Here’s Why Your Google Business Profile Posts Might Be Getting Rejected
As a salon owner, you rely heavily on your Google Business Profile to reach potential clients and promote your beauty business. One way to increase this reach is by creating a Post within your profile, which can be in the form of a text, photo, or video and usually indicates an update, offer, or event.
However, getting your posts removed or flagged by Google can be a major setback in your marketing efforts (on top of being incredibly frustrating) and can lead to a loss of online visibility.
To avoid this, here are some tips to keep in mind:
Follow Google’s Guidelines
Google has strict guidelines for what can and cannot be posted on a Business Profile. Foremost, make sure you’re familiar with these guidelines and adhere to them to avoid any issues. You can read more about Google’s posting guidelines here.
Don’t Be Spammy
Google is not a fan of spam content. Anything using overly promotional language will be flagged due to its “spammy” nature. Also, avoid using links (buying/selling) with the intent of manipulating your salon’s online rankings.
No Copyrighted Content
Before posting any videos or images, make sure you have the necessary rights to use the content.
Don’t Post Misleading Information
Avoid advertising false offers or misleading prices. Doing so can harm your salon’s reputation and lead to the removal or flagging of your posts.
Keep It Professional:
Above all, your Google Business Profile is a representation of your business, so make sure your posts are professional and align with your brand’s image.
