    Entered PIN to confirm local listing - how long before my listing is active?


    Does anyone know how long it usually takes for a local listing to become active after a PIN is entered?

    Don't it say something like it generally takes a few hours or days? I can't really remember though because I haven't done one for so long

    Couldn't you find it on their support site or something?

    Scrap my few hours or days, it says it takes a little longer here http://support.google.com/places/bin...B&answer=16174

    My agree didn't show up so just in case I'll retype it here:

    Thanks so much for finding that! I really looked hard and could not find that info! Most of what I was finding was telling me how long it would take for my PIN to be mailed.

    Granted...I couldn't sleep last night and was searching at 4 a.m. so I may have had impaired search skills.

    Usually it gets activated as soon as one enters the verification PIN code. I have done it many a times, and had never faced any such issue.

    Me neither, I always had some issues with the card getting to my adress (took ages, people treat it as adverts and tossing it, etc.) but never with the PIN code itself.
