MapMaker is missing a lot lately. I generally have to do like 3-4 different types of searches. I'm still using the search on Google for site:plus.google.com (or inurl:google.com) for most things.

I've seen some cases lately where site: is missing some listings. All unverified listings from what I can tell.

Also, some of those "shell" pages are unverified listings in Google Maps. Not all, just some. I'm wondering if the "shell" pages all actually have disconnected active listings and the listing NAP has been changed so you can't match them up immediately. Or could have been marked moved or something else.

Joshua,

If you want to list a couple examples (either on this thread or PM me) I can see if my other workarounds work for it.

Site:plus.google.com does usually miss them if they are unverified and were created in Maps in the last year because they would never have been assigned a plus page URL.
