That would make sense cause the address is missing the #113 number and it wouldnt approved the edits, but I never edit the name or phone number and ther still highlighted. HmmmmmI've never seen this. Is it highlighted only when you are logged in?

I just checked a listing that I had made edits to the address. The edits were not approved and the address is highlighted just like in your example. So maybe it's due to unapproved edits??
Thanks for your advice about the listing Ill take it out.I never do any G+ editing but just logged into my own account and in edit mode all the same areas are highlighted except the map. Isn't it just highlighting the areas you can edit?
FYI I looked at live listing and don't see any problems. Except should not repeat the city they are in - in description. I always thought it could cause a ranking penalty and then Mike recently mentioned yes, 10 point ranking penalty.
Now I strongly believe you should not repeat the city that's in their address field in dash. I 'think' mentioning the next city over is maybe OK. So think you could say "serving the local area including Bradenton", just don't repeat Sarasota.
Since you've merged this listing, you were aware that you now should not do any edits in Places dash right? Just mentioning because many folks don't know that.
All my areas were highlighted like his. BUT forgot to mention I also did have the notice that some edits were not approved. BUT I have not edited anything so no idea what that's about.The example I looked at had the address highlighted but the description was not.
Hmmm, there's an exception to every rule. Was researching something totally diff. Found a Chiro ranking #1 who has city, state twice and still ranks.Except should not repeat the city they are in - in description. I always thought it could cause a ranking penalty and then Mike recently mentioned yes, 10 point ranking penalty.
I rarely see listings with more than 2 categories displaying. One thing I have noticed is that the listings that I have seen with 5 categories showing have all been pre-selected categories, nothing custom. And they usually don't match up exactly with what's in the places dashboard.I did stop doing edits in Places the only one I tryed to do is move my categories around because the Local page only showing two categories insteed of all five so I was trying to get them to show up. Do you know how to get them to show up?
Yes I have done that and I do see ranking for all cats but the two that show I rank 1st page and the 3 cats that dont show are on page 8 or 9. IDK if thats the cause or if I need to do more work for the other keywords/Cats. Its odd because I have done tons of work for "Air Conditioning" and it ranks poor and does not show cat in + Local but "HVAC Contractor" does show as a cat and I have done no work for it as far as website goes or linking and its on first page. I think it does matter if they show or not because of that, I may be wrong thats just what I have experienced with it.Yes Google stopped showing all the cats. I posted about it right after it happened. Often only one shows so you are lucky to have 2.
She still reads them and you still rank for them. You can prove this by searching maps for city + one of the cats that's not showing. Then you'll see that cat listed there in map search. So it's just a display issue that the other cats don't show on the G+L listing.
I had that same notice. I tried to add a suite# to the address a while back and it's not there now, so I assumed that's what the message was in regards to.All my areas were highlighted like his. BUT forgot to mention I also did have the notice that some edits were not approved. BUT I have not edited anything so no idea what that's about.
Edits to verified local Google+ pages appearing - Google+ Help
Edits that you make to your verified local Google+ page may be subject to review, so you may not see your changes reflected immediately. After you?ve saved your changes, three things can happen:
Some edits may go live shortly
Some edits may be pending review
Some edits may be rejected
You may see a message at the top of your page if any of your edits may still be in review. When you first verify your business listing your information is also subject to review. Note that in either of these cases, the review process may take several business days.
It will take as long as it takes for someone to approve and publish your edit. Because its an address change (adding a suite constitutes an address change) it requires approval which is done via Map Maker. Which means days to months.I recently added a suite number to our address in the Google Plus platform (actually required me to re-verify our listing even after we merged everything), as that's what we originally had in the back end of our old Google Places account but wasn't displaying in the front end.
Now once logged into my account our business name, address, phone number and description are all highlighted and in our places dashboard our listing is 'under review' anyone seen this issue yet?
I would imagine, because we added a suite number - it requires some human intervention? Any idea how long this will take?
Address change... days to months for approval? Yikes! Have a client in Colorado who just moved his store after a long, long, long time. I'll need to definitely give him a heads up on this one once they open the doors at their new location. Honestly though, I think updating Google will be less of an uphill battle than what it is going to take to update all of the citations out there with the old address.It will take as long as it takes for someone to approve and publish your edit. Because its an address change (adding a suite constitutes an address change) it requires approval which is done via Map Maker. Which means days to months.
