Google Posts

Last night, as I covered at SEL, Google Posts went live to all businesses verified within Google My Business.

Google Posts are an instant way to post a message to your customers and prospects in your Google Local business listing in Google Search. Here is a message I just posted minutes ago:

See the photo of my team, the message and the learn more button, that is the Google Posts part. I was able to inject that into the Google search results within seconds.

How, go to Google My Business and click on your listings. Then on the left side there is a "Posts" button in the navigation which takes you here:

click for full size

Then click on the add post and you can fill out a form with a photo, description, a call to action button and even add an event date/time. This is what I wrote:

Google My Business Posts Form

Then, you can preview it:

Google My Business Posts Preview

After you click publish, it adds it to the log of Google Posts in your business:

Google My Business Posts Done

And of course, posts it in the Google search results immediately.

Please don't abuse this and make Google take away this feature from businesses.
