Google Posts now live for all Google My Business users
After much anticipation, Google Posts is finally available to all small businesses. The content will appear in both Google search and maps results.
Google Posts is now rolling out to all small businesses that use the Google My Business (GMB) platform.
Google just announced the rollout late this afternoon. A couple of weeks ago, the company moved Google Posts into GMB, and that is where you can access it now — on both the desktop and the Google My Business Android and iOS apps.
Go to your GMB account and click on “Posts” on the left-side menu when you are in your Google business listing.
Google says this give businesses the ability to:
share daily specials or current promotions that encourage new and existing customers to take advantage of your offers.
promote events and tell customers about upcoming happenings at your location.
showcase your top products and highlight new arrivals.
choose one of the available options to connect with your customers directly from your Google listing: give them a one-click path to make a reservation, sign up for a newsletter, learn more about latest offers, or even buy a specific product from your website.
Posts will show up in both Google search and maps results. Here are examples of how Google Posts come up in search:
