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.
A 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.
