google photos brokenYet another Google Local Business Places bug to report to you, this time with your photos that you upload.

There are confirmed reports in the Google Business Help forums that images that are showing up in your Google Local Business page may not be working. Instead they show a broken image icon in the form of a no entry icon.

Here is a screen shot of one business profile:

Google Business Photos Broken

As you can see, it looks pretty bad.

Jade Wang from Google confirmed the issue we are all seeing saying:

The gray circles are still appearing in place of deleted photos in some cases -- we are looking into the delay. I'll pin this thread in case anyone else is having this issue, too.

This is not impacting all business pages.

Yup. Having this problem on my page. Definitely looks sad when your business appears in search results and the Google+ local page has a no entry symbol!

Having this issue with my listing. It has been a week since I deleted the photo and I can not change to another photo. In the gallery that photo is listed, but there isn't a way to remove it. https://www.google.com/maps/preview/uv?hl=en&pb=!1s0x89c8439a65c99f15:0x6f4697e6d6aa224d!2m5!2m2!1i80!2i80!3m1!2i100!3m1!7e1!4shttps://plus.google.com/110653239014295794399/photos?hl%3Den%26socfid%3Dweb:lu:kp:placepageimage%26socpid%3D1!5smanchester+maryland+cleaning+service+-+Google+Search&sa=X&ei=SGWBUsSTC8_msAS2loDwDA&ved=0CAYQoio
