Moving to a new location is not going to be a huge task for your business anymore. You can follow a few easy steps and the task will be done. You need to edit your business address in Google Places or in the Google+ page admin area. It can create a new page or edit the address of the existing page. After the editing is done, the updates will be visible after around a week or two. You might need to go through a verification process at this point. If the new address is not visible yet, just click on the Report a problem tab to mark the location as business address in Google Places.
Earlier, we needed to create a completely new list in the dashboard. Sometimes we needed to reverify and remove the existing list. Then we required using the “report a problem” feature for reporting it as closed. Recently Google has also added the feature to indicate the new location that the previous list points to the new one to indicate the relocation.
So, the changing of address in both, dashboard or Google+ page for local admin area will surely update the previous list and create a new one. In that Google may or may not require the reverification process of the list should keep an eye on the index and dashboard for three weeks. If the list is still at the old address, you need to report a problem.
Google knows that it is a bit unpredictable for most of the SMBs to get it right. The listing owner should keep a few things in mind. The procedure was always consistent in all listing closing procedures. It could be managed within the management dashboard. It did not need SMB for the report a problem area. It always had a consistent outcome in the index.
In some cases, it might appear that this system almost mimics the outcomes of an old era, in MapMaker. You could change only change the address when it was in the same city and not too far. So, it is high time when the business should change their information at Google. These are the best moves you can make at the time to close a business and to know what is happening to your listing.
