Starting with local service ads? Here’s what you need to know

Advantages of local service advertising

Google ranks high.

Find customers who are looking for your service and have the potential to book.

Only pay for leads related to your company and services.

Only those of you who have specially selected your profile will contact you.

The difference between an LSAs review and a GMB review

LSA reviews can be found in two ways: either directly from the LSA profile or from the GMB list linked to the LSA. You do not need to have a GMB listing to run LSA ads. However, in order for your LSA ad to show, you’ll need at least three reviews, whether it’s a GMB review or an LSA review.

Your LSA account can be linked to your GMB listing if you have reviews. Your GMB listing may require reviews from your clients if there are no reviews.

Your LSA ad doesn’t need to have a GMB listing to go live. A custom URL for LSA review is provided by Google for your LSA profile, which you can send to your clients.

You must have an average rating of at least 3.0 / 5.0 from all your reviews, be it on your GMB profile or your LSA profile.

It’s convenient to add LSA reviews to your GMB profile, regardless of whether you have a corresponding GMB profile.

You will be protected if your GMB profile is suspended or removed if you have a local service ad review. When your GMB profile disappears, your GMB reviews will also disappear, leaving your ad without any reviews or ratings. You will then violate the LSA requirement that at least one is being reviewed. LSAs are monitored by the Google review team, and if your GMB profile has not been restored or you have not previously had a direct LSA review, your ad will be removed. If your GMB profile is removed or suspended, you will continue to run your LSA ads when you review LSA.

By providing a job booked through your LSA, you can label your LSA reviews as “Google Verified Jobs”. GMB will not allow you to label your LSA reviews as fake.

LSA reviewers can post their reviews anonymously, which can be valuable for certain types of clients, for example, criminal defendants. LSA verified reviews are shown above GMB reviews, regardless of when the review was posted.

Why are reviews important for LSAs?

Consumers spend an average of 13 minutes and 45 seconds reading reviews before deciding to buy. Let’s talk about why reviews are important for LSAs.

Reviews are usually important. Positive reviews can enhance your credibility and build client confidence. People can also decide if they want to hire you based on customer reviews.

The number of reviews on your LSA is one of the seven ranking factors that determine how your LSA looks and performs. LSA ranking is determined by both your review rating and the number of reviews you receive. The higher your rating and the more reviews you get, the more likely you are to convert your lead through Google’s Local Services Ads.

Verified LSA reviews take precedence over GMB reviews, that is, they appear on top of GMB reviews regardless of posting date.

Verified LSA reviews should be preferred

When your LSA ad features a number of ratings and reviews, the first thing that professionals see when researching your firm on Google is the number of ratings and reviews. In the review section of your LSA business profile, potential clients can read more detailed reviews of your firm. Review is a defining reason for clients’ decision about which lawyer or law firm to hire in addition to LSA ranking. Dont underestimate the importance of getting more and better reviews. Law firms with LSA ads should prioritize Google verified job reviews through their LSA account rather than seeking Google verified job reviews for their GMB profiles.

How to get LSA reviews?

Your clients can give you reviews in several ways:

Reviews from verified LSA clients

Available via the LSA Account app or desktop dashboard: Sign in to your LSA account (desktop or app) to invite your clients to review a verified LSA client. You will then ask your clients to enter a review by entering their e-mail addresses.

Using your lead page: Mark your leads as booked and authorize Google to send a link to give your client a verified LSA review. If your client agrees to receive this email request from Google, you must provide their email address.

From the review page: On the “Review” page, click the “Ask for review” button (you can click on the relevant link next to each task). If you choose this option, you’ll need to provide your client’s email address and ensure that your client has agreed to accept this email request from Google. (Available only in the United States and Canada)

Reviews from unverified clients

From LSA Business Profile: Ask clients who haven’t booked through your LSA for review. By clicking “Add a review” in the “Reviews” section of your LSA business profile, they can make a review.

Using Google’s LSA Custom URL: Your clients will receive direct links to your Google LSA custom URL.
