Google will now display holiday hours

Nov 03, 2015 | | 8 |

Google announced yesterday a great new feature for businesses: the ability to input special holiday hours for your business.  Now, you will be able to schedule holiday hours for your business up to a year in advance, meaning that your customers will have access to the most up to date information about the dealership.

You can now input special holiday hours on Google!

Google’s change comes at an important time for business owners, given the increase of rich answers that Google provides in search results.   A “rich answer” is when Google will answer the search query with the information requested without requiring a click through to the website.  So when someone goes to Google looking for your hours, the information is displayed right in the search results.  Given this change, having the chance to tell Google your holiday hours is more important than ever.
