I have recently checked all of our branch addresses via Royal Mail’s postcode finder. I also exchanged a few emails with a lady working at the Address Management Centre, making sure that all data was consistent and up-to-date.
Armed with this data, I then decided to go back to our Google Places Dashboard and edit all of our address data to be consistent with Royal Mail’s data.
After seeing “Pending review” I expected the changes to go online soon, especially with Google Places itself referring to Royal Mail’s postcode finder (for making sure that you are using correct address details).
I used the exact data found below:
However going back to the Dashboard today (24h later) I am presented with the “Updated” status seen below:
My aim is to try and have consistent data across multiple sources. I also have been in touch with Local Data Company in an effort to update our listings…
Why is Google not playing ball?
All input is very welcome.
Many thanks in advance,
