There have been some questions on the Apple support forum about how long it takes for a business listing update to make it to Apple Maps. While I don’t have any definitive information, here’s my speculation on how the process works when you “Report a Problem” with a business listing. If you have any insight […]
About once per month, according to my sources… That means if you submit an update to a location via Report a Problem, even if it’s immediately accepted, which is unlikely, it could take thirty days to see the change show up on the map.
Perhaps I am being overly-dramatic. I don’t need to catalog all the ways Google Maps/Places/+Local makes it hard for businesses to figure out how to work with it. Spend a few hours over at Mike Blumenthal’s blog for more on that and you’re brain will likely explode. This week’s launch (re-launch?) of Nokia’ HERE Maps is […]
We interrupt this Apple Maps blog to get you the skinny on Nokia’s newly announced Here maps service. While there is not a lot of available info on how businesses can work with Here (kind of like Apple Maps right?), I thought I’d cobble together any information I could find and list it here: How […]

Source: The Verge What do you think that number is going to look like after Christmas? Sooner or later, each of those 200 million devices are going to do a search on Apple Maps for a local business. Are you ready?
I have been looking into the case of the missing Didgeroo on Apple Maps. Didgeroo, Ltd, a London SEO & Web Marketing shop, has done everything by the book (a still-mostly-unwritten-book of course) – they have a Yelp profile and they have submitted their business data to TomTom (about two weeks ago), but they still are […]
Note: This list was last updated on 9.26.16 and is very much a work-in-progress. I have noticed a lot of confusion about how to add listings to Apple Maps for different countries. While you can do so via the “Report a Problem” screen on Apple Maps, all businesses should also make sure their data is […]
Tom Tom, the in-car navigation service, is a data provider to Apple Maps. While it’s unclear how much business listing data Tom Tom is providing, my sources tell me they suspect that Tom Tom is supplementing listing data provided by other sources in the following countries: Austria Belgium Canada Denmark Finland France Germany Ireland Italy […]
