How to make a post & track its status for your Business Profile

Manage your business

You can publish your offers, events, products, and services directly to Google Search and Maps through posts on Business Profile Manager.

Tips for your post

Important: Posts that include a phone number in the post description may be rejected.

  • Make sure it’s high quality: Avoid misspellings, gimmicky characters, gibberish, and automated or distracting content.
  • Keep your posts respectful: Refrain from obscene, profane, or offensive language, images, or videos.
  • Only post links to websites you trust: Links that lead to malware, viruses, phishing, or pornographic material aren’t allowed.
  • Regulated goods and services: If you offer products or services in an industry that is regulated, you’re allowed to use posts but you can’t post content related to the products themselves. Regulated industries usually include adult services, alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical products, recreational drugs, health & medical devices, gambling-related services, fireworks, weapons, and financial services.
  • Keep your posts family-friendly: Refrain from posting sexually suggestive or explicit content.
