Why is my business category not eligible to make posts?

Google 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 Business Profile itself.

Some Google Business Profile categories or types that are unable to post are as follows:

  1. Hotel (and all related categories)
  2. Gun Shop
  3. Adult Entertainment
  4. 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.
