Anyone else get this bananas questionnaire from GMB today about updated features and pricing for those features? #GMB #Maps #LocalSEO

The full survey can be accessed here. It takes a little while to complete so give yourself some time if you plan to go through it.

The survey starts by asking some qualifying questions to learn how much money your business typically spends on advertising per year.

Part-way through, the survey introduces you to possible new Google My Business features that the company is considering rolling out as premium offerings.

All remaining questions in the survey relate to these features, as it asks users to select what they’re most and least interested in.

New features listed in the survey include:

  • Google customer support
  • “Book” button on your business profile
  • Promote your “Book” button
  • Verified reviews
  • Promoted map pin
  • Call reports and recordings
  • Verified bookings
