Google’s anticipated program to promote local service providers in search ads is on the way. The company has confirmed a beta test for the program just launched in the San Francisco market.
Buzzfeed first reported the home services solution was in the works in April. Taking on the likes of Yelp, Angie’s List and Amazon Home Services, Google’s home services ads promote pre-qualified home service professionals and enable users to submit requests to the providers straight from the search ads.
Test enables users to review providers and submit requests to up to three service professionals from the ads.
