So here I am trying to make Google Places understand that Wellington Point, Queensland, is in Australia while Google Search plays God again and releases a fancy algorithm improvement, cross-referencing listings with user’s blocked sites.
The thing is, Google sometimes gets it wrong, and there is no way to tell Google except through prayers. So I’ve been uploading all the Nandos stores in Oz into Google Places, and actually went back to an existing listing to correct a postcode that was wrong (error that Google didn’t spot at the time the listing was initially reviewed and accepted). And now that I did the right thing and corrected my postcode, some stubborn and uneducated idiot with very possibly no passport has been consistently rejecting it because it or he or she cannot comprehend that Wellington Point is in Queensland, Australia. Even Google Maps knows that, but Google Places doesn’t seem to be aware of the existence of Google Maps, and keeps on rejecting my now correct listing citing “Invalid country” for a reason .
So, Google, how about some geography lessons?
