Local Guides Connect – Help Desk – Local Guides Connect

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/01

Reminder to self: Local Guides Nederland moved their [WayBack] G+ community over to [WayBackLocal Guides Connect – Help Desk – Local Guides Connect which is part of [WayBack] Local Guides Connect and powered by [WayBack] Powered by Lithium | Lithium.

Since that is not part of any other social media platform I subscribe to, I will likely only see new stuff when I actively go to that place: hopefully that is more than once a year.

I’ve read reports that it seems to take 2 or + weeks for the 1TB promotion to take effect.

Source: Local Guide – Level 4 (1TB on Google Drive) – Google Product Forums

In practice it’s usually not that bad as most of the times it’s a matter of days not weeks though it can take up to 5 weeks.

It’s nice to be a Google Local Guide as you learn a lot of new things and people that way for instance through the Local Guide events.

If you’re interested, read Level 0-4 in 40 days, what I’ve learned from Google Local Guides – Pocketables

I only discovered about this a while ago as it was early last year for Google Replacing City Experts with Local Guides Program | Understanding Google My Business & Local Search

What really helps contributing is to view your Google Maps Timeline
