As we have seen over the past few months, google local/maps has been going through a host of changes. It now seems that the business listings are being taken from another source rather than user submissions.

ALL of our listings have been completely removed from the google map. I am wondering if anyone else has seen a similar trend?

Our listing is still on the map as we entered it. G still shows our old office location too, which they have continued to do since our new address was entered and the old one was deleted. No changes here.

We have been removed from Google maps as well. Its strange, when I log in all my listing are active. I am trying to figure out the best way to handle this.

Sorry for the second post, still getting used to the way this forum works.

We are thinking of re-submitting our listing in a different account and deleting our present listings. In theory, we would wait four weeks and then be back in action.

I am also thinking of devoting a out of the way page, which Google will find but users generally wont bother with, to listing all of our locations. The idea would be that the crawler sees it and either decided to put these on the map or decides that our listings at the same address, with the same phone number, are worth keeping.

Does anyone have any better ideas or suggestions?
