When Google Maps Shows Embarrassing Business Photos Over Your Photos

There was a post on Twitter that caught my eye and I wanted to share it with you all:

Yes, and it still shows today for the brand name on Google - [the comfort authority].

Google Maps Bad Company Photos

What the heck is that anyway?

In any event, this is a reality for many businesses. Why not let the business owner select which photos they want featured in their Google local panel or Google Maps listing?

For years, the primary photo for my business on Google Maps was of me wearing Google Glass. I uploaded many other photos to promote and better represent the company, as opposed to me wearing Google Glass but it wasn't until maybe a few months ago, after years of showing my face, that Google for some reason decided to show a different photo. That photo is still there, it is just number two, instead number one.

Darren Shaw also shared this tweet:

Why can't Google make it easier for business owners to control these photos? I don't understand it to be honest.
