Map Photo and address question

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi everyone

My business name is Lavadoras y Secadoras de Mazatlan

7600 Calle Estepa Prados Del Sol

Mazatlan, Sinaloa 82124

Tel. 669-153-8843



Here is my question. The map shows the correct location; however I am on the corner of two streets. My business opens to the side street, Pampas which carry no addresses so I used my address. My house and my business reside in the same location but the storefront is to the other street. So when people search for my business they get a picture of the front of the house and not the storefront. Is their a way to substitute or change this picture?

Hi Lavadoras

I don't believe you can change the street view image (happy to be corrected if that's not the case). Technically the street view is correct, as that's the address provided. I also see what you mean about that not representing the business.

What you can do is put a picture of the storefront in your GMB photos. That may change some of the imaging Google is using.

You also need to review your 5 star review of yourself. By all means feel free to ask customers for reviews, but not by leaving your own review first.

Thank you for responding.

I was looking at other reviews and they did a review for themselves and I
did think that was odd but I followed through.
Do you think I can delete that because I am of course embarrassed for that
and that was a error.

Thank you for explaining my errors.
