Part 2: How to Rank on Google Using Pictures


In Part 1, we discussed why uploading pictures to your Google My Business account is so important for ranking on Google. We also discussed the 3 criteria your pictures must meet in order to get MAX results. Remember, it’s all about being REAL.

In Part 2, we will discover an easy step-by-step system for actually getting those pictures up on your Google My Business account.

In the “old days” you had to take some pictures, transfer them to your computer, remember your Google My Business username and password, and then figure out how to upload them from your computer.

Google has actually made this process extremely easy, even for the non-techy types. The only requirement is a Smartphone and about a minute per week.

Here is how you do it:

Step 1: Pull out your Smartphone and search your app store for the Google My Business App and download it. The first time you open the app you will have to login with your Google My Business email and password. You only have to do this one time.

Step 2: Once per week whip out your phone and snap a few photos. Refer to Part 1 on the types of photos you should take.

Step 3: Open up the Google My Business App and scroll down to the section that says Post photos from your device. Put a check mark next to the photos you took that day. Tap “Post Photos”. That’s it, move on with your day and wait for Google to boost your rankings.

The hardest part is remembering to do this. I recommend setting a specific day per week like Monday. Make the decision to take a picture or two every Monday. It really is that easy and it really will make a difference. Do it!
