Google My Business listings are showing the number of years in business.

Even though, this feature started to appear in September 2020, only today Google officially launched “Years in business”, and apparently is only available to service businesses:

“Add an opening date to your Business Profile to tell customers when your business first opened, or will open, at its address. Learn how to add an opening date.

While the “Opening date” feature is available to all businesses, eligible services businesses may find the “Years in Business” label in Search.

How to add “years in business” to your Google My Business Listing

From where is Google taking this info?

Opening date field in your Google My Business account:

– Go to the “Info” section

Update

If the business hasn’t filled out this field in the Google My Business dashboard, Google is defaulting to showing that the business has been open for less than a year
