We all know what an important role search engines play in our day-to-day lives, especially Google with over 70% of the search market share and 85% of mobile traffic, it is undoubtedly the most popular search engine.
The large traffic potential makes claiming your business on Google a no-brainer especially with new attributes that you can use to make your Google My Business listing stand out in search results.
Attributes in a Google My Business profile are designed to grab searchers’ attention by highlighting important service offerings.
For example, with many businesses still being forced to remain closed due to the pandemic, there’s been a shift toward offering new dining options. Therefore, the GMB team has added the following attributes you can add to your business listing.

Similarly, people are also seeking online alternatives to services they can no longer access in person - including doctors, fitness instructors, therapists, etc. So the following attributes are also now available.
