Google My Business is launching secondary hours for drive-through and pick up
What is Google My Business?
Google My Business is a free tool that allows you as a business owner you manage how your local business appears across Google search and map results.
Google states: “If you run a business that serves customers at a particular location, or you serve customers within a designated service area, Google My Business can help people find you. Verified businesses on Google are twice as likely to be considered reputable by users.
Imagine yourself in the shoes of a potential customer. This customer is three blocks from your storefront and looking for exactly what you do best in the neighborhood—maybe they’ve seen your sign or heard about your business from a friend. If they search for your services on Google, what will they find?
Maintaining your business presence on Google My Business can help customers discover the products and services you provide, contact you, and find your location.”
Google My Business is launching secondary hours for certain categories including drive-through hours and pick up hours
During this global pandemic of COVID-19, Google has just announced that Google My Business is releasing a new feature into accounts that will allow business owners to add secondary hours to their listing. This allows businesses such as cafes, restaurants and shops to add special hours for things such as drive-through, delivery hours, visiting hours, takeout hours, and pick-up hours.
In Google search engine results page, this information will then appear in the Location Panel under Hours with a link See more hours. When customers click on this link, it opens up a modal with more expandable hours for each type of listing.
