Google My Business Now Supports Adding more Services Offered to Local Listings

Google My Business expands services lists to include industries outside of restaurants, allowing more companies to improve local visibility…

Google just expanded its local listings services menu to include industries other than restaurants, a community manager announced. Previously, this option only existed for restaurants, but now, it’s being made available to more. 

Google My Business Expands Services Lists to More Industries

The expanded Google My Business services menu is easily accessible. Simply log into a Google My Business account, then select the info tab. This opens the “Add or edit items” option, along with “Add attributes.”

There’s also an “Add section” option to display on local profiles:

It’s a small but welcome change. Until now, businesses could not add such pertinent information to their local listings, unless they were restaurants. Just recently, Google added business descriptions to listings. Back in January, the search engine introduced video upload support for profiles. Prior, in October of last year, Google added a booking button to the platform.

However, the newest addition isn’t perfect yet. Google warns users might experience issues with the feature. “If your listing is currently displaying an incorrect menu, please see this help center link for more information on how to correct or remove the link.”
