I've submitted location corrections to yellow pages in the past. From the listing I click "Improve Buisness Info" then click the location tab and drag the pin to the correct location. Some corrections seem to take effect, some don't before I forget to keep checking.

Agreed the lack of satellite images is a pain. I don't think that updating in Bing updates in the Yellow Pages, but I'm not basing that on any research or other hard data.

I've just estimated the location the best I can when adjusting the pin. Usually I'm moving the pin across a street or out of the middle of an intersection so I feel I'm improving the location even if I don't get it perfect.

Yellow Pages Addresses

Postby scerruti » Fri Jan 31, 2014 4:07 pm

I have a UR that arose from a result returned by Yellow Pages. The location returned to Waze was an interpolated address on a road far outside the shopping center where the business is located (correct address).

I was unable to find a way to submit a correct location to Yellow Pages and wonder if they do anything besides interpolation?

a) Is there a way to submit business location problems to YP.com?
b) Does yp.com use anything but interpolation?
b) If not, shouldn't YP search results get a special popup that says addresses are approximate?

Thank you, I missed the location tab the first time.

This correction is difficult because the map doesn't show a satellite image or the parking lot. I notice there is a Bing icon on the map. Do changes in Bing make it to Yellow Pages by any chance? Any tips for this situation?
