Miscellaneous questions

The maps shows wrong location. Why ?

99% of cases happens because of incorrect or incomplete address listed on company profile.

1% of cases - incorrect interpretation of your address by Google Maps geocoding software.

Because we do not host map images the whole process of showing you the map looks like this:

1) you look at a company profile

2) we send a query to Google Maps:
"Show me the map for address `street 123, New York, USA` "

3) you see the map provided by Google Maps web service

So there is no way we can manually control how the map is shown on your company profile. We cannot place map marker 30 pixels right or 2 streets left. The map shown depends only on the address provided and on Google Maps software.

I am trying to contact this company with the information showed on its profile but I never get answer from this company. Could you give some other information or what is the situation with this company ?

Some companies change their phone numbers or addresses, some change their names or even go bankrupt. These changes are not necessarily visible on company website. We can only track changes visible on a company website. So we cannot really help you if no one answers your calls. However we usually remove profiles of such companies after we receive reports from users facing similar problems.

I see some inappropriate content on a company profile. What should i do ?

Please email us at support@akama.com. Your report will be reviewed and required actions taken.

I have a company named "Acme Rocket-Powered Products, Inc.". There is another company listing on your website with the same name but different website. It is a fake ! Please remove it.

We cannot verify whether the listing is fake or not. We only check if company name and address found on company website matches name and address on our pages. You should contact your lawyer or domain name registrar if you think someone is using fake business name.
