This is in reference to the "Search by Photos" section which pulls photos from GMBs, along with title and reviews and clicks to the GMB on mobile.

Other than having a photo with faces, is there any other recommendations with how to get the top spot in here? Anyone do testing or analysis on which images exist on the GMB vs. which are chosen and which are ranked first?
  • Portrait vs. landscape?
  • Specific file size or dimensions?
  • The number of people to include?
  • Team vs. Selfie vs. In action photos?
  • Is photo metadata still useless for this section?
  • Uploaded by the business (not a user)?
  • Anything else?

Note - we rank in top 3 for this query in maps, but are not in the top 5 for images.
