On Wednesday, Google LLC., the Alphabet Inc.-owned world’s No. 1 internet service provider had phased in new advertisement features aimed at assisting local businesses to receive more attention and to recover from the pandemic-driven economic slump.
In point of fact, Google LLC.’s latest ad features came a day after the US retail sales had reported a record surge in May after having been battered in March and April due to the pandemic-led forced closures. More importantly, Google had also told on Wednesday that people across the world had been looking for local services such as carpet cleaning or air conditioning repair on their mobile phones, however, a majority of the offline business owners in the third-world still do not have a website so that Google could trace them.
Nonetheless, the Mountain View, CA-based online advertising industry mogul and the search engine giant, had also added on its Wednesday’s statement that people who were looking for local services, would now be able to book services directly through Google LLC.
