Go to your GMB account and click on “Posts” on the left-side menu when you are in your Google business listing. You can also access it by clicking here.

You should see a screen that looks like this:

Google Posts first launched in January 2016 under the name “candidate cards,” but they were only available initially for political candidates to post content that would show up for relevant political search queries. A couple of months later, the feature was available for a very limited number of small businesses. It has slowly expanded since then until today’s full launch.
