Google We Currently Do Not Support The LocationThere have been many businesses suffering with the we do not support your location bug hindering Google Maps businesses for a long time.

Google's Jade Wang said in a Google Business Help thread that they have fixed some of those who have issues with it. She wrote:

Good news -- we’ve been able to bring back some of the listings that incorrectly had the “We currently do not support this location” error. Many previously deleted service area businesses that had their addresses correctly hidden a few weeks ago are back.

If your listing’s not back yet, please know that we are still working on it. In the meantime, please review the quality guidelines and this article about service are businesses. Make sure your listing complies.

I wonder if this is all fixed.

One clients' site has returned (sort of) after months of Google Places nonsense - wrong addresses, disappearing and reappearing listing... We can now find it by name, but not nearly as many search results as before the problem started

Google maps is so broken, Google should just turn it off until fixed.

No It isn't all fixed, my places page is still having the same issue even after thoroughly scrutinizing it against the guidelines. My incoming calls have plummeted, it has been months now.

Unsatisfied!

my listing is active for about 3 weeks then down for about 6 weeks. happening for about 6 months now. most recently my listing was active for 3 days before falling victim yet again to not support the location. Laurie, the lady with Google who I have been in contact with is literally no help... Bet this would not happen if I paid for adwords!

I also pay for ad words & it has happened to me, I never show in the Google places & I have registered twice. on another issue, we used adwords for our photography company & paid £300+ per month for several years. we never showed in the natural listings. Thus we never dare turn off the ad words. It wasn't until we started another business, turned off the photography ad words to put the money towards our new business, that we started showing in the natural listings for the photography. What does that say about Google!

I am getting the same error, why would I do ppc when they can't even get my places listing to work.

Ive just noticed my business page is missing. My business has gone very quiet. Was wondering why. I dont understand why Google couldnt email me to let me know if they were going to delete my business page. Pretty frickin rude google!

Turning google places off until fixed would be the fairest. It would even the playing field for all business to have the opportunity to compete equally rather than our competitors thriving with us out of the loop, dropped from places. I find it inconceivable that google is literally choosing which business fail and which succeed. Non of us have asked for google places to be the most popular place to find our business--it just is. Most of our customers do not go to the yellow pages, angies list, bing, yahoo, or even ad words. That's right--they go to google places--where we are not. And, I'm guessing any one of us would be happy to pay for google places instead of being dropped from it. How is it possible a complimentary service is the maker or breaker of our passion and hard work? Thank You for reading this as it is simply my outlet that is not calmed by google's generic email responses telling me to "hold tight". Good Luck to everyone!
