The wrong photo shows on Brio Media search and map results but I want it to be our business logo!

For some reason, I'm uploading my businesses logo to Google My Business but in search results it shows the cover image instead of the logo! How can I fix this?

Hi @Alex R

 

I've noticed Google seems to prefer a photo over a logo style image in that spot and will sometimes override your choice when that's the case. I would try maybe overlaying your logo on an image or some sort of combination of logo image and seeing if it will stick.

 

I don't think it necessarily needs to be a photo, but I think what you're trying to put there now might be too plain. You could try making a graphic with the company name and the robot guy you have on your facebook page. Something a little busier like that might work. You'll just have to experiment a little and see what Google will be good with.

Google doesn't "like" logos for the profile photo and if they find either yours or a user submitted photo that they prefer that is what they will show.
