Google, unfortunately, restricts certain businesses from making posts. This is a system level restriction on Google's end, and it does not matter whether you post from either Social Marketing or directly from Google My Business itself.
Some Google My Business categories or types that are unable to post are as follows:
- Hotel (and all related categories)
- Gun Shop
- Adult Entertainment
- Alcohol-related categories
This list isn't comprehensive as Google has not made a list of restricted categories public. We have found that if a business falls within one of the categories listed under prohibited content, it's unlikely to support posts.
