My Business Locations - What are labels for and what are the rules?

Hi, just wondering what the rules are regarding the labels for Google My Business (Location).

For example, are they allowed to contain key words, can they be repeated, are they allowed to contain the name of a location?

Thanks!

@Nirbhay N

 

store codes are irrelevant for individual listings.

They appley in Bulk Feed submitted stuff only (Companies with tem or more locations)

I still don't understand exactly what the labels are used for and what they do? Can I get an example of labels on a business and then how they work, where they show up, what they are best used for?

Hi @Jen

In a word - organisation.  

 

If you only have one location, they're not needed.  If you have 1000, then you would likely make use of labels.

The link Colan provided does give good information.

Labels let you organize your locations into groups. You can search for locations by label from the dashboard, and use labels to filter location extensions in AdWords.

Assign up to 10 unique labels to each location. Labels can be up to 50 characters long and should not include invalid characters (i.e. < or >).

To include commas in the label name, use the string "%2c" in your spreadsheet. For example, “1%2c000+ Daily Visitors” would create the label “1,000+ Daily Visitors”.

When you search for a label in the search box, the results will include all locations that contain that label as well as locations that contain your search text in a different field. For example:

Location 1 has label “West coast”. Location 2 has label “East coast” and has address line 1 “123 West Ave”. Typing “west” in the search box will return both locations.
