Factual maintains a global data set of points of interest and businesses and builds this data from a wide variety of sources to ensure we have the most high-quality data available to power the development of products, analytics and marketing.

Factual does not currently provide a mechanism for individual submissions to add or update business listings, and instead relies on a network of trusted data contributors that help to validate, aggregate and ensure the ongoing accuracy of core business attributes.

If you have a business listing to add or update, we encourage you to work directly with a Factual Trusted Data Contributor (TDC).

Trusted Data Contributors

Factual’s Trusted Data Contributors (TDCs) provide management interfaces and other user-friendly services to make it easy to get your data into their systems, as well as manage and distribute it to Factual and other publishers. Contributions to Factual from our TDCs are considered the most authoritative data in our algorithms and models – Therefore, we strongly recommend using a TDC to easily ensure that your Factual records are up-to-date and accurate.

Frequently Asked Questions

As of August 2018, Factual is not accepting direct additions or edits to business listings in our database. In order to protect all parties from fraud and also from honest mistakes, any submission that Factual receives from a business owner or manager would require verification. Factual is unable to validate any forms of verification, and for this reason, we cannot make direct additions/edits to business listings.

As an alternative, we encourage business owners to work with our Trusted Data Contributors, who are able to verify business information. As trusted partners, TDCs will submit all business listing information to Factual and any other location data providers, and help ensure that all information is accurate.

Please also see “Why did Factual stop accepting updates directly”

Factual is not a database aggregator or a listings management company, and does not provide services or support for SMBs, that Trusted Data Contributors (TDCs) can provide. Factual aggregates POI location data to build a global POI dataset, which is used to create products for Products, Analytics and Marketers.

Factual is not a database aggregator or a listings management company for small businesses, and does not provide services or support for SMBs. Factual aggregates POI location data to build a Global Places dataset, which is used to create products for enterprise businesses and marketers. It’s important to us that the business information within our dataset is accurate, which is why we encourage you to work with our Trusted Data Contributors (TDCs), which ensure the validity of your information. For more information on Factual’s business and products, please visit www.factual.com

Depending on the TDC you choose to work with, the process may vary. The TDC will work with you to ensure that your business information is accurate, up-to-date, and reflected within the databases of location data providers, online directories, etc.

Some TDCs will charge a fee to manage your business listing. Pricing varies depending on the company and service. Please visit any of our TDC partners for more information.

The time it takes for an update to be reflected may vary by TDC. We encourage you to engage with your TDC of choice and work with them to understand the entire workflow and process for managing your business listing. See here for TDC partners

If you have already submitted a listing, your data will continue to be processed and added to our database. We encourage you to work with a TDC to ensure the most accurate reflection of your business listing.

Please note that if you have re-submitted your listing due to a change of address or address update, the endpoint pages for these listings, including closed businesses will still exist. Endpoint pages for closed businesses have an existence score score of 0, which means “does not exist.” These pages are not crawled externally and therefore do not affecting public-facing search results.

Please also see “What if I’ve submitted an update directly through Factual and now need to re-submit through a TDC? What will happen?”

Any data that is submitted to Factual through a TDC will be considered a highly ranked, authoritative source and will override any former submissions.

Please also see “What if I’ve submitted an update directly through Factual and I haven’t seen it reflected?”
