    I've seen a few of those (wondered WTF they were). I thought they were an animated GIF. We'll see how long that lasts.

    Wow, I couldn't believe it. I called for AdWords, but there was an option for support for GMB at the following:

    Call us at: +1-866-246-6453
    9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday

    Has anyone else use the new "services" tab in Google my business? Would be interested to see if this has an affect on SEO going forwards.

    Just noticed that you can use video for your GMB Posts! Under 100MB.

    The "services" tab...I'll try posting our Service Menu and see what happens.

    Looks like it forces a unit price on you, but yeah I noticed it too. I doubt it has much "SEO" value, but your services and prices would be nicely listed in front of your customers.

    I guess if you already have a video ready you can upload it. Don't go crazy for a custom video, same goes for FB Business page. You wouldn't believe how low traffic can be. *Hint, it's near 0.

    Oh, mb in 20 years, all the social media will offer the same features. I dislike that.
