Did you know of this feature on Google Maps where you can mark that your business location is within another location, for example a trade center?

I just found it and I haven't came across any mentions of this before so I decided to share it.

You can't add it when you set up your address. Instead, you have to "see your listing in maps" and then click "edit your business from there". That's where Google will ask you "is your location within another location". Very secretive.



Not sure what the effect would be but I assume it would be useful. Maybe for people who are already inside that mall and search for this service.

Now that you mentioned it - no. I did it yesterday and didn't bother to check assuming it is all fine.

And now I opened it only to see that the field is empty. I added the mall again. Usually any changes I make are live within less then an hour. I will check again on Monday.

Just an update in case someone lands here: A month later Google still hasn't approved the suggested change. The location is still not marked inside the mall.

I am now thinking that this kind of changes require manual approval and it just takes a lot of time for someone to review it.

Still, here are some of the things I tried (and they didn't work)
- suggested the change as the listing manager;
- suggested the change as a user;
- had other users to suggest the change (high-profile Google guides)
- went to the damn place, took a photo with my phone, and submitted it to the GMB listing as a user;
- searched for the address on Google Maps, clicked on "add missing business" and linked it to it;
- moved the pin in the center of the said mall;

The client still doesn't have a location specific page. Their new website is getting ready tomorrow, I will link the GMB listing to their location page and see if that helps.

This is so exciting! :LOL:
