Confirming A Google Local Business Listing

While logged into my Google account, I searched for my business name and noticed for the first time by my Local Business Center listing a link labeled – “Is this accurate?”

Apparently this type of user editing has been around for awhile but I don’t recall ever seeing it.

I logged out of my Google Account and then searched the term again only to see the same “Is this accurate” link again.

Clicking through then produced a set of options to confirm or cancel – “This address, phone number, map or business info is not accurate.”

While finding Google Local Business Center listing data annotation on one level is encouraging, the absense of clearly defined rules at the source as to who can or can’t append a Google Local Business Center listing remains disconcerting.

I am sure there are myriad reasons why Google has chosen to go about managing its business listing data in this manner.

In lieu of a clear set of Local Business Center rules, what those reasons are remain a mystery.
