The Google Business Profile

Google (My) Business Profile Questions Answered by Professor M

Why don’t I have available Google Posts like other businesses?

Unfortunately, not all businesses can use Google (My) Business Profile Posts. Google restricts some business categories of posting.

A shortlist of categories with no posting ability (by no means exhaustive):

  • Weapons and ammo related categories
  • Adult Education School
  • Some health categories

If it is normal for Google Business Profiles with your business category to have the Posts feature, then Google restricted your profile or account of using Google Posts. This happens normally if Google suspects you or the business profile violate its policy.

I hope this article helped you.
