How to add a location, landmark, or business to Google Maps on a computer or mobile device from Ayman's blog

Google maps

Google Maps features a robust collection of addresses and businesses around the world. But sometimes you`ll still come across the odd missing location. 

Luckily, when that happens, you have the ability to fill the gap by adding the location yourself. Just keep in mind that when you do so, it may take some time for the location to be added, since it may need to be reviewed before being added to Google Maps.

Here`s how to add a location, whether you`re using the desktop version or the mobile iPhone or Android app.
