Post on Google as a local business

Manage your business

Important: If you're not a local business (one that serves customers at a particular location or within a designated service area), consider looking into Posts on Google for verified entities. Learn more about Posts on Google.

You can publish your offers, events, products and services directly to Google Search and maps by posting through Google My Business.

Before creating your first post:

  • Make sure that it’s high quality: Low quality text, including misspellings, gimmicky characters, gibberish, automated or distracting content, won’t be helpful for customers.
  • Keep your posts respectful: Refrain from using obscene, profane or offensive language, images or videos.
  • Only post links to websites that 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.
