Google Makes Changes to GMB Listings With Distance-Based Service Areas

September 06, 2019 / Matt Southern

Google is going to automatically apply changes to Google My Business listings with distance-based service areas. The last remaining distance-based service areas are going to be removed. Going forward, service-area businesses currently based on a distance will be automatically converted to the closest named areas. Managers of Google My Business listings affected by this change will have the opportunity to review these updates after logging into their account. If your listing is affected by this change you’ll see an “Updates from Google” notification at the top of the page next time you log in. From there, you’ll have the option to either accept the changes made by Google or provide a new service area based on city, ZIP code, or other areas.
