Google Service Area Features Improved

On 02nd Nov, Google’s Community Manager, Kara Jancourtz announced that they are making improvements to provide better support for service area of business.

Previously, in GMB, both store front & service area businesses had only a single field in their GMB accounts to enter their business address & to set their service area as shown in the below image.

GMB Old

Businesses who serve their customers at their locations had to select yes and had to enter details. They could set their service area as a distance around their business location. And once they filled up the details, it used to appear like,

GMB Old

But with the recent changes, Google has set the service area as a separate field. So, now you’ve two fields; business address field & Service Area field.

GMB New

With these changes, Google has made some modifications how you include your service area info.

Now, you can’t set the service area as a distance around your location. If you did it previously, you can no longer modify it.

And, now you can only set your service area based on the regions, cities or ZIP codes but no distance.
