Unlocking the Power of Social Links in Google Business Profiles: A Step-by-Step Guide to New Features

As Seen On

The world of digital marketing has experienced another exciting development as Google continues to enrich its Google Business Profile platform to help business operators manage their online presence. A recent update from Google has introduced a refined way of managing social links in the Google Business Profile, offering businesses a gateway to broader and more effective digital visibility.

It is important to note, however, not all businesses can currently benefit from this update. The full-fledge roll-out is still in the works, which means the feature might not be available for some users. Google is staying tight-lipped about when full availability is expected, but it’s clear that all businesses will soon have access to this upgrade.

When available, adding social links to your Google Business Profile becomes an easy process. Access your business account, navigate to the ‘Info’ section, and search for ‘Add social media links’. Click on it to add your desired social links. You can also update your web address field for any social media link directly in this section.

Google Business Profile also allows users to edit and remove social media links. If your links need updating or if you wish to delete a particular social media link, you can do so effortlessly. Just visit the ‘Info’ section and select the link you want to edit or delete. This degree of flexibility comes as a boon for organizations that are looking to stay up-to-date and remain adaptable on their digital front.

When it comes to the range of supported social networks, Google has included numerous platforms, from mainstream options like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn to more nuanced ones like Yelp, TripAdvisor, and, in place of Twitter, ‘X’, a hot new network making waves in the social media sector.

Google Business Profile makes these links visible right alongside your business listing, with a designated section displaying your social handles clearly. This offers higher visibility and instant access to your wider web presence at a glance.

This latest feature comes as a game-changer for businesses aiming to streamline their online visibility. The capacity to manage social links directly via Google Business Profile offers convenience and speed, reducing the need for customers to strain through search results.

This impressive new feature’s development and introduction was initially noted by tech-savvy Elisabeth Rule, who continues to provide critical insights into these momentous shifts in the digital marketing landscape.

This update signifies Google’s commitment to refining and enhancing the Google Business Profile platform, optimizing it for businesses and consumers alike. While we await the complete roll-out of this feature, we can certainly look forward to other advances from Google in their quest to redefine the management and optimization of business profiles.

So, whether a well-established titan of industry or an up-and-coming small business looking to harness the power of social links, the Google Business Profile updates certainly herald a new era of cohesive, comprehensive, and streamlined online presence management.

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
