GoSite's Placement tool allows you to post images to Google and Facebook, create events, and schedule posts to send on a later date. Use the "Posts" feature within the Placement tool to showcase your work with before and after photos, promote offers or events, and announce business updates.

Why should I post?

  • Boost online activity: Any time you post, you trigger an activity signal which tells Google that your website is active and up-to-date. Google places active businesses higher on search results.

  • Stay connected to your customers: Posting online is a great way to stay connected with your customers and showcase your hard work.

How often should I post?

One post a week is a good rule of thumb. Staying active and consistent online is one of the signals Google looks for to determine your online ranking.
