Now is a good time to update your Google Place to let your customers know if your services have changed due to COVID-19. Google Places for Business are those extra search results that appear on a Google map when you do any Google search.
You can update your customers by creating a "post" for the Google Place. On mobile devices, you can read the posts from the update tab at the top of the Google Place listing. On desktop browsers, you can see the posts below the reviews panel. Certainly, the posts are more visible on mobile browsers, but recent data show that 63% of searches are now done on mobile in the United States.Read More.
How to add a post
To add a post, login to your google account and open https://business.google.com. Click on your business and then choose the Post option in the left side panel. Click the "COVID-19 update" button to create a new post that tells how you are adjusting to the COVID-19 restrictions. Be sure to add one of the button options such as " learn more", "order online", or " call now" to give your post a call to action. Although Google, like the rest of the country, is now in slow mode, updates identified as COVID-19 are given high priority and will be processed quickly.
On some Google Place listings, there is a "manage this listing" link directly on the listing. Clicking this link will prompt you to login to your Google account and take you directly to the same management page..
