While we talked thoroughly about Why it’s important to post once a week, now it’s time to discuss the optimal size and format for Google My Business post photos

Size

According to Googles website, photos should have a minimum resolution of 400px wide by 300px tall. Additionally the photos should be in JPG or PNG format.

The ratio of the width to the heigh is going to be more important than the size, so long as your image meets the minimum size requirements. This ratio is 4:3.

If the photo does not meet the minimum size requirements the photo will be blurry or low resolution. If the photo does not match the 4:3 ratio then part of the image will be cropped out.

Videos

A Google post can also be in the form a video. Videos will appeal to a different demographic than typical posts. Additionally, a video allows the organization to pack all kinds of information into a short interaction. Google posts will accept the following file formats for video: AVI, MP4, MOV, FLV, WMV, MPG, M4V, MKV, M2TS, and MTS. The maximum size for videos is 100 MB
