Remove local business listings from maps

Google Maps often display local business listings. When you are searching for local businesses, this can be a useful feature. At other times, however, the business pointers can clutter the map, or worst show competitor’s business on your map!

For example, in the following map of a block around our offices, several businesses are listed, such as one Indian and one Mexican restaurant. If you are a paid subscriber, ZeeMaps will allow you to remove these business listings from your map.

Within that, check the box that says “Remove local business listings from map”:

Once you have set this checkbox, now if you go back to the map, the local businesses will no longer show:

No Local Business listings in map

The business listings will not show on your map as long as you have signed-up for one of our paid plans.
