Google: Photos Are Missing From Your Listing On Google

Tim Coling reported in the Local Search Forums that his client received an email asking them to load up more photos on their Google local listing. It said "Photos are missing from your [company name] listing on Google."

The company had many photos of their listings, so it was unusual to see such an email sent to the business he said. Truth is, I never remembered hearing of Google emailing business owners to add more photos.

One of my clients just received an email from Google with the subject line, "Photos are missing from your [company name] listing on Google". The client forwarded it to me, and it turns out that while every one of their locations in GMB has photos, Google is now prodding them to enter many more photos in several categories:

Interior photos Add at least 3 great interior photos to show customers what your business feels like inside.

Exterior photos Add at least 3 great exterior photos to help customers recognize your business.

Photos at work Add at least 3 photos that are representative of the services you offer.

Team photos Add at least 3 photos showing your management team and your employees.

Additional photos Add additional photos of your business that don't fit in any of the other categories.

Is this a sign of some new initiative from Google? It's going to annoy my clients and they're going to wonder whether I have overlooked doing something for them. Sheesh!

I have not seen other reports of this and I've been checking for them over the past five days or so.
