Google My Business, otherwise known as where we typically edit our Google Maps listing, has recently released a new Appointments URL option that will appear in Google search and maps results. This option is automatically enabled for eligible businesses though if you happen to have an website or business that accepts online appointments or reservations you can present your website to Google using this form.

To see if this feature is enabled log into your Google My Business account > navigate to your information section > then scroll toward the bottom and you will see the option under your website’s URL.google maps appointment url new feature august 2017

It seems like a very helpful addition though I’m curious if this new feature will help increase our business’ appointment lead volumes or if it will just further the decay of our need of personal websites if we can use Google Maps and a third-party tool for online appointments and reservations?
