As you can imagine the business owner is not very happy with this outdated representation of his business.

Google Street View is showing the wrong image on my Google My Business listing

People also often ask about the first image people see on their Google My Business listing. Business owners are often reluctant to use their Google My Business listing when the first image on their page is of a wall, a different business or a hedge. When a fence is displayed, it is not representative of the business. We know business owners would love the facility to update Google Street View for their business.

Google Street View doesn’t go to my business

Sometimes, there are places that the Google car doesn’t venture. For example, into some private roads or when they can’t get access. It can be quite disappointing when your beautiful building hasn’t made it on to Google Maps Street View. Here’s an example using Torrington Hall, in St Albans.

Although the view from Street View is correct for the entrance to the building’s car park, the imagery doesn’t do the building the justice it deserves.

Other questions about Google Street View

People ask all kinds of questions about Google Street View. When will it be updated? Can I get Google Street View for areas that are off-road? Can I have Google Street View updated for my business now? In the following sections we’ve tried to answer some of these questions.

When will Google Street View be renewed?

Google cars still create Google Street View. You’ll probably be familiar with the site of the cars with cameras on their roofs. You may even appear in Street View yourself somewhere, with your face blurred!

You can find out if your area is going to be re-captured soon by checking out their website.
