Google to Review Photos & Videos Uploaded to Google My Business

Google | March 09, 2020

Google has made an adjustment to the photo and video content policy for Google My Business listings. Going forward, photos and videos will be reviewed before being published. Given that a mandatory review was not in place before, you can likely expect some delay with photos and videos showing up on a GMB profile after being uploaded. Google did not state whether photos and videos will be automatically reviewed by AI, or if content will pass through a team of human reviewers.

G2 rates products and vendors based on reviews gathered from its user community and aggregate data from online sources and social networks. The G2 Satisfaction Score is calculated using a proprietary algorithm that factors in real-user satisfaction ratings from review data, taking into account factors like the recency of a review, the amount of feedback provided, attribution, whether the reviewer is a current user and community engagement with the review. "Once again, ZINI's customers have spoken loudly and clearly, and they're saying they love using our platform and are grateful for the services and the responsive support we provide, While we have consistently performed at a very high level over a period of several years in G2's ratings across all of their criteria, we never take success for granted.

I also make frequent use of the portal to find reference material and support documentation when supporting clients on the use of the products. Another major use of the portal is to use the resources provided to plan for future projects, especially with large implementations and upgrades of the partner products.
