Local SEO Tip: GBP Waiting Period

Welcome back to another episode of Local Search Tuesdays. Greg’s in the UK, speaking at Brighton SEO, so Dane stepped in for this week’s episode. Today, we’re going to talk about an important issue with user management in your Google Business Profile.

This week’s tip is short, but really important for every business out there. Recently, Google implemented a mandatory waiting period for new managers of Google Business Profiles. Whenever you add a new manager (or transfer ownership to a new user), that new manager won’t be able to make any edits to the profile for seven days.
