Adding more services to Google My Business has never been easier and only takes minutes to do. We are now seeing options in the Google My Business dashboard for certain business types. All you need to do is log in to your Google My Business account and click on ‘services’ on your dashboard’s left side.
LOOK FOR THE KEYWORD TABS
If you see keyword [+ tabs], then you are in luck! Google is suggesting more services for you to add based on your website content. This is also based on actual Google searches for your business type. (See some examples below)
If you agree with the Google suggestions, click each one that applies to your services and click the publish button.
HOW TO ADD A CUSTOM SERVICE TYPE
If you want to add custom services, click on the +Add Custom Service button.
Enter the service name and click confirm.
GETTING YOUR EDITS APPROVED
It might take a few days for Google My Business to approve your edit. Enter as many custom services as applies to your business. Don’t go crazy with this feature or risk having your listing suspended or disabled.
WHAT IF I CAN’T SAVE MY EDITS?
Do not worry if you are unable to save your edits. This only means this new feature has not been rolled out for your business type. On the other hand, webmasters have reported seeing the keyword suggestions for many of their listings. Eventually, this new feature will be available to everyone.
Some of these include; Pharmacies, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Deli’s, Security System Suppliers, Moving and Storage, Contactor and Insulation Contractors, Plumbers, Preschool, Daycare, DJ, Photographer, Remodeler, Attorney, Propane/Oil Company, Wedding Venue, Corporate Retreat Venue, Home Cinema, Home Automation, Audio Visual, Swimming Pool Contractor.
This means the ability to add a custom service to your Google My Business listing is coming online for more business types every day.
