Can't find places ID

I'm trying to locate the places ID for this business. I've tried using the places ID finder but the business is not showing up on the map, or when I search.

 

Is there any other way to find the place ID?

 

Thank you

not sure it helps you.
But the cid parameter is cid=5647168253095250354

And this page seems useful too:

do you by any chance have the URL of your location "Carne" as from your dashboard?

If so I should be able to figure out the placeID from there too (searching in the source of the G+ classic page for data-placeid=" )

I believe the place ID is ChIJU9e-bTnmopURsgmbMJvFXk4

If you run this search (with your own key, lat.long keyword etc) https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/place/nearbysearch/json?location=-34.9118855,-57.9467505&radius... you should be able to retrieve the place ID for various locations.

Hope that helps.

Hi @Chris L,

 

An alternative method to look up a location’s place ID is to check the LocationKey object in a Location object for a placeId field that contains the place ID for a location if this location has been verified and is connected to Google Maps. You can use this placeId field value in various Places APIs. Please note that the placeId field may not be present for unverified locations.

 

To get the place ID for a specific business location you manage in Google My Business, you can send a GET request via the Google My Business API to get the specified location and check if this placeId field value exists for this location.

 

If you have more questions related to the Google Places API, please find support on the Google Places API Community and Support page.

 

Thanks,

Terry
