However, an issue appears to be causing some troubles for those with a Google My Business account. As per multiple reports, the Info section or tab in Google My Business is not working properly.

Users are getting error 429 while accessing the Info tab in their Google My Business account. This is inconveniencing them as they are unable to edit or update their business info.

The issue appears to be widespread and there is currently no way to bypass error 429 on Google My Business. It is unclear what the exact cause of the problem is but it appears to be a fault at Google’s server-side.

When trying to access the Info tab on the Google My Business platform I am unable to see the page.

This is still based on speculation as Google has not shed any details on why users are getting error 429 when accessing the Info tab in their Google My Business account.

However, affected Google My Business account holders may not have to face this issue for too long as it has been acknowledged by support.

It seems Google is aware of this issue with Google My Business and a fix for the same is already being looked into. A Google Support Community Product Expert has also created a dedicated thread for this issue where official updates will be posted.

Thus affected users can relax as the issue might get resolved soon. However, there is no timeline provided for a fix so it is unclear as to how long it will take to address the issue.

The aforementioned issue is troubling business owners across the globe but it is still good to see that the tech giant is already working to fix the problem.

Hopefully, Google soon resolves the issue where Google My Business account holders are getting error 429 so they can edit or update their info without any hassle.
