Local businesses can now post on Google with Posts on Google

Until now, Posts on Google only permitted a small number of celebrities, athletics squads, sports leagues, movie studios and museums to post social network-style updates about specific activities right to Googles search result pages. Use this, these organizations and individuals could post images, videos, GIFs and text and use that to drive traffic to their sites.

Starting now, local businesses can also use this featureto publish their events, product and services( or merely a photo of a nice cupcake) to Google Search and Maps.

Google tells local businesses can use this new feature to, for example, share daily specials and current promotions, to promote events and showcase new products. Whats maybe even more important for these industries, though, is that they can connect these posts to their own sites and use Posts on Google to drive sign-ups for their newsletters or get potential customers to specific product pages.

Businesses can create these posts on the web and in the Google My Business Android and iOS apps.

Google first experimented with this feature during the last U.S. election. Since then, it gradually opened the service up to more users. The most recent launching was in Brazil, where musicians can now post updates, too. While this feature may feel like a nascent rebirth of Googles social networking endeavours, the scheme here is clearly not to bring back Google+ but to allow businesses to publish more timely datum for their customers.
