After receiving reports from marketers and businesses stretching from the U.K. to Hawaii, Google says they have fixed a technical issue that caused some business listings to vanish from Google Maps.
According to a post in Google Places Help last night from a Google employee: "We're aware some of the business listings were not appearing on Google Maps earlier today. This was a technical issue that's now been resolved."
Since Monday, the Help forum began filling up with reports of various types of errors, including duplicates, merge problems, lost reviews, lost stats, lost categories, lost changes, lost rankings, and numerous reports of "We do not currently support this location."
Google Maps was already under fire from Sunrise, Florida business owners after misplacing the city last week (for the THIRD time). Search Engine Land has since reported that Sunrise has since been returned to its rightful home.
