Google Local guide program: How to join it and earn points?


Local guide program

The local Guide Program was introduced by Google. This program allows people to share their experiences of the places they visit. For example, you just visit your dream place and share your experience by giving a rating and sharing some images and videos. The Local Guide program is directly linked with Google Maps. You can also add a new place and road on Google Maps with the help of the Local Guide Program. People earn points for their contributions.

Did you know! Google Local Guides also get a chance to participate in community forums and visit Google-hosted events and get early access to Google's new products. 


How do Google local guide programs work?

There are a total of 10 levels in the local guide program. From Level 1 to Level 3 you get no badge. Go to Level 4 once you get 250 points. Once you reach Level 4 or above you earn a badge. The badge is displayed next to your name in Google Maps. 

You can contribute as a Google local guide by sharing reviews, photos, and videos, editing the facts, asking and answering questions, and adding a missing place and knowledge on Google Maps. As a local guide, you make an impact on your community. You can also connect with a Global Community. 

With the help of the Local Guide Form, you can connect with others passionate about sharing their experiences, knowledge, and new places they discover.
