Google lets companies that don’t wish to show their addresses (like dwelling primarily based companies) on Google Maps or Google Search the power to label their enterprise as “service stage companies.” However beginning final Friday in line with Tricia Clements (@yourbizwatchdog) Google is now exhibiting the road views for these companies, which is clearly scary, creepy and never what these companies homeowners need.
Jason Brown posted an instance on Twitter of this taking place on Android for this service space enterprise. You’ll be able to clearly use the road view to find the house enterprise tackle, for those who needed to:
Amy Toman (@BubblesUp), an area search engine optimization, advised me “this can be a safety problem for a lot of home-based companies who’d been hiding their areas to not solely adjust to the Google My Enterprise Phrases of Service, but in addition as a result of they don’t need their dwelling addresses publicly seen. It might even be a problem for individuals who’d hidden their enterprise tackle because of private security considerations. Over time, I’ve heard from many enterprise homeowners who cover their addresses because of restraining orders or native zoning legal guidelines.”
Google is conscious of this and hopefully will tackle these considerations ASAP.
