The 'What's New' post type

This is the simplest type of Google My Business post. Simply enter your post copy and add 1 image, video, or gif. You may add a button if you wish.

Warning Callout Icon

Warning: To use the `Call now` button on your What's New post, please ensure you have a telephone number associated with your connected Location.

Why has my Google My Business post failed?

1. Are you using the recommended image ratio?

We recommenced using a 16:9 image size ratio (1200 x 675 pixels for example)

2. Is your image a photograph?

Google My Business favors photography-based images (such as places, people, products), instead of text-based images. Please ensure your images have as little text as possible.

3. Is your Location verified?

In order to post to Google My Business, your Location must first be verified by Google. You can check the verification of your Location(s) here: https://business.google.com/manage

If you are posting via a Business Account that has 10 or more Locations, you will need to request bulk verification to ensure your posts will be published.
