Sex Therapists, Good Luck Getting Into Google Maps

So we know that you do not want to use the word "google" in your Google Maps listing. Using google will lead to a manual review but so will using the word "sex."

A sex therapist is upset that his/her listing is still waiting for approval after "months" of sitting and waiting. The therapist said, "I am a sex therapist by profession - I have a PhD in human sexuality and I am 100% legitimate." The therapist goes on to explain he/she is dropping the AdWords campaign until something is done.

Well, I doubt the Google Maps team cares.

Mike Blumenthal, a Google Maps expert, shared one piece of advice. If your listing has been in review for 4 weeks, you can report it to Google using this form. I do suspect this one will get special attention but most in this situation will have to wait it out.

That is not to say Google does not include sex therapists on Google Maps, they do. But Google must review each and everyone manually, I believe.
