1000+ location Photo Uploads

We have 1000+ locations and struggling with Photo Uploads. Does anyone have a recommended photo upload site that GMB will approve a photo URL coming from? I've tried my website URL but the photos do not match the size requirements and I've tried uploading to my Google drive and sharing the URL link to each individual photo.

Hi @World F

 

Hopefully someone from bulk management jumps in, but the question remains that if you don't have the size requirement on site, why would you have size requirement on another site.

 

I am guessing that the images should only come from your site.

You should be able to bulk upload via spreadsheet or API.

Hi @Eoghan G

 

Yes, bulk locations is managed with a spreadsheet, you still have to use an acceptable URL for the images.

 

See a sample bulk location management spreadsheet

Hi,

Yes I've tried: Enter the URLs for your photos in the corresponding photo columns in your spreadsheet:

However it doesn't not accept the URL's that I'm posting as photo options. Any advice? Or guidance for a URL.

Understood. A lot of our clients host the images on their own domains in some sort of live asset library and others share the file with us and we generate our own url from it.

 

If above isn't possible for you, hosting your photos on Google Photos may be a good place to store them! You can upload stock images there for free and then you're passing GMB a Google generated and hosted URL.
