Does using the "appointment required" attribute in GBP impact rankings? I don't know if it's still true, but I believe Google used to favor listing businesses that were actually open during the times someone searched. So for example, with all else being equal, will using "appointment required" cause them to rank lower than a competitor who uses "open 24 hours." This is for a van conversion business but I'm curious about it for other categories as well.
Hi Rich, we haven't tested it specifically, but I wouldn't be surprised if it does impact rankings in some shape or form.
