Hi Guys,

I have verified a listing. it was "pending" and now it's "active"

How long does it take for the listing to go live on maps?

Re: how long does the listing take to go live?

Hi Sharack,

It usually takes 1 to 2 weeks to be live and searchable by name and phone number in Google Maps.

Another 2 to 3 weeks to show up for keyword searches. There is no guarantee that it will show for keyword searches though. And it's not as easy to check where the listing is now, if it's not on the first page, ever since the SERP's changed. :(
Re: how long does the listing take to go live?

Often even though it says 'pending' it's still live on maps.

Typical time frame varies based on backend data pipeline - but typically listing goes live within 1 week after PIN. However the link to view listing from the dashboard may not work for up to a month, so if you click view my listing it may not work because the link has not synced yet, even though the listing is live.

So search on maps for phone in this format (555) 222-3333 to see if it's live.

(Sorry Colan, didn't see your post - we cross posted. Great minds think alike!)

Yes Linda I clicked on the link from the dashboard and it returns "blank" ... I will try searching using phone number and see how it goes
