A Shortcut To Uploading Photos To Your Google Maps Business Listing

Feb 15, 2013 • 8:19 am | comments (11) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Maps

Google+ Local LogoJade Wang from Google gave a tip in a Google Business Help thread on how to expedite the uploading and listing of photos on your Google Business Maps listing page.

Typically, a business owner would upload photos through managing their page within Google+ or via Google Places. But that process can take a month for the photos to be approved and visible within Google's search results and Google Maps.

Instead, Jade said you can take a "shortcut" by uploading the photos by going to the Photos tab of the Google+ Local listing.

She said the photos should be visible "almost immediately."

So if you want to get photos to show up right away, that is the way to go.

Things like this always confuse me: the 'official' method takes a long time...so someone from Google endorses using an 'almost instant' workaround... ...so why isn't the workaround the official method?

And then reposting them on your own site with a few minor changes to make them look like your own, eh Greg? Yesterday me, the day before that Rand Fishkin, now Barry. Not too surprised between yesterday and today you stopped taking comments on your "posts."

I enjoy rehashing post - providing the information on my personal platform - for my readers...And I don't see a problem with that. Any time I provide a post whereas I quote someone, credit is always given. Please stop stalking me!

btw : Comments have never been disabled on any of my post, I switched from commentluv to disquss yesterday eavening.. Nothing more, Mark! You'll never see me provide anything less than 100% original content. Always have, always will. None of my 6 sites was penalized during any Google update. Never have used anything less than evergreen techniques. I've never had a customer to complain either. I would appreciate it if you'd find something better to do.

It is the right thing to link to where you found the information. I always do that.

Barry, this guy only covers his tracks when he gets caught. And then it's always "oh I forgot" or "it was a mistake." No need to thank him. He's a low life scraper who gives SEO a bad name.

I'm sorry, Barry that this other conversation had to take place on your blog, Mark met me 2 days ago on Google+ after he disagreed with how I used his name in an article I wrote. You're already aware of some of the content I create , which has a controversial intent, and well...Mark has obviously gotten his panties into a wad. Sorry about this. Comments are open on my site, and he's aware of that. Once again...I apologize.
