All businesses in select categories within Philadelphia are now able to apply for Home Services ads, provided they pass an extensive screening process.

The complete list of cities eligible to apply for Home Services Ads includes:

  • San Francisco Bay Area

  • Philadelphia

With several new business categories being eligible to apply for Home Services ads, the complete list now includes:

  • Plumber

  • Handyman
  • Contractor
  • Electrician
  • General Contractor
  • Painter

As a Home Services Ads customer, not only is there the possibility of having ads featured prominently at the top of the SERPs, but it comes with a sense of prestige.

Due to the strict qualifying criteria advertisers need to meet in order to publish Home Services Ads, they’re also a badge of trust.

Home Services Ads send a message to searchers that Google considers a business to be a credible service provider.
