What are the Types of Google My Business Photos?

Google My Business, now known as Google Business Profile, allows businesses to upload various photos to provide customers with a virtual tour of their business. As of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, here are the types of photos you can upload:

1. **Profile Photo:** This represents your business on Google. It can be a logo or an image that customers associate with your business. This Photo will be shown when you reply to reviews or post new photos.

2. **Cover Photo:** This featured Photo represents your business. It should showcase the personality of your business.

3. **Business Photos:** Include additional photos of your business, services, products, etc. They can show the inside and outside of your business, the staff at work, customers at your location, etc.

4. **Logo:** If you have a well-recognized logo, you can add it. This would appear at the top of your Google Business Profile.

5. **360 Photos:** If applicable, you can provide a virtual tour of your business or show off your business location’s layout, decor, and ambiance with 360-degree photos.

6. **Videos:** You can also upload short videos to your Google Business Profile to give potential customers a richer view of your business.

Each photo type helps provide potential customers with more context about your business. The more high-quality photos you can provide, the better, as it helps customers feel more confident in their decision to patronize your business.

Please note Google may have updated the types of photos you can upload to your Google Business Profile after my knowledge cutoff in September 2021. Always check the most recent guidelines provided by Google.

Yes, as of my knowledge cutoff in September 2021, you can delete photos uploaded to your Google Business Profile (formerly known as Google My Business). Here’s how:

1. **Sign In to Google My Business:** First, sign in to your Google My Business account. If you have multiple locations, select the location you wish to manage.

Also, remember that changes may take time to reflect. Google may need some time to process the request.
