I recently submitted information to TeleAtlas and they told me it was accepted and has been added.

When I search on Google Maps the address still does not appear.

Does anyone know how long Google Maps take to update with new information or it just a matter of TeleAtlas making the data available for Google?

Are you sure that TeleAtlas provide the map data to Google in your area? in the UK and the US Google use their own data. – iant Jul 11 '12 at 11:07
When I'm over my town, Google Maps has this on the bottom right. Imagery (C)2012 DigitalGlobe, GeoEye, Mao data (C)2012 Tele Atlas – PriestVallon Jul 11 '12 at 11:09
In an e-mail from TeleAtlas they said "We were able to use your input to improve our maps. This update will go out in our next release of our map database." – PriestVallon Jul 11 '12 at 12:34
It can range from the 6 months teleAtlas cycle to when ever google do a re-tile of all 17 maptile levels (approx 18-24 months). Satellite and Aerial Images are updated one week after Google Earth - monthly, 3 monthly cycle (but localised areas only). – Mapperz Jul 11 '12 at 14:02
