Correct Address & Still Not Listed on Maps

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I recently got an error with my address which is only showing my business' City and State rather than the full address. I've tried multiple different variations and still with no luck, have not been able to get my correct address to show for my Google My Business location. Can anyone help please?

 

Wausau Homes Wautoma

W7829 State Road 21 & 73,

Wautoma, WI, 54982

(920) 787-3400 but can be reached at (312)725-8835

https://www.google.com/maps?cid=3901986656437540312&hl=en

 

Address Line 1: W7829 State Road 21 & 73

 

Am I messing up the address line with this?

 

Please any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank You,

Erik

Hi Erik

 

Obviously there is an addressng issue responsible for any hassleyou have with the listing (I can see this in MapMaker - link "Wausau Homes Wautoma")

 

Before giving you any advise please answer my questions below:

 

The marker in MapMaker is obviously  set for this location:

44.071193,-89.274162 which is in GMaps this location (red marker in the center of the map)

Screenshot 2016-07-21 at 17.54.20.png

 

is this your correct business location?

If so this location is known in GMaps as "w7815 WI-21 Wautoma, WI 54982"

rather then the address you specified as  "W7829 State Road 21 & 73 Wautoma WI 54982"

Searching btw in GMaps for  "w7829 WI-21 Wautoma, WI 54982" centered the Map at the same location  as with my screenshot but doesn't give any marker pinpointing the result.

 

Therefore my guess about your issue is this:

there is a lack on having defined a proper address element in GMaps and MapMaker for the address "w7829 WI-21 Wautoma, WI 54982" 

 

In case the above its not your location: please specify its exact coordinates.

(you can do this applying a rightclick on GMaps on the house of your business and then "what"s here?")

Hey Helmut,

When I add the address you mentioned in maps: w7815 WI-21 Wautoma, WI 54982, it's adding the pin to the building east of our location.

 

The correct location is the one specified in the previous post. When you go to street view you can see the location there with the logo. It's really odd that it's not recognizing the address. When I try making the address w7829 WI-21 Wautoma, WI 54982, I still get the error.

 

I'm gonna contact the manager of this location to see if there is an address issue.

 

Have you ever had something like this happen? I'll follow up when I hear back from that location manager.

 

Thanks so much for your analysis and help.

@JoyHawkins thanks for marking the other thread of  @Wausau Homes W marking as dublicate.

 

 @Wausau Homes W I belive you should take care primary to get your listing with a valid GMaps address - the PIN can adjusted perhaps bit later.

Actually the address you are using in oyur listing and in MapMaker is resonsible for not getting shown with a marker on GMaps.

That's IMHO the main problem to fix. 


Knowing the exact coordinates one should be able to create an address marker for your location as well if there isn't one already defined (and I got the impression there isn't such yet created)

Fortunately Joy should be able to create for you an address marker (I as a German can't do this for any location in the USA)

If he provides the lat/long I can try and fix the address. Currently I have
no clue where the address should be.

@JoyHawkins Thanks for your offer!

 

@Wausau Homes W I reapeat what I wrote in one ot my previous postings her to you:

we need your exact location coordinates in order to create a valid address element in MapMaker and Joy can do this.

Please apply the following:

"In case the above (in my above screenshots) its not your location: please specify it's exact coordinates.

(you can do this applying a rightclick on GMaps on the house of your business and then "what"s here?")"

@JoyHawkins @Helmut Geissler thanks for your assistance.

 

Here are the correct lat/long coordinates.

 

You can see the logo from Street View also.

 

Hope this helps.

Hey There,

So how you should list it in GMB is:

W7829 Wisconsin 21

Tell me if that works.

I think your main issue is that you're trying to list both names for the road and you need to just pick one. Lots of roads have more than one name but if you list both it will result in an error.

Hey Joy,

 

I'm still having an issue with this. For some reason it's not letting me use images.  :-(

Somehow the address has been hidden on this listing and it's currently set up as an Service Area Business. Was that intentional?
