    Google Business View/Virtual Tour

    Hi,

    Is it possible to load up a virtual tour that you did on your own to your google profile? Whenver I click on virtual tour it takes me to the business view landing page.

    I actually have a tour shot by a certified photographer, I'm just not sure how to get it in there. . . .

    Hi HoosierBuff,

    I'm curious how it works but isn't that part of what a Trusted Photographer does? Get the finished tour uploaded for you? I'd have them do it for you.

    We have a couple members that are Trusted Photographers so hopefully they'll see this and weigh in.

    I have not done one of these yet, but would sure love to know about how the entire process works.

    Re: Google Business View/Virtual Tour

    If you did the tour yourself (or with a non-Google Trusted Photographer) you can not upload it to your Google account. It has to go through their system and be formatted in a specific way (with specific equipment and their software).

    You could though link to your version in your description inside your profile.

    Re: Google Business View/Virtual Tour

    Greg is right.

    I guess I was confused by your post because 1st you said: "did on your own"

    Then you said: "I actually have a tour shot by a certified photographer"

    I assumed you meant a Google Trusted Photog and just used the wrong wording, but should have asked for clarification.

    If indeed you didn't use a Google Trusted Photog then there is no way, like Greg said.

    Re: Google Business View/Virtual Tour

    We just added business views to our service offering. The trusted photographer is the only person who can upload the view, and it's done in a very strict fashion. Google dictates every step of the process. If you had the shoot done by a trusted photographer they should be uploading it for you as part of the service.

    Re: Google Business View/Virtual Tour

    Only Google trusted photographers can upload and get the link from the tour to you business page.

    This is an option if you have shot and stitched a virtual tour and want to get them into Google: https://www.google.com/maps/views/
