What is “Google Trusted”?

What Does “Google Trusted” Mean?


A Google Trusted Photographer is a professional that has been officially certified by Google to create virtual tours of private commercial and residential properties.  The trusted status is achieved after passing Google’s high standards and qualifications.

A Google Trusted Photographer is not a Google employee, but does have access to Google software (and sometimes Google provided equipment), and can create virtual tours of businesses that are added to Google My Business listings, Google Maps, and Street View.

Virtual Tours + Street View

While all Google Trusted Photographers can publish virtual tours, not all trusted photographers have the ability to overwrite Google’s own imagery on Street View… but we do!

The recording process, post-production, and publishing into Street View is accomplished at a more advanced level and Mythos Media is the sole provider in Georgia.


Beware of Scammers

Scammers regularly target businesses claiming to be “partnered” with Google and that your Google Business listing might be removed or requires a one-time payment to keep online.
