To reach Level 5 as Local Guide, you need to “score” 500 points. That sounds like a lot, but it is actually perfectly possible to do that in a single day – without violating any of the rules and, most importantly, by making genuine and meaningful contributions.

Hello, and welcome to the LetsGuide Podcast, the ultimate podcast for Google Local Guides. You’re listening to episode number 10, which is a bit of a milestone for me because, well, with 10 episodes we go into the double digits with respects to the number of episodes. And that’s a bit of an achievement, of course, because you might have noticed in your podcasting app that by far not all podcasts reach 10 episodes after starting out. Not sure if I will ever reach 100, because you have to realize this is just a hobby for me; so I want to point out also that I have no official affiliation to Google or the local guides team, I’m just a local guide like most of you and everything I say here is just my personal interpretation. This episode is recorded at the end of July 2019 and is therefore of course describing the situation as it is today. That might have changed if you’re listening to this episode at a later point in time.
