Recently, there was a new feature from Google on GMB known as “Posts”. Though this feature is not accessible to all business category but available to few business categories which has verified GMB listing.
News was confirmed by the Community Manager for Google My Business, by Marissa Nordahl… However, Post has not been launched to all business categories.
Nordahl specified that local posts are not yet available to all businesses in the “Hotels” categories. However, there may still be business in other categories that were not included in the initial launch.
Statement by Nordahl:
“Gratitude for all those positive responses about this launch – we’re excited equally and would definitely want to get you posting..! If you are unable to see the Posts section on your business page, it may be because we haven’t launched to all business firms.”
“Hotels” is the group where local posts are not available yet.”
Access is not guaranteed after submitting the form, but Nordahl says the company will do its best to help out. A response can be expected within 2-3 business days after submitting your Maps URL.
Google Posts are not available to all business… Yet…! It is obvious that the feature is not offered to all business firms. According to an announcement by Google, it has stated that Posts was rolling out worldwide to all business with verified GMB listing. You directly can’t publish local posts from Google My Business, you can request access by submitting your Google Maps URL, but the access is not confirmed. Marissa Nordahl- community manager says the company will do its best to help out.
