Google Says How Long It Takes For Updates To Places/Maps Listings

Mar 8, 2012 • 8:30 am | comments (8) by | Filed Under Google Maps

Google Maps ReviewsVanessa fron the Google Maps / Places team has documented the typical turnaround time for the various types of Google Maps updates. As Nyagoslav Zhekov pointed out below, it is important for me to stress that these are the typical turn around times for now - it may change in the future, probably will as Google upgrades their systems right now.

The same questions come up over and over again in the forums, so Vanessa decided to post the ETA for the most common updates.

Here they are:

Updates In Days:

  • Newly verified listings (even though it reads “Active” in your dashboard)
  • Business titles
  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Website URLs
  • Pin marker moves
  • Descriptions
  • Hours
  • Categories

Updates In A Week:

  • Photos
  • Videos

Updates In Several Weeks:

    Merged listings
  • Duplicate listings
