Business Profiles

Bulk posting updates for your business listing in Google Business vs. Mobal platform

Managing your Google Business profile in bulk comes in handy when you have multiple business locations and limited time. Instead of going through every business profile and editing them individually, you can use different methods and tools to update your business information in bulk.

To ensure that your business information is accurate and that only you, the business owner or authorized representative, can manage it, you should first ensure that your business profiles are verified and in the same location group. Once verified, you are eligible to be shown in search, maps, and other Google properties. Why do you need to be seen in these places, you may ask? We have compiled all the reasons why your Google Business profiles are the new face of your business and why you should be optimizing them in this article here.

Bulk posting with Google Business

Through Google, you can update your business listings in bulk by downloading their ready-made spreadsheet, which you then fill in and import into Google Business Manager. In the spreadsheet, you can add business categories, sub-categories, website links, and change opening hours, among many other things. The bulk update allows you to easily update general information about your business without the hassle of doing it individually in every business profile. Your profile attributes can also be updated in bulk and require you to fill out another spreadsheet. 

Note: As of yet, you can't update hotel attributes through the spreadsheet upload. To update hotel attributes, use the API and dashboard.

A good thing to mention when bulk posting updates for your profiles is that you need a shop code for your business to be able to bulk edit via the spreadsheet upload. The shop code can be whatever you choose, for example, mybusiness01, 02, and so on. You can add the shop code in your Google business manager by going to your info section and finding the “Advanced information” field. The shop code works as an identifier for your business profiles and is needed for the spreadsheet.
