Has anyone seen or heard anything about this? I'm familiar with Google Guaranteed for ads (our clients still on the waitlist or whatever 🤷‍♀️) but first I've ever heard anything about a GMB subscription. Has anyone been involved in survey, Google's experiment, or is this live for anyone? Really innnnteresting.....

I looked up pest control in our area and found the major companies like Terminix have it while the smaller ones do not.

Here's the link to what I get when I look up pest control

When I click '10+ pest control technicians nearby' I get this page. All the green checkmarks are on the top list with a separator bar and then the ones without the green marks.

Attached is a response I got from support, looks like something that'll be rolled out to more whenever they feel like it?

Has anyone heard anything further about this?

I noticed two of the same type of trade contractors in my area now have the google guaranteed logo on there normal GMB listing. I can’t find anything for me to sign up for it. I use Local Services ads and I am google guaranteed. I was actually the first in my area.

Could be these new $50/month "upgraded" GMBs. I would also check your categories and compair them with your competeiors, they could have a cat that is eligible for GG.

That's exactly what I am looking for, the $50 paid option that we have been hearing about.

FWIW, those contractors no longer have the Google Guaranteed badge next to their GMB listing so I guess it's still being tested.

Yes, this is still being tested so you may see GMB listings with the Google Guaranteed badge for businesses that aren't actually paying $50/month for the GMB upgrade.

There are businesses that are in the $50/month program but it is still a small amount at this point.
