A couple of weeks ago, Google Posts went live, allowing businesses with Google My Business listings to post content directly into their local box in the search results in real-time.  Google Posts requires businesses to manage yet another location for sharing promotions and marketing material.

There are those who are wondering if there is a way to schedule these Google Posts or automate them with your posts to the likes of Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn.  In short, the answer is no, not right now.  But will there be an option in the future?  Maybe, maybe not.

Local Search Forums thread has Joy Hawkins saying “There is currently no way to schedule Google Plus posts – not even from within the Google My Business dashboard.”

A viable idea as to why Google hasn’t implemented a scheduling feature yet is because they don’t want people to spam.
