    Re: Can SABs have a mapmaker listing?

    Not if they have their address hidden, as traditional SABs should.

    But if the SAB also has a physical location open to walk-in traffic, like a plumber that also has a retail parts shop, then they could.

    But when you say can they have a listing? That almost sounds like you are wanting to set one up. Typically should not create listings in map maker. Best to create in Places dash and then if address is visible the listing will auto-generate in MM.

    Yup, but I wanted to check to confirm before I did anything in that dark world.

    Bearing in mind my last experience where I was required to draw on a new road :O

    Thanks Linda - and stop working on a Sunday! :P

    You can plug the G+ Local page CID number to the end of this URL to get the Map Maker listing - Google Map Maker

    If they have address hidden, it should not take you to a Map Maker listing.

    Re: Can SABs have a mapmaker listing?

    It's me again! So now I want to get a Map Maker listing for a business that was previously an SAB

    I am assuming that I follow the instructions Colan gave me in an earlier thread about changing the current SAB listing address to show the new physical address.

    And then Google will automatically generate a Map Maker listing...?

    So now that have a full-time staffed walk-in office? Not by appt? Those are requirements in order to show address. It also on maps needs to look like a walk-in office, hopefully with signage.

    Then yes, change the address in dash and a MM listing should be generated.

    Re: Can SABs have a mapmaker listing?

    Yay! Yes, proper full-time, fully manned office.

    I will make the change to the G+ listing at the end of next week.

    That's the official moving in day.
