Google Local Services Ads FAQs
What are Google Local Services Ads?
Google Local Services Ads (LSAs) are an advertising option offered by Google specifically for local service-related business. Businesses who use LSAs display a green check mark next to their ad indicating they are Google Guaranteed. The Google Guarantee lets potential customers know that the business has been thoroughly vetted by Google and is a professional service they can trust. Perhaps the best part about LSAs is that you only pay when a potential customer calls your business and you speak with them.
How do Local Services Ads work?
When first setting up your ads, you determine the geographic location and services that you want your ad to show up for. Then when someone searches for the services you offer on Google, your ad is then eligible to show at the top of search results. If someone clicks on your ad, they are taken your company’s profile where they can call the phone number to your business that displays. If a potential customer calls your business and a conversation takes place, this is then considered a lead.
