Approved pokestop not appearing

will a pokestop be approved if the location is too close to an already existing pokestop? I had one approved last week but it has not shown up yet.

    Each game has a proximity rule that determines whether a new wayspot is able to be added to that game or not. If you want to read up more on the system that Pokémon Go uses, Pokémon Go Hub has an in depth guide to how Pokémon Go uses S2 Cells and you can search for that guide to find more.

    In short though, Pokémon Go divides the map into an invisible grid of level 17 S2 Cells, and each level 17 S2 Cell can only contain a maximum of one Pokéstop or Gym. If it's been more than 48 hours and it hasn't appeared yet, then the likely reason is that it's in an already occupied cell. If it's been less than 48 hours, you need to wait, as sync only happens once per day.
