Add photos or videos to business listings

Manage your business

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

Types of photos

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.

Add photos or videos

You also can add photos of staff, 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.
