12 Oct Google Posts Now Live With 3VS Local Listings SEO Plans
Get Google Posts Directly from 3VS Local Listings
This summer, Google My Business rolled out a new feature to help small businesses (those with fewer than 10 locations) attract more attention in search by creating and publishing posts from the Google My Business dashboard.
Starting today, our business customers with 3VS Local Listings (select plans) will now be able to post on Google Posts. These text and image posts display within the Knowledge Card when people search for your business. Knowledge Cards appear for 1 in 5 Google Searches. They display prominently at the top of mobile results and on the right-rail of desktop results. This functionality will be extended to small businesses with our Reviews & Social Media package and above.
With 3VS Local Listings, you’ll be able to publish Google Posts using the most up-to-date knowledge in your organization and examine GMB Analytics data on Post Views, Photo insights, and Customer Actions — all from one centralized platform.
