Need an easy way to schedule and automatically repeat Google My Business posts?

The fact that your Google My Business posts expire after 7 days means that you have to constantly go back into GMB and post something week after week, again and again.

The solution: schedule out your Google My Business posts weeks or even months ahead of time.

OneUp allows you to schedule and set your Google My Business posts to automatically repeat. You can schedule the same post across multiple Google My Business accounts and locations at the same time. The best part is it’s only $4/month for up to 3 accounts.

The process is simple. Just connect your Google My Business account on the Accounts page.

Then schedule your GMB post, optionally adding any link or image to the post.

Then add your Call-To-Action button and a link.

In addition to just scheduling posts, OneUp allows you to set GMB posts to automatically repeat at custom intervals — such as once a week or once a month.

This allows you to reap the benefits of being active on Google My Business, without the hassle of constantly going back in every week to manually post something once your post expires.

Then choose to post it now, or schedule it for a date in the future.

Do Google My Business posts help SEO?

This post goes over whether Google My Business posts help with SEO.

Google My Business, sometimes shortened to GMB, has provided the ability to publish posts to your Google My Business account. This is somewhat similar to a social media post, except it shows up in the Google search results.

If you are reading this, it probably means you are at least familiar with Google My Business posts. Your questions are probably something like:

Should I be taking the time to post on Google My Business?

Are there SEO benefits to posting on Google My Business?

Are Google posts worth my time and effort?

After all, Google My Business posts expire after 7 days, so it can be somewhat annoying to remember to post something new at least once a week.

In addition, Google My Business does not offer a way to schedule posts for the future natively, nor a way to publish the same post across multiple GMB locations at the same time.

(However, OneUp allows you to schedule Google posts for the future, set them to automatically repeat, and to post across multiple locations at once. More on OneUp at the bottom.)


Google My Business SEO case studies

Case Study #1

Kyle runs an SEO agency, and was able to get his client ranked in multiple cities in just a short time by utilizing Google My Business posts. This has led to a 54.94% increase in organic traffic for his client compared to the previous period.

Watch Kyle’s video for a full explanation of his process:


Case Study #2

In this study from Seach Engine Land, Joy states that using Google My Business posts moved the business into the top 3 positions of Google, also known as the 3-pack.

For this business, we saw their ranking in the local results increase one position on “garage flooring Vancouver.”  It moved up from position four to position three, winning them a spot in the 3-pack, less than a week after they started posting.

For just “garage flooring” (implicit search), they increased from position seven to two about four days after the posts started. I double-checked to make sure they didn’t receive any new reviews a few days prior to the increase, since they did receive a few new reviews during the course of the test.

Joy also talks about a church moving from the 5th spot to the 3rd spot in Google just by using Google My Business posts.


Case Study #3

In this study published on the Moz blog, they looked at the companies that rank in the top 20 of the search results for local searches in major cities for these keywords:

real estate agent, mortgage, travel agency, insurance or insurance agents, dentist, plastic surgeon, personal injury lawyer, plumber, veterinarian or vet, and locksmith

Their findings: A total of 59.60% of businesses that rank in the top 20 for these terms have posted a Google My Business Post on their Google My Business profile.

Additionally, 17.5% of businesses had an active post in the last 7 days.

While it may not prove it with absolute certainty, it leads one to believe that Google My Business posts certainly do have a positive effect on SEO.


Case Study #4

The question was raised whether Google My Business posts help with traffic on this SEO subreddit, and many people responded saying that they have seen positive results from using GMB posts.

How to post to multiple Google My Business (GMB) locations at once

At this time, Google My Business, or GMB for short, only allows you to create posts for one location at a time. This can be quite annoying if you manage multiple Google My Business locations and want to share the same post over those multiple locations.

Yes, you could always manually copy and paste your post across all your locations, but that will be a frustrating waste of time.

Here is how you can post to multiple Google My Business locations at the same time.

Using OneUp, first you choose which Google My Business locations you want to post to. You can choose some or all of your locations; you just highlight which locations you want to post to. You can hover over each location to see its name.

Then you add your post, with whatever image you would like.

Then choose your Call-T0-Action button and whatever website you want to link to.

Then you choose whether you want it to be posted once, or whether you want the post to automatically repeat.

If you choose for the post to repeat, you can choose whatever repeating interval you would like. For example, this post will repeat once every 3 weeks:

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-2.png

This allows you to reap the benefits of being active on Google My Business, without the hassle of constantly going back in every week to manually post something once your post expires.

Then to finish up, you choose whether you want it to be posted now, or scheduled for the future.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is image-3.png

And here is what the post looks like on the Google search results page:

Now you can easily post to multiple Google My Business (GMB) locations at the same time with just a few clicks.

In addition to Google My Business, OneUp supports Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.

Starting at only $4/month, OneUp is an affordable and convenient way to post to multiple Google My Business locations at the same time.

How to post to multiple Facebook pages at once

This post shows how to post to multiple Facebook pages at the same time.

For anyone who posts the same thing to multiple Facebook pages, you are familiar with the struggle of copying and pasting the same post and photo across your multiple Facebook pages

If you need a simple way to schedule and post to multiple Facebook pages at the same time, check out OneUp.

Here is what the scheduling dashboard looks like. First you choose which Facebook pages you want to post to. You can choose some or all of your pages; you just highlight which pages you want to post to.

Then you add your post, with whatever link and image you would like.

Then you choose whether you want it to be posted once, or whether you want the post to automatically repeat.

If you choose for the post to repeat, you can choose whatever repeating interval you would like. For example, this post will repeat once every 3 weeks:

Then to finish up, you choose whether you want it to be posted now, or scheduled for the future.

Now you can easily post to multiple Facebook pages at the same time with just a few clicks.

In addition to Facebook, OneUp supports Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Google My Business.

Starting at only $4/month, OneUp is an affordable and convenient way to post to multiple Facebook pages at the same time.

Can I schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile?

This post goes over scheduling Facebook posts on a personal profile.

Prior to August of 2018, you could schedule Facebook posts on personal profiles using third-party scheduling tools.

However, on August 1st, 2018, Facebook changed their API and removed the ability for third-party scheduling tools to schedule Facebook posts to personal profiles. This means it is no longer possible to schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile.

You can still use social media scheduling tools to schedule posts to Facebook Pages and Facebook Groups, as long as you are the admin. You cannot schedule posts to Facebook Groups that you are only a member of, but not the admin.

Need a way to schedule and automate your social media posts?

OneUp is a social media scheduling tool that allows you to schedule and automatically repeat your posts on Facebook, Twitter, Google My Business, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram for only $4 per month.

Here are some of the features:

Posting to multiple pages – For people who are posting to multiple pages or more than one social network at a time, OneUp makes it easy to post to FB Pages and Groups, LinkedIn profiles and pages, and Twitter accounts, Pinterest, Google My Business, and Instagram all at once.

Repeating post – OneUp gives you the option to repeat your posts automatically. This allows you to resurface old posts that otherwise would have never been seen again. Also for anyone that has a Facebook Group with daily themes that repeat every week (such as “Make it happen Monday”), OneUp makes it easy to entirely automate this.

RSS feed automation – If there are any blogs, publications, podcasts, or YouTube channels that put out good content consistently, you can add the RSS feed links in OneUp, then whenever new content is posted from those places, it is automatically shared to the pages you select.

Chrome Extension – Using the OneUp Chrome extension, you can easily schedule many images at once from any website, such as sunsets for example. You can choose which images from the website you want to post to social media, bulk update or individually update the descriptions and links for each post, then schedule them to be posted with a set interval (such as every 60 minutes), or choose custom dates and times for all of them.

Customizable UTM parameters – OneUp lets you customize UTM parameters so you can keep track of how your links are performing in Google Analytics.

Link Shortening – Connect your Bitly account and OneUp will automatically shorten any links and allow you to track clicks through Bitly.

Although you cannot schedule Facebook posts on a personal profile, OneUp makes it easy to manage your social media.

Instead of doing that, here is how you can post to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter at the same time.

Can I schedule Google My Business posts to more than 10 locations?

Over the past year or so, Google My Business has opened up their API so that you can schedule Google My Business posts to multiple locations at the same time with 3rd-party scheduling tools like OneUp.

However, Google My Business currently limits post scheduling to businesses with fewer than 10 locations. Here are the rules stated at the bottom of the Google My Business API guide:

Permissions
Not every business or brand can Post through the API.

Who’s allowed to Post through the API?
Any business or brand with fewer than 10 locations is allowed to Post through the API. The number of location is determined by our internal chain detection. Brands with 10 or more locations are not currently eligible to Post through the API.

Why are large chain retailers not allowed to Post with the API?
The Posts feature expands on our small- to medium-sized business (SMB) launch of Posts, and enables SMBs that use third-party platforms to Post on Google. Currently, we’re working to determine the best method to offer the Posts feature to large chain retailers in the future.


So that is bad news for anyone trying to schedule posts to 10 or more Google My Business locations at the same time. However, the good news is that it sounds like GMB will be changing this rule in the near future.

Want to be notified as soon as Google My Business changes this rule?

Add your email below and we will let you know as soon as GMB changes the 10 or more location limitation. No spam ever.

Need a way to schedule Google My Business posts?

OneUp is a Google My Business post scheduling tool that starts at just $4/month. In addition to GMB posts, OneUp also supports Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram posts.

Unfortunately, OneUp does not support GMB posts to businesses with 10 or more locations at this time, due to the previously referenced GMB API limitation.

If you try to schedule Google My Business posts to a business with 10 or more locations using OneUp, those posts will most likely fail, even if you only choose to schedule a post to one of the locations.

However, we have seen some circumstances where a chain with more than 10 locations was able to successfully post to all locations through OneUp, so it may be worth a try. (It all depends if Google has characterizes your business as a chain via their algorithm)

As soon as Google My Business removes their API limit, OneUp will support GMB posts to as many locations as you choose.

OneUp

Using OneUp is simple. Just connect your Google My Business account on the Accounts page.

Then schedule your GMB post, optionally adding any link or image to the post.

Then add your Call-To-Action button and a link.

In addition to just scheduling posts, OneUp allows you to set GMB posts to automatically repeat at set intervals — such as once a week or once a month.

This allows you to reap the benefits of being active on Google My Business, without the hassle of constantly going back in every week to manually post something once your post expires.

Then choose to post it now, or schedule it for a date in the future.

OneUp has a 7-day free trial and is only $4/month for up to 3 accounts.

Does Yext support Google My Business post scheduling?

Yes, Yext supports Google My Business. However, Yext starts at $199/year. OneUp supports GMB, in addition to Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and LinkedIn and is only $4/month for up to 3 Google My Business accounts.

Google My Business is an easy way for businesses to stand out in local SEO, and posts on GMB have been shown to increase traffic and improve search rankings.

However, the fact that your Google My Business posts expire after 7 days means that you have to constantly go back into GMB and post something week after week, again and again.

The solution: schedule out your Google My Business posts weeks or even months ahead of time.

The issue, however, is that very few social media schedulers work with Google My Business, and the ones that do work charge upwards of $50/month, which is a big hit to take for many businesses. Yext is too expensive for many small businesses.

OneUp

Using OneUp, you can schedule posts to Google My Business for only $4/month.

The process is simple. Just connect your Google My Business account on the Accounts page.

Then schedule your GMB post, optionally adding any link or image to the post.
