Photos uploaded to my GMB are showing up in my Google Posts distracting from the content 1 Recommended Answer 17 Replies 34 Upvotes

Phots that I've uploaded to GMB also show up in my google posts... this distracts from the post content that I've actually created and makes the posts seem unprofessional. Also, I've noticed many of the phots Ive uploaded to GMB do not show up for customers to view... when logged into my GMB they show in my photos to manage but when you search my business and view photos they are not there... I've checked "latest Photos" "owner" and nothing. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

regarding  such photos  being listed in your tab "Photos"  of your dashboard but not publicly listed  please  contact  Business Support.
They  should  be  able  to fix this  issue.

Regarding posts  showing photos  you  did  not  put  your self  into the post : this  shouldn't happen.

Do  you  see  in the  tab "Post"  any  plain  text  posts  and such post  get  shown to the public  with photos???

Or  did I misunderstand this  part of your  issue.
Feel free  then to elaborate  it  more  (linking such post coming  with photos  despite  of  not  having  attache  photos  to the  post.

EDITED:
Supplement  Chris:

Just read  a long sermon  of an  other  user and this user also spoke  about unwanted  photos  getting  published  with posts (not  providing   yet any  proof an evidence about this matter)

Therefore I consider it worth and important to get  your matter  escalated  to Google  and  I'm offering  to do  this  as soon I have better and concrete  facts  of any of your posts  created  by you  without photos  but  visible  for the public  WITH  any previously uploaded  photos which are not related  to the  post in question.

Thanks in advance  for according facts

Thanks for your reply... as for the posts new photos that have been uploaded to the GMB have unwantedly created new posts specific for the photos which is weird. See link below...  there are random business photos mixed in with the actual posts that have been created for my business. I have noticed that these sometimes disappear but have taken screenshots to show it's happening if necessary. Appreciate your help with this.

Hello  Chris Fletcher
thanks  so much  for  the link "GMB Web


it shows  me here at the left side all  the photos as  actually  visible  to the public
first question
Are  this  all photos  uploaded  by you to (and visible  for  you in)  your tab "Photos"  of your  GMB dashboard for  listing  in question  - as it is  https://www.google.com/maps?cid=1706434567705294209  
or  do you  have any  additional photos  uploaded and visible  for you under  the  tab "Photos"  of your  GMB dashboard HOWEVER  NOT  VISIBLE    here at the left side?

Second  question: 
I  see  few of your  recent  posts of the Month  December and link them  here in the order of their  publishing  date:

All  post  come with  photos and come  with text  as well and  at least  the  text  seems  for  me created  by  you.
Which posts  of them  are visible  in the tab "Posts"  of your  GMB dashboard without  photos  specified/attached  to the  posted  text   the  listing 
Asking other  way which  of the  above  linkend post  are unwantedly created new posts 
(means: which of them are  unwantedly created by  Google)?

Can you  please  specify this  and  if ever possible by screenshots  showing  such post  of the  tab  "posts" in your dashboard unwantedly created be  Google?


Note: I  need  the  requested Info  in order  to escalate the  issue  to Googles  GMB team as I plan  to do.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Helmut Geissler... thanks for looking into this. 

For the photos there are many that are visible to me in the GMB dashboard that are not visible in the left side visible to the public. I have messaged support about this a few times but have not heard back.

As for the posts the issue is "unwanted posts"... if I create a post with text and photo everything is fine. However, I've noticed that when new photos of the business are uploaded by me to the GMB dashboard once they become visible to the public (in the left side as you mentioned above) these photos are then also added to the "posts" section of our gmb by google see below screenshots.

Below the left photo of yoga mats is not a post created by me it is a photo uploaded to photos and then google created a post... the tree is an actual post created by me




Below the appliance photo is a post created by google with a photo that was uploaded to photos.... the xmas vid is a post created by me



Below all three of these were photos uploaded to photos but now also show up in posts as created by google

I noticed this several weeks ago and when I started asking around, everyone told me they had no idea what I was talking about. Primarily because I don't simply check my accounts in the dashboard, but also check them from a customers point of view. These don't show up in your dashboard. I was seeing them, but others were only checking in the dashboard and not seeing anything.

Personally, I really don't like them. Posts are for things the business wants to highlight. Photos are often uploaded to simply give customers more of an up close look at areas of the business and aren't necessarily appropriate for a post, especially if there is no text with it.  When Google is not allowing you to edit or delete the post or even see it in the dashboard, it's a bit bizarre.  

I'm hoping that they make changes to this feature or just do away with it.  I have to now look at when I add photos and make sure to add a post a little while after any photos so the post I want shows up as the most recent.

It's also frustrating that when I reached out to Google, it took days of back and forth for them to acknowledge it was a new feature and not a bug.
