Now Offering Google Street View for Business
What is Google Business Views? Google Business Views is an offshoot of Google Maps. For several years Google has been visually mapping the world with their Street View technology. Street View allow users of Google Maps to see a 360° spherical photograph with the ability to look in all directions of a map location. These 360° photos or spherical panoramas are linked together allowing the user to virtually travel down a road that has been photographed. Google Business Photos allows certified photographers to offer that same Street View technology to businesses. A business virtual tour allows users to travel through a store, restaurant or other business location.






In addition to a 360° virtual tour of the inside of a business, trusted photographers also take a series of still photographs for a business photo gallery. These photos, both still and Street View are published to a Google+ Local page tailored specifically for the business. Business owners may claim their Google+ Local page to add other details and photos if desired.


 
Additionally to the photos being published on Google+ Local, they will also be visible from Google's main search page. A map, link to the photo gallery and a link to the Street View tour are all displayed in the upper right of the results page after searching for a particular business.

 

Similar search results are also displayed on Google Maps.



Google Business Street View photos are linked directly to the Google Maps Street View if it is available at the businesses address. In addition to being directly linked to Street View, a large thumbnail is displayed linking directly to the Business Street View and the business official website. The info bubble displayed on a map for a business contains a link, "more info", that leads directly to the Google+ Local page where the images are displayed.



In addition to a 360° virtual tour of the inside of a business, trusted photographers also take a series of still photographs for a business photo gallery.
