Add photos or videos to your Business Profile

Manage your business

Your photos won’t show on Google until you verify your business.

Types of photos

There are several types of photos that you can add to your Business Profile:

  • Logo: Help your customers recognise your business on Google. For businesses that have their basic information, such as a phone number or hours of operation, the Business Profile highlights the logo.
  • Cover photo: Set a cover photo at the top of your profile that best represents your business. In some instances, this action doesn’t guarantee the cover photo will show up as the first image for your business.
  • Business photos: Add different photos to highlight features of your business to attract and inform customers. Learn more about business photos.
