Bulk Uploads on Google My Business

When you maintain your Google My Business, have you ever sat there adding address after address, phone number after phone number, location after location and wondered if this seemingly infinite task will ever end?


Rest assured, we have an answer to this very problem – bulk uploads!


That’s right! You can enter all the details necessary into an Excel sheet and import it to your Google My Business in one go!


Why Bulk Upload Things?

The most obvious answer to this would be that by uploading things in bulk, you’re instantly saving yourself a lot of time.  All the information is in one place and you don’t have to switch through different tabs and windows to find the information you need. You may even already have all the details in a spreadsheet anyway, making the process of importing it even quicker and even easier!


How do I Bulk Upload on Google My Business?

First things first, you need to login to your Google My Business and choose the account you’d like to manage. Then in the top right-hand corner, press ‘Add business’ and select ‘Import businesses’ from the drop down.
