Google Places LogoAll the complaints about Apple Maps with iOS 6 one might forget how many issues Google Maps has had over the years and how many issues Google Maps has today. We probably spot three or so bugs per week, of which many, never get resolved.

Google Maps has had its share of major issues, like sending people to the wrong emergency room and many many more cases.

That being said, Jade Wang from Google posted yet another bug they are looking to resolve. She posted this in the Google Places Help forum. The bug may result in your business listing missing it's phone number, web site address and business description. Jade wrote:

Seeing some reports of phone numbers, websites, or descriptions missing. The team's looking into it. This would have happened within the past 5 days or so.

You can post your examples below. I'll come back with an update when I've got one.

I strongly recommend you check out your Google Maps profile and make sure it is okay. If not, feel free to complain in the Google Maps forum.
