In the past 6 months I've really pushed my dentists to hire a Google-trusted photographer for GBV.

Now that the Snack Pack doesn't link to Google Local pages, what's the point of having a GBV????

Hi Chris,

I believe they still show on maps and on the Knowledge Graph on the Local Finder.

Plus you can still embed on the website which is one of the best things to do with a shoot.

Google is rebranding Business View and seems to be making a big push, so don't think it's going away. But ya hiding the G+ page kinda stinks.

It still seems pretty obvious to me why you would want a "See Inside" and photos if you look at these screenshots
