Business Profile photos & videos policy and posts content policy

You can use your Business Profile to directly communicate relevant and timely information to your customers. Our prohibited & restricted content policies help make sure any content you submit (including any text, photos or videos) creates a positive experience for customers. 

Business Profile Photos & videos policy

Our prohibited and restricted content policies apply to your submitted or published photos and videos. Photos and videos must also meet additional criteria.

You're also responsible for your posted imagery to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

Business Profile posts content policy

You're responsible for making sure that your posted content complies with all applicable laws and regulations.

We occasionally modify these policies, so please check back here for any updates. We'll provide notice of such changes if required by applicable law.

Avoid "phone stuffing"

To avoid the risk of abuse, we do not allow your post content to include a phone number. 

Instead, you can attach a "Call now" button to your post that uses your verified Business Profile phone number.

Hotel posts

  • Hotel businesses can create local posts to provide relevant, timely info to customers. 
  • Hotels can’t create “offer” posts, or any post that mentions or includes links to deals, promotions, special offers, or discounts. This ensures that customers don’t get confused about where to navigate on the hotel placesheet to find organic and ad prices.
