If you've been wondering if your local business should utilize online video, wonder no more. Google Maps is adding embedded YouTube videos in the maps. The videos can viewed under the “Photos and Videos” tab.
On the Google LatLong blog, an example of a bakery in San Francisco is given. The video showcases the amazing artistry of the cakes at I Dream of Cake.
Here's what you need to know in order to get your video embedded with Google Maps.
1. Upload the video to YouTube. Make sure the “embed” option is selected.
2. Then use Google's Local Business Center to associate your video with your business listing.
Since the Photos and Videos tab lies right along with the Reviews tab, an online video is also great online reputation management strategy.
