What happens when a user suggests edits to my location on Google?

Anyone can suggest changes to a business profile on Google, and Google takes these suggestions into account to make sure the listings are as accurate as possible. If Google trusts the source and accepts the suggestion, it becomes a ‘Google update’.

Our platform will not overwrite information from Google updates but will instead pull in the update as a ‘Profile suggestion.’


If you accept the suggestion, we will try to update the location’s profile, but it is Google’s decision to accept/reject the update coming from our platform after reviewing it on their side.
