help us make our maps better for free,
Sure, but on the other hand, Google maps are abysmal for my area - businesses are placed literaly 20 miles away from where they should be. We were being located in a location that is nothing but a retaining wall. But major, semi-famous businesses that my wife works with were being located 7 and 15 miles from their actual location (and, ironically, close to our house) and we were regularly fielding questions from people arriving at our deadend residential street asking for these businesses.
We have all sent info to Google trying to get them to fix these things and had to wait years to see it integrated into the database. If there had been a $100 expediting fee to get this done, I'm sure a lot of people around here would have paid it.
So yeah, if I can go in and fix the map for a business I own or represent, you bet I'll improve Google's map for free.
