Add Google My Business to the Social Media Block

It would be nice to add Google my business link to social account. First thing people notice how we post on Google than anything else. Google has algorithm to have show up in search. So I feel we are lacking one of the biggest tools and have to post manually there.

Thanks for the idea @KuljeetN. I'll open this up for voting.

It is sort of ridiculous this isn't included. The help article to connecting Google my business indicates going to the Website and Stores tab and that there is a google my business option. But there isn't. It's gone. This is the most important social feature for a small business and I may cancel without it

Hello, 

 

Are there any plans to add Google My Business as a network within the Social under Build? (Please see attachments)

 

I know there is a way to link Google My Business under the Websites & Stores section, but I think it would be valuable to have the option to link under the social field. Appreciate your help!

I would really appreciate this feature as well. It is very important for SEO to be posting on the google business page.

It would be great to have GMB added to the social media platform as an option.

Yes, and it would be nice to be able to add the "learn more" button. I still use the GMB platform for posts that use that feature.

I use GMB's "learn more" quite a bit to point users to a website, etc. This would be a great addition.

Are you looking for Google My Business to be added into our social sharing integration along with the learn more button?

Actually, I just saw your other post. I think this is for a Google My Business button that can be added into the Email editor with the rest of the social links? 

 

Within an email you should be able to drag in a button element to direct to another website and you can customize the button to say "Learn More" - does that work? I don't know if that part is particularly related to Google My Business or not, or if that was just used for the sake of example.

Hi all - This is fixed in our new cross platform editor. It will be listed under Add Network in the Social Follow block, along with other networks. Appreciate all the feedback on this one!2022-10-07 13_09_00-Window.png
