Google My Business Changes Post Limit to 1,500 Characters
September 30, 2018 / Matt Southern
Google has changed the length of posts published via Google My Business to 1,500 characters. Previously, the length of Google My Business posts was based on words, not characters. Google used to require a minimum of 100 words per post, up to a maximum of 300 words. Now there is apparently no minimum length for Google My Business posts. In most cases, users will find that the maximum length for posts has been shortened, as 1,500 characters are approximately the equivalent of 250 words. Of course, that will vary depending on the size of words an individual uses. I believe users will be hard pressed to stretch 1,500 characters into 300 words or more.
