Google Now Suggests Directories for Finding Tradesman in Search Results

Just this week, Google (UK) has started suggesting well known and reputable trades directories such as Checkatrade and RatedPeople in their search results when someone is searching for a tradesman. Upon clicking one of these, it takes you directly to the tradesman search in that location on that website.

If you provide a trade to your local area, it’s definitely worth ensuring your business is listed on the likes of these websites to ensure you get seen by potential customers should they immediately leave the Google search results onto one of these directory websites.

Check the recording below for an overview of how this looks.
