New Google Search Tool Will Help Find Trusted, Verified Home Service People
Getting things fixed is a pain in the neck. Especially if you’re planning to get it done online. There are hundreds of options, especially if you’re in an urban area – which one do you choose? who do you trust? Safety is one of the biggest concerns that bothers people before finally choosing a home service company. However, a new Google Search Tool is making that easier.
This new addition to Google Search will now show you trusted and verified companies and home service people who have no criminal record and are known to be experts at what they do. Google is providing a verified ‘badge of trust’ in front of such companies.
This will ensure that the people you let into your house to fix your plumbing, or to repair your garage, etc. are safe to work with and are not con artists trying to break into your home. The Google Local Services program does a background check on all employees, which includes criminal record, proper licensing and insurances.
Moreover, Google is so confident on this new Local Services program that they are even offering a money-back guarantee if the contractor messes up. This has been termed as ‘Google Guarantee’ and the money will be returned to you straight via Google. Google is really confident on this program and it is expected to reach 30 US cities by the end of the year.
Google will ensure that companies which have a better reputation, good service and are known for honest employees rank better on search. The verified badges automatically give a boost in credibility to these contractors.
This is indeed a good service from Google and a step towards better advertising. This will ensure that dishonest, overcharging companies who are not known for their service do not make way to the top of search rankings by means of promoting via Google ads as they won’t be given the badge of honor.
