Can't Post In GMB

Hi everyone.

Several weeks ago GMB Popped up telling me I could now add posts. Great - I added a post and there is was.

But I've tried to add a new post today from my GMB account but I don;t see the POST link on the Desktop or Mobile App.

Do I need to change a setting some? Or am I just being stupid and not finding.

Any help gratefully received.

Hi @Roda Golf P

 

Since your business belongs to the group of lodging categories I'm afraid you can't post indeed.

At the very beginning of the launched posting feature Google didn't avoid such posts for "lodgers".

But they deprecated it shortly after launching for all lodger categories.

Thanks to @Selina C for her correct hint.

Hello, exactly the same happened to us. Around 15.07.17 the post function disappeared from our GMB Account. I have a supspicion the reason could be the company category "Apartment Rental Agency". I've read in other posts that posts are not available for the category "hotel" but I couldn't find any information if this also applies to apartment rental agency. Would be nice to get an official answer from Google.

Our company: https://www.google.com/maps/place/e-domizil+AG/@47.3621307,8.5123898,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xb8500...

Thanks @Helmut Geissler and @Selina C.

I had a suspicion that this was probably the case.

I'd love to know what Google has against apartment rental agencies?

Hello, 

 

Just to be clear - 

 

Is it true that "hotel" businesses are not able to post? 

 

I am not able to see the post option within my dashboard. 

 

Thank you.

To be precise:

The GMB posting feature is not available for all kind of "lodging" categories.

i.e. Hotel.hostel B&B RV parks etc.
