    Google SAB map marker with review star

    Hi - I just changed the Google places page address info for one of my companies to a SAB and afterward I noticed that it shows with a star, which I speculate indicates review stars, in Google Maps at: https://www.google.com/maps/search/a...17.1665709,13z

    If this is old news, someone just tell me. Thanks!

    Here's what it looks like:

    Hey Tim,

    I 'think' I know what's up but not positive.

    A) When I look at that listing there is no star for me, just a regular dot.

    B) But near there I saw a star on the map, so I went to check and it was my Chiropractor. Checked their listing and I had saved it so there was a star.

    So then I Googled their name and went to maps and it was similar to yours. But because address was not hidden, it was a tear drop with star at bottom, instead of a circle (for hidden address) with a star in the middle.

    So check your listing and see if you saved it and there's a star on it. If so, I think that's what's up.

    You know Tim, I had mixed feelings. On one hand I was like: YAY something new!
    On the other I was like: Oh no not one more new thing!
