How To Add a Location To Google Maps

We are lucky enough to live in the age of the internet and Google Maps is an app for the ages that has been a life-saver for many, myself included.

A location can be anything from a landmark, to a business to a building. The location you want may be missing or have wrong information and you might want to add it on or correct it. And if you have a Google account, you can add a location to Google Maps.
