Google Local Service Ads, also called, Google Guaranteed or Screened Ads, is a Google Search Campaign where providers are first screened before you can advertise. Consumers can then view Google “screened” providers or view Google “Guaranteed” providers in certain Google Search queries such as, “roofers near me”. The screening process can include license and insurance verification, and a background check. Google Screened vs Guaranteed depends on the industry. For more information, read our post.

Google Guaranteed Advertising Company

With Google Search Ads, Google allows the advertiser to control the individual keywords you are bidding on and advertisers pay per click. With Google Local Service Ads, Google only allows certain industries to advertise. Additionally, Google only allows advertisers to bid on “job types” within their category which you then pay per lead received. For example, a real estate agent could bid on the “rentals”, and “listings”, but not individual keywords.

Moreover, Google Local Service Ads has an advantage over Google Search in that it is more simple to start, enhances your advertisement with a Google Guaranteed or Screened Badge, and you pay per lead rather than per click.

Google Guaranteed & Screened are both verification processes in which providers must apply through Google Ads. Google Screened is only a verification status from Google where providers have to prove they are licensed (if their state requires it), insured(if their state requires it), and can pass a background check. Google Guaranteed is a verification status like Google Screened, but the consumer can be refunded by Google if the consumer is not satisfied with the provider’s work. Google Guaranteed is only available for certain locations and industries. Google Screened is only available for certain locations and industries as well.

Optimizing Google Local Service Ads

Once set up, it may take a few weeks to get approved/verified. After you are approved, you can begin showing ads.
To optimize performance, it’s best practice to check your account weekly. You should upload business photos/videos, ensure your business information is accurate, and carefully track calls and messages.
Lastly, in order to get the best performance, you will want a solid review request platform and review management. Generally, the most leads go to the companies with the most 5-star reviews with Google. With our marketing automation platform, you can optimize your review requests!
