Believe it or not, but your business photos play a role in your local search rankings. If you find yourself not ranking as well as you’d like to in the Google search results, it’s probably you don’t have a complete Google My Business profile. Profiles that are complete and full of geo-tagged photos perform better than those that do not.
When you log into your Google My Business profile and navigate to Manage Photos, you’ll see that there are 6 different image sections – identity photos, interior photos, exterior, photos at work, team photos, and additional photos. We recommend uploading between 3-5 in each section. Make sure you geo-tag these images before putting them on your profile.
First, it’s important that you save the photos on your computer with appropriate titles. This will Google what the photo is about. Lots of people make this mistake and knowing/implementing this will set you above your competitors.
For example, img533232.jpg vs Dr-Smith-at-work.jpg
To rename a photo, all you’ve got to do is right click on the image and select Rename. Once you’ve done that, it’s time for you to geo-tag them. Follow this process:
