Google Maps Reincludes "Fix Incorrect Marker Location" Feature

Jul 31, 2008 • 8:09 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Other Google Topics

Maps Guide Sirene announced in a Google Groups thread that Google Maps has finally added the "fix incorrect marker location" back to the Google Local Business Center.

If you login, and edit your business listing, you will see a link that reads, "Fix incorrect marker location" on the right side of the page. Clicking on that link will open up a smaller window that looks like this:

Google Maps Marker Location

Then you can click and drag the red marker to the new location and click save. Google Maps will then register that update and in the future note the new location for your business's listing in Google Maps.

We have been reporting the outcry over Google removing this feature for over a month now. You can see how the old version worked over here.
