If you are a Nordic business owner, we want to let you know that we’re aware of the difficulties you're currently experiencing regarding inaccurate business information in your listing. Please bear with us - we’re looking into the matter and working to resolve it as quickly as possible. In the meantime, here are a few actions you can take to correct your free business listings.

Business owners in Sweden and Finland (and many other countries) should claim their existing listing or add a new listing for their business through Google Places. Verifying your free business listing allows you not only to ensure that accurate information appears on your business’ Place page, but also to enhance your online presence by adding photos, videos, and even real-time updates like weekly specials to your Place page.

Here’s how to claim your business through Google Places.

1) Claim your listing in Google Places. More information is available in our Finnish Help Center and Swedish Help Center.
2) Verify your listing by PIN (options are any of SMS/ Mail/ Phone) .
3) If you can verify by Phone or SMS, updates to your listing will go live within several hours. If you choose to receive your PIN by mail, you must wait for the postcard to arrive in standard mail so verification may take several weeks.

If you’re a business owner, use the Report a Problem to report any listing information that is incorrect:

If you’re not the business owner of a listing, but would still like to correct inaccurate data, please review some of the following options, such making direct edits to listings that have not been claimed or verified:
Once we review your submissions or edits, the update to the listing will go live in a few weeks.
We appreciate your patience!
