Google Mobile Maps Drops India Temporarily

Nov 12, 2008 • 9:10 am | comments (0) by | Filed Under Local Search Engine Tips & Optimization

A couple days ago, Google Mobile Maps users reported over at Google Groups that India was no longer showing up in Google Mobile Maps. Well, to be honest, the satellite views were showing, but the ordinary map view was not showing India.

People at first thought it might have been a political move by Google, but all it was, was a bug.

On November 8th, it was reported and on November 11th, Maps Guide Tom confirmed the issue, saying:

Thanks for your great reports. I'm looking into this issue and I'll update you as soon as I have more information.

A day later, on November 12th, we have confirmed reports that the issue has been fixed and map view for India is now showing up fine in Google's Mobile Maps application.

Forum discussion at Google Groups.
