1) Mr. Plumber

2) 601 E Preston Glen Ln, Gunter, TX, US

3) (903) 868-3800

4) https://plus.google.com/b/115205846180265824384/115205846180265824384

 

I have added a profile and cover photo for this business, as well as a few alternate versions. How can I choose which image shows up in the Google Maps listing here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Mr.+Plumber/@33.4118161,-96.7498356,11z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1splumbe...

 

Also, how can I delete images from the list of ones I have uploaded?

Hi Jay,

There's no way to guarantee that a certain photo will display. One of the best things you can do to try and have some control is to select your primary photo in the GMB dashboard.

Hi Colan,

I've been searching and searching but can't find this screen to edit identity photos for my Google+ page. Can you give some more screenshots or a step by step to the location? I'm using the new G+ version (I can't find a way to revert back to classic).

Many thanks!
Joanna
