Google My Business videos not showing up on your local listing? It’s a Google bug
No, you probably did not upload your videos incorrectly to Google My Business. Google confirmed a bug with the videos now showing and is working on fixing the issue.
Last Friday, Google launched a feature to upload videos to Google My Business local listings. Google said that videos would be processed and live within 24 hours of being uploaded. That, however, is not the case; there is a bug that is preventing the videos from showing up on the local listings in Google Maps or Google web search.
Google My Business confirmed the bug last night on Twitter:
