In the Bay Area? Check out New Google Home Service Ads

Google just launched a really exciting program which helps connect home service providers (handymen, house cleaners, locksmiths, and plumbers) with local residents searching for these services.

The program is currently piloting in the San Francisco Bay Area right now with plans to expand in the future.

So what’s the program? Google Home Service Ads…

Google’s home service ads put trustworthy service providers in front of people who are looking to book quickly. Whether it’s a small plumbing company or a one-person locksmith shop, home service ads help businesses show up prominently on and reach customers who are searching for those services.

Here’s how it works: If a small business or individual provides any of the services mentioned above, the business can submit an interest form to participate in the pilot program. Once submitted, Google will screen and run a background check on the provider. If and when accepted into the program, the provider can simply tell us about their business, get qualified, and Google will do the rest. Google will organize the information collected from the provider into a polished profile page which includes a professional photo. When someone in the provider’s local area searches for that service, they will be able to see the profile within an expandable listing at the top of Google search results (yes, that’s right, at the top!). Sample search results are illustrated in the picture below. Customers can read detailed reviews, submit a service request, or call the business directly for more information.
