Once you have your GMB account set-up and the verification postcard is on it’s way, or if you’re already verified (You’ll see the blue check mark), you can post pictures, links to videos, promotions, blog posts, you name it!
Click on Posts on the left menu.
What’s really cool is you can add a Call-to-Action (CTA) button.
Here’s what the Google My Business Posts look like:
Just like Google+, it’s connected to the Google search engine. Everything posted gets indexed in the search engine!
It’s new and it doesn’t connect to YouTube. (YouTube still has to connect to a Google+ page.)
A home-based or e-commerce business cannot be “verified” — that’s only for businesses with locations on Google Maps. You need to use Google+ and use it to get Google to notice you with blogging.
