    Correcting Google Maps Street Name in MM

    I am curious if anyone has had any luck editing street names in Google Maps. In this case Google is showing S. Washington Ave, but the actual street is just washington Ave. USPS does not recognize S. Washington Ave. Any thoughts? Also, Is it that much of a concern in regards to Website, Places, Citations all matching?

    I can probably help you resolve this issue but I need to know where this intersection is located.

    Hey DustyBones,

    The edit was approved and the street name now excludes "S." or "South"

    Funny! and thanks....I checked it yesterday and all showed S. Washington. I was thinking all was going backwards. At any rate. Thanks! A tip of the hat to you! Can you share some insight as to what helped this happen?

    Time and patience. Basically the first edit was denied by a reviewer who may have not understood the situation. I made a 2nd edit stating the same exact information as the first and that was approved.

    I trick I use is to make the edit and leave it alone until a Google reviewer reviews it. If you have other people approve the edit, or approve the edit from a different account it tends to slow down the process.

    Best Regards
