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.
