Sometimes you might notice that the contact details of places on Google Maps seem incomplete. Hereโ€™s a tutorial on how to complete your database with phone numbers, emails, addresses, ZIP codes, and social media details from places registered on Google Maps.

๐Ÿ—บ Does Google Maps include all business contact details?

No. Google Maps is an ever-expanding database of free business data: marketers can find place names, addresses, phone numbers, and official websites. However, Google Maps does not provide information on business email addresses or social media accounts to reach out through.

Luckily, most businesses do list their contact details in one place โ€” their websites โ€” which are often mentioned on their Google Maps detail cards. For instance, this New York place does not indicate their email or socials on Google Maps, but they do list their official website.

A Google Maps place usually contains its address, phone number, and website. To find more contact details, one needs to actually visit their website.

When we head over to their website, and its Contact section, we can often find all the missing contact details. So are we going to go with this flow for every place we are interested in?
