Wrong Picture On Your Google Maps Listing?

Do you have the wrong picture or logo of your business on your Google Maps listing? You are not alone.

A Google Places Help thread has one bank branch manager complaining that his bank is using a 3rd party logo. He works at Center State Bank and his real logo looks like this:


But the logo on the Google Maps listing shows:

How do you fix this? Well, you should claim your listing in Google Places, then make sure to add your own images to your listings.

With the image above, Google is sourcing it from a third party web site and believes it is related to the business mentioned above. Of course, Google is far from perfect, so they need your help.

Interesting, I did not know that Google automatically assigned logos if they were not present. I noticed in this case the this bank has many listings. If they claimed one of the listings and corrected the logo, would Google correct the rest of them?

A function that will allow an admin to change the business listing's main photo is actually a very simple function that "Google Places" developers can put there even in there sleep! So how come it is nowhere to be found?? tsktsk. I am so disappointed. I've been searching for a solution on this problem for weeks, and I haven't found anything!
