About direct business search​

Direct business search helps you to reach specific customers by showing your Local Services ad in search results for your brand or business. You can use direct business search in conjunction with other Local Services Ads features to reach the right customers and showcase what makes your business unique.

How will my ad show up​

When someone searches for your brand or business directly on Google, your Local Services Ad will be eligible to appear. Your ad will be the only Local Services ad to appear in the results, and you'll only be charged for leads from new customers.

How call leads will be charged from these searches​

Google screens calls that are connected via this ad. Callers will be asked if they’re a returning customer. If they indicate they are a returning customer, you will not be charged for the lead.
