Search Engine Land reports that Google is offering upgraded Google Business listings with a ‘Google Guaranteed’ badge for 50 dollars per month. As yet, not rolled out in the UK nor officially announced, Google has previously tested the idea of subscription-based services way back in April 2019.
This ‘upgraded’ GMB profile is being introduced in connection with Local Services Ads to “instill greater consumer confidence in the advertised businesses” and ‘has also evolved into a distinct program used to certify local businesses for inclusion in Google Home/Assistant search results’.
