Google investigating Local Services Ads bug

February 26, 2024

Google is investigating a Local Services Ads bug that’s causing businesses to appear in search results for their competitors’ names. The issue comes just weeks after the platform started piloting branded Local Service Ads (LSA) called Direct Business Search. This new ad type allows brands to show up in search results when someone directly searches for a brand or business. Although brands are automatically enrolled into Direct Business Search ads by default, you can disable it by manually adjusting the settings for your campaign.
