I was frustrated because whenever I searched for may address on Google Maps it took me about a block east of where my office is located. Now, this might not seem like such a big deal...but it was, and let me tell you why.
The photos that went with the location showed a vacant field...yikes. I am in the newest and brightest and best neighborhood shopping center in the entire Hemet - San Jacinto Valley, CA. And when people look for directions, they find a vacant field...no way.
So, I stumbled and played around a bit...not exactly what happened, but it happened. I now have my pointer smack in the middle of the retail shopping center my business calls home...right where it belongs!
Unfortunately for me, I didn't have access to the video that Google has on YouTube explaining exactly how to correct this problem
Check it out...
So, if you home or place of business (or any point of interest to you) is off on Google Maps...even if it is just a little bit, like across the street. Watch this quick video (less than a minute) and see how easy it is to make the change.
I don't believe the change will be instant...if it is, it will probably be subject to verification. The Video says something about 200 yards...anything more will be verified, for sure. My move was about 2 blocks...so I'm guessing I exceeded the 200 yard rule, which is why it took some time. But, I have got to tell you, I am thankful and it helps with my LOCAL SEARCH results...which is where we all want to be found, isn't it?
