Cordell Crowley shared a screenshot of a message in the Local Search Forums that basically promised a 3-day turnaround when requesting ownership access to Google MyBusiness listings.
In most cases you had to wait for about 7-days before you could get control of an already claimed listing. Historically – there wasn’t even a number of days tied to the turnaround. Google is slowly shrinking the gap.
Waiting to get access was especially problematic if a business had a change in personnel and access was tied to a previous employee’s Google account, or they took the Google Logins with them when they left.
This is not a blanket change – Cordell also reported they had quite a few that displayed the 7-day message still – and that this particular 3-day message came for a Service Area Business.
Are you seeing a shorter turn around time for taking over an already claimed listing? Discuss it with us at the Local Search Forums
