How to Report a Problem in Google Maps

 

When you come across a business page >> suggest an edit

 

Business Page Suggest and Edit

 

 

Select >> Place is permanently closed or doesn’t exist >> YES

 

Business Page Report a Problem

 

Select the correct label >> Add a note >> Submit

 

Business Page Report a Problem with Note

 

Note:

If you are the business owner, I would also report a duplicate via Business Support, this will be dealt with almost immediately rather then being queue’d

Secondly, if you are reporting something about a business page, use the “Add a Note” feature and add some details as to why you have labeled it : Closed, Doesn’t Exist, Spam, Private, Moved or Duplicate.

This will help a reviewer to understand the report and approve the label.
