Google Testing Local Finder Images Only For Ads

SEO Content Writing Service

Google may be testing only showing images in the local finder, the local search results in Google Maps, for listings that are ads. The rest of the listings, the one without ads, may only show a map image but not an image from the business profile.

This was spotted by Justin Mosebach posted about this on Twitter and said, “Wow. Google’s testing not showing images in the local finder, *except* for ads!”

He shared this image:

Honestly, I am not sure if this is real, a bug, a test or just the way these local listings showed up this minute in time:

Yes, this is definitely new! Interesting. Great find Ben!

You can’t tell from the screenshot, but when I kept scrolling, the remaining organic GBP listings had map icons.

Not the Google Screened having photos (that’s not new)… but none of the organic listings have photos (they all show map thumbnails).

Either way – I figured I would share this more widely to see if others have or do see this.

Forum discussion at Twitter.

Note: This was pre-written and scheduled to be posted today, I am currently offline for Passover.
