More On Bing Local and Here Prime Places

by Jo Shaer, on September 8, 2013

Having whinged about the ineptitude of Bing in the UK and Nokia's Here Prime Places in the past, I am happy to report some better news.

I have a new client who has no local presence. Whilst she struggled to get an account set up for herself, I was able to do it using my existing account with Here Prime Places. Once we had entered her details, we were asked to verify.

There are two ways. One by uploading a scanned copy of a utility bill. We did this and within hours we had our verification. Two weeks later, our listing is live in both Here Prime Places and, more importantly, had also filtered through to Bing Local.

The other verification method is by waiting for a postcard which could take 6 to 8 weeks. And, trust me, my previous experience is that it will.

Worse still, when the PIN eventually arrived, it didn't work.

However, they kept reminding me by email that I had not verified. So, I responded explaining the issue and they sorted it out for me!
