The Google Street View Trusted program is evolving

If you are unfamiliar with trusted Google Street View, you can find out more here. The program has always been an effective way to get a Google recognition badge, to show that you are qualified to put businesses on the map. However, as the industry evolves, so does the program.

Google will now segment the program into three service-based levels, instead of a standardized buffer.

The levels are as follows:

  1. Street View Trusted: for general Street View capture on foot or by car
  2. Large Trusted Tour: These are larger virtual tours, such as shopping malls.
  3. Virtual Tour Trusted: As the name suggests, virtual tours of small places such as shops will fall under this category.
