What size should my Google My Business logo be?

Here you can find information on the recommended size for a Google My Business logo. It is important to remember that Google will accept images that don’t meet some of these requirements. The ones that don’t meet recommended criteria, however, will look unprofessional.

What else should I consider when picking a Google My Business logo?

 Quality

The photo needs to be in focus and perfectly lit, and have no considerable edits or excessive application of filters. The photo should show reality. The logo will demonstrate your business identity to customers on Google.

Low-resolution or grainy pictures give off a very bad first impression. While the establishment might be wonderful, a customer will simply go to a place where they know for sure the service looks great.

The same goes for dark photos or images in unnatural lighting. For best results, consulting with a graphic designer can provide substantial returns over time. While Afiar doesn’t have any in-house graphic designers, we work with really talented ones on a daily basis. Help us connect you to one here. This is especially true in densely populated areas.

 Accuracy

Another very important aspect of your logo is something we’ve seen business-owners drop the ball on over-and-over. Accuracy

What we mean by accuracy is, How well does the logo reflect your business?

It is vital that your logo is the same logo and icon people will see when doing business with you. The same logo on your documents, website, etc. When a user sees a logo on Google My Business, clicks the business, and ends on a website with a different logo at the top, it’s very common for them to quickly click ‘Back’ because they think you haven’t updated your website address.

In reality, you may have just been trying out a new logo. But users don’t know this. Make sure your logo is consistent across all platforms and branding. (T-shirts, embroidery, documents, etc)
