Hi @Dr M I D

 

online running businesses are not eligible fora GMB listing at all.

You are eligible only in case you meet your clients "in Person" (note: skyping or chatting doesn't count as contact in person)

In case meet your clients in person you could consider creating a service area bsuiness with hidden address

Well let me explain some more... I also do retreats here and seminars, and even consultations, but I still don't want my address to be public so anyone can turn up anytime without booking - because I live here - this is for security reasons

Just repeating my advise:

"In case you meet your clients in person you could consider creating a service area business with hidden address"

​Elmut thank you for this, any chance you could give me the step by step to
achieve this?

Also, and since you are so knowledgeable,
​could you help me with understanding (and correcting) why
the pictures I add to my 'at work' or 'overview' take precedence over the
'cover', 'profile' or 'logo' and show on the page below when I have already
selected the picture (picture of one of my books) to show on that page.

@Dr M I D

Not sure what other "step by step" info you need.

The linked HC article described as how a service area is to specify 

 

if this is done you need below of the service area specification to uncheck the little box "I also serve my customers at my business address" asthis will hide your previously specified home address to the public (despite of the fact you need to specify the address in your dahsboard)

 

Regarding photos I'm not  a big help and It seems Googles photo related algos do and decide what they like to do and decide showing very often photos not preferred by the business owner.
