A brand new feature for Google My Business

12th April 2018 By Rebecca Hughes
A free tool for businesses and organisations to manage their online presence across Google, Google My Business allows users to manage public information about their business, interact with customers and both understand and expand your online presence. Now, Google has expatiated the ability for more businesses to add their services to their menus.

Back in January, Google announced the launch of a new Menu editor for the food service industry. This allowed listing owners to be able to showcase their menu directly on their Google listing for consumers by adding their own structured menu using the GMB Info tab located in Google My Business.

This month, Google revealed that this has now been expanded to include additional services, stating:

“Businesses in health & beauty, and service businesses, such as plumbers and florists, now have the ability to add their menu of services directly to their listing through their Google My Business account.

Same as the food establishment menu editor, this feature will only be available if the listing is not currently connected to a third party provider and for listings in English speaking locals.”

To access this new feature, you need to:

  • Log in to your Google My Business listing.
  • Click on the info tab and select the add or edit services icon.
  • Insert your services into the pop-up and save.

However, there is a catch… if your listing is connected to a third-party provider and is not currently shown in an English-speaking locale, the feature won’t be available for use.
