  • You'll hear different time frames because the updates aren't on any schedule we're privy to. Generally, it's a 4-8 week cycle, give or take... so where your changes land in that particular cycle will determine when you see them live.

    Google chooses updates based on a number of factors, I'm sure, as the cycle never seems to be consistent.

    While waiting, it's a good practice to poke the listing every 3-4 weeks. Just log into the edit screen and submit the listing without making any changes. This will show Google that you're actively managing the listing and it will definitely cut down on some common problems.

    I have been waiting since mid-September for an address change. It is very frustrating.

    It was 5 weeks for the content and 7 weeks for the complete listing on the last one I did.

    First the added content showed up, no pictures, then two weeks later the complete listing with all of the changes showed.

    I also went in and "poked" the listing twice during this time frame.

    I don't know why you have two threads for the same thing but....

    It will take as long as Google wants it to take.
    1-12 weeks...
    Sorry but that's the way it is.

    Like has been said be sure to poke your listing every once in a while.

    It depends on how you uploaded the changes:

      you're welcome!

      to those of you who are getting hung up, it is worth it to dive into mapmaker, look at the history of your listing, and see if you can see any issues there. sometimes you can fix issues right in mapmaker, much quicker than waiting for it to be assigned to a google employee to look at it.

      If you don't know what mapmaker is, I made a youtube video about it here:
