Add Videos To Your Google Local Business Profile

Stephen Espinosa notes that you can now add videos to your Google Local Business Center profile. Beforehand, to get a video to show up in your profile, you had to somewhat get lucky. Now, you can add them manually.

This is a great way to add customer video testimonials, product demos, commercials, and more to your Google Maps listing.

Here is a walk through on how to add videos to your Google Local Business profile.

Step 1: Go and edit your current verified Google Local Business Center profile.

Step 2: Go to the “photos” tab:

Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the form and look for the video section:

Step 4: Find a YouTube video and copy and paste the URL into the field and click “add video.”

Step 5: Repeat Step 4 up to five times and you will begin to see videos show up under the “add video” box:

The videos should then show up in Google Maps when someone clicks on “more info” for that business. All you will need to do is click on “Photos & Videos” to see them:

Hat tip to Mike Blumenthal for spotting this.

Postscript: Sometime within the hour of adding my videos, they became visible on my business’s profile. Here is a screen capture:
