Your photos won’t show on Google until you verify your business.
There are several types of photos you can add to your business listing:
- Logo: Help your customers recognize your business on Google. For businesses that have their basic information (phone number, hours, etc.), the Business Profile will highlight the logo.
- Cover photo: Set a cover photo to the top of the profile that best represents your business. In some instances, this action doesn’t guarantee the cover photo populates as the first image for your business.
- Additional photos: Add different photos to highlight features of your business that customers consider when making purchasing decisions. Learn more about business photos.
You also can add photos of the storefront, products, and services to provide more information about your business. It’s also a good idea to add an exterior photo so people can recognize your business when they visit.
After you choose the photos or videos you want to add to your Google My Business listing, make sure of the following:
- Photos and videos follow our content policies
- Photos are in either JPG or PNG format
- Photos are the correct size
- Videos follow our guidelines
Businesses with 10 or more locations can upload photos via spreadsheet.
