Google My Business Spreadsheet Upload Process Updated

Feb 17, 2016 • 7:38 am | comments (0) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Maps

Google has quietly updated the process for uploading your spreadsheet to the Google My Business console. The main new thing is that you no longer have to review the changes after you upload your spreadsheet.

Google said on this help page:

As of February 2016, we’ve made some changes to Google updates:

  • You no longer need to resolve Google updates to finish importing locations via spreadsheet. If you’d like to discard Google updates in bulk, you can now do so from your list of locations.
  • If you import a spreadsheet and you haven't changed a particular field since your last upload, Google My Business will ignore that field. We won't change your data, and we won’t accept or discard Google updates for that field.
  • If you import a spreadsheet and you have changed a field, we'll accept the new field value and overwrite both your old value and any Google update associated with it.

These changes should make it faster for larger businesses to maintain their Google My Business listings.
