About two weeks ago when Apple launched Apple Maps Connect, I claimed Local SEO Guide, Inc.’s listing which is officially located at my residence. We also have an office in downtown Pleasanton. After eleven days of my listings status being “Reviewing”, I received the following in an email:
As I said about a year ago, “Apple Maps has actively tried to keep businesses located in residential areas out of the maps”.
So if you are doing business out of your house and don’t have a sign I think you have two options if you want to stay listed in Apple Maps:
1. If you are already listed in Apple Maps (like LSG is) don’t try to claim your listing
2. Find a designer who’s good at photoshop
