefore not eligible for a business page.

2) Naming violation of the business page

3) If you are a local business, then you have selected service area business, which means you serve customers at their location >> online shipping does not qualify.


Please review eligibility guidelines:
