New: Business forum wrapup videos, hosted by vanessagene! vanessagene 5/15/12 6:10 PM
Hey guys,

I'm trying out a new thing (inspired by TCs Linda and Nyagoslav): Each week I'm going to try to put together a little forum wrap-up. Just to hit some of the forum highlights — discussions, launches, fixes, etc.

I've posted my first one here: http://youtu.be/i6ED6fH-nB0

They'll live in a playlist on the Google and Your Business YouTube channel. They're very low budget, so be kind :) 

Hope you find these helpful! 

- Vanessa

Great job Vanessa!

As I mentioned via email I think that was the perfect overview and I think users will really appreciate the updates and transparency.

For those that don’t know you very well it will really help put a face on Google Places.

Vanessa is the new Matt Cutts of local!!! :-)

Hi Vanessa,
3 little ideas: 
- never ever again explain why you are making videos, just do it, people do such things
- try to look in the camera, I know it's creepy 
- keep on doing.

regards Seitenmeister

Hi,

For the Suite no will google detect and move the Suite # in Places and move it to Address Line 2 and to the new Map Maker field?  Also do we need to do anything with web directory data or will it all match up wherever the Suite # is and whatever format its in?

Or do we need to edit Places and Map Maker where available?  And do they have to be done in any order and are Map Maker moderators all clued up to the change?

I have a moderator moving an existing open office listing in Places to a scrape for a Closed office in Map Maker, which has been 'moved' to the open office, at the moment. They have put the Suite no at the front in the search result.

Thanks for the info. I checked the forum for the "We currently do not support this location" bug. my listing was verified a couple month ago but was updated a couple days ago. I started seen the message yesterday. Can that be the reason?

@Alon - We've fixed the issue I mentioned in the video. If you're seeing 'we do not support' on your listing, get in touch with Google Places support (see #4): https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/business/OqKS72sqrzA Give them up to a week to get back to you, they're busy with a bunch of requests from users right now.
