Google Business Profiles (formerly Google My Business) now show the number of years in business, a great feature for local businesses. In this article, I will talk about this feature and how you can add/change “Years In business” on your Google Business Profile.
What is the “Years in business” feature
This feature started to appear in September 2020, but only in February 2021 Google officially launched “Years in business”.
Even though any business can add it, for now, it is only showing for service businesses:
Google Statement: “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 Change “Years in business” on Google
- Sign in to Google Business Profile.
- On the left-hand side menu, click “Info”.
- Almost at the end, you will have “Add opening date”, click on the pencil to edit this field
- Enter your opening date
