Question. I have just made a Google places business account. but the dashboard shows status as “Pending – being reviewed.”I just want to know when my business will be listed in google search.
Answer. No one knows. Sometimes it sails right through. Other times it takes FOREVER and a day. What this means is that a human at Google needs to “review” your Google+ Local listing. In my experience, the best trick is to advertise on AdWords Express, and then call tech support and complain that your listing is not live. Then once it goes live, you can re-evaluate and – dare I say – cancel your AdWords express ad. You can also try emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – that is their Google+ local help team.
But it takes time.
