I was searching for Seattle music lessons while doing some case study work and noticed that both Posts and Descriptions for GMB are above the fold for a few businesses. This bodes potentially some good news for these features. Previously it was spotted that GMB Posts were at the top of the mobile GMB Profile.

Good find, @BenFisher. I haven't been able to replicate it.

It just occurred to me that Google might have more success in motivating business owners to keep the GMB posts "fresh" (i.e. a new one every 7 days) if the new posts always sat in that catbird seat, and would drop to the bottom of the KP only if 7 days go by without a new post.
