Agency Actions: Google My Business Posts

Google has turned on a very powerful feature for your Google My Business listing.

 

You can now create posts that will show up in your Google Knowledge Panel that populates your Google Search & Google Maps listing with events, action buttons, general informational posts and photos. This will reshape your organic presence greatly and something you will want to put to use for yourself and your clients. 

 

Please keep in mind that this is not Google+ but Google My Business. Google+ is a separate system from Google My Business and posts made on your Google+ pages are only visible to those connected to your page, whereas the Google My Business posts will be visible to all that see your Google Search and Google Maps listing. How cool is that? 

 

If you are ready to put this to work for you, please use these instructions to do so. You can even make posts using the Google My Business Android and iOS apps, if you prefer.

 

If you’re not yet using Google My Business, sign up now and get started managing your business listing on Google. Once you’ve verified your business, you’ll be connected to more prospective customers and you'll be ready to make your Google My Business posts.

 

Please let us know what you think about this feature and share any tips or tricks you discover.

 

Best wishes on your unique journey,

 

James

I have been checking my accounts daily since the news about this "Posts" feature, but I'm still not seeing the ability to do so. All locations are verified and I've been managing these locations for years now. Any help as to how to get these made available would be much appreciated.

If you’re not seeing the Posts section on your business page, it might be because it has not been launched to all business categories. Hotels and B&Bs are two categories where local posts are not available (yet). If you’re not in this category and still don’t have local posts, fill out the request form at https://goo.gl/forms/Zl5OM4tl5ZK5yOdM2. Kind Regards, James
