Google is TESTING 

So I hear that Google is testing out the Paid-For-Profile – this isn’t exactly new information but the stir it is causing feels new.

This came from Google through #SearchEngineLand

We’re always testing new ways to improve our experience for our advertisers, merchants, and users.

This experiment will show the Google Guaranteed badge on the business profile. We don’t have anything additional to announce right now.

You probably remember when I brought The Google Local Services Ads to your attention. These are available for eligible service-area businesses and professional services.

And some areas don’t even have LSA’s for professionals yet.

It makes sense that as a Local Service Area business you would benefit by the Google Guarantee – Anyone can say they are anybody out there, even acting as you!

There are a huge number of unknowns, but what we do know is  — continue to optimize your current Google My Business, POST, update SERVICES, OFFERS, ETC……..and engaging with potential customers as you normally would.
