|Turnaround times for edits to Google Places listings||vanessagene||1/11/13 1:03 PM|
There have been a lot of questions in the forum lately about verifying new listings and making updates to existing ones, and we wanted to clear up some of that confusion. We’ve been doing some work on our backend, cleaning up the pipes in order to make more improvements to Google Places over time. Here are the typical turnaround times for updates you make in your Google Places account.
What will usually update in a few days*:
What will take about up to two weeks:
What will update near instantly:
What will typically take several weeks to resolve:
*In the past, we've recommended you "poke" your listing to see if that instantly updates the information you see live on Maps. Note that pokes will no longer be instantly effective and can take a few days to process.
***I’ve heard a couple reports that some offers are taking a day or two to appear live on listings. Keep me posted here in the forum if you’re experiencing this.
Also, please note that reviews are not affected by these new changes. If you’re experiencing technical issues with the reviews on your listing, please see this sticky post for more information.
Edit: Hey guys, Jade here. Just wanted to note that during big updates or other unusual times, these turnaround times can be longer -- so please view these as estimations rather than guarantees. Thanks!
