    Re: Google Street View App, Getting Google Street View Trusted Photographer Status

    For whatever it's worth, Google's own virtual tour page sites an independent study from 2015 that found that listings with a virtual tour are 'twice as likely to generate interest'. The study looks a little artificial (it was a survey asking about likelihood of taking action, vs a proper study using CTR and conversion in the real-world, and the study itself was only for the restaurant and hotel industries) but still, if virtual tours do have an impact on engagement, then it would also influence rankings now that Google's made engagement itself a factor.

    Super interesting, thanks Bill! Makes me want to get verified myself.

    May I ask what your set up is to get those great photos? I might make an investment and would value your advice.

    Many thanks,

    Jon.

    Forgot to mention - lots of our members that do Local SEO are also Trusted Photographers.
    Think it's a perfect match. Either service can be a door opener for the other.

    I bought a Ricoh Theta SC, which does photos and video. It's essentially the same as a Ricoh Theta S, but doesn't do live 360 video streaming (if you wanted to do that on Facebook Live, for example).

    There's a list of Google-approved devices here:
