Google Local Panel Ad For Lawyers

Google has been showing some ads in a local panel listing for years now, even sometimes showing a local listing with a competitors ad smack on top of it. But Ben Fisher said he has spotted, for the first time, an ad on a lawyer’s local listing in the Google search result.

Ben posted on Twitter saying he saw “A lawyer ad on a lawyer profile. We saw this before with an auto dealer, but I confirmed with my colleagues that this may be new for lawyers. It is interesting that they would bid on their own GMB profile.”

Here is the screen shot:
