    New Google+ Update for Geotagging Photos

    Hey guys there was another Google+ Business update yesterday, that I thought may be helpful for local. Not sure how it will impact ranking, but could not hurt to try it.

    Many of you are already geotagging anyway and this could make it easier.

    See screenshot of settings below.

    Making it easier to geotag your photos Today we’re excited…

    Today we’re excited to launch a handy new feature for geotagging your photos.

    From your desktop:

    - Click on any of your photos to view it in the lightbox, and expand “Photo details” to see its geographic location (if any).

    - Click “Add location” to tag your photo with any location in the world. If it’s already geotagged, you can edit or remove its location by clicking “Edit” or “Remove.”

    As always, you control whether viewers can see the geo locations of your photo albums: just open your photos in the lightbox, and click “Show/Hide location data” in Photo details. You can also adjust your geo location preferences for new albums via settings (http://google.com/settings/plus).

    We’re always working to make your Google+ photos experience better, so we hope you enjoy this new feature! (P.S. it’s rolling out gradually, so check back soon if you don’t see it yet...)
    Here is a screenshot I did of the setting screen.

    What do you think?

    I have no time with everything going on in Googleland right now, to try/test this.
    So please share anything you discover that would be helpful to other members.

    Just discovered David Deering broke the news about this in another post I missed, because I was busy breaking the news about the new layout update.

    Trying this out with a few clients so will be interested to see if it has any impact. The setting under accounts certainly makes it simpler than it was.

    And speaking of photos, big update in G+ today with the size of the cover photo increased. Could be interesting to see how businesses use that space.

    Re: New Google+ Update for Geotagging Photos

    Totally forgot about this option, and think it's really hot, so bumping because I don't think hardly anyone knows about it or is using it.

    Geotag images right on the G+ page.

    PLUS auto geotag the whole photo album:

    In settings CHECK: Show photo geo location information in newly uploaded albums and photos.

    It's for G+ if you've already merged, but soon Google will upgrade everyone to G+ so you will have it then.

    Re: New Google+ Update for Geotagging Photos

    I just had a few clients merge, but I'm having trouble finding where to geotag the pics in G+. I've looked everywhere and feel like a newb. I do see the setting to turn on auto geotag new photos/albums, but I cannot actually edit the image properties within g+.

    Can someone give me hint?

    @Spainops: Make sure you are trying to tag a picture that can be geotagged. Pictures that came from the old places dashboard seem to not be eligible for tagging (or at least have no option to tag). See below where to look for the option to add geotag info.
