Google is robotically including a massive “Request a Quote” button to eligible enterprise listings in search outcomes.
Joy Hawkins was first to spot this function and he or she shared a screenshot on Twitter:

The button additionally seems in cellular search outcomes when the enterprise identify is looked for.
I, together with others, can replicate this function which implies it’s not simply a check. However, it’s restricted to sure enterprise listings.
Specifically, companies which have opted into the Google My Business messaging function could have the “request a quote” button added to their itemizing
You can activate messaging for your enterprise itemizing by following the steps beneath:
- Open the Google My Business app.
- Open the placement you’d like to handle.
- Tap Customers.
- Tap Messages.
- Tap Turn on.
Messages obtained from prospects may be seen and responded to from the Google My Business app. Users will obtain messages on their Google Maps app.
This has the potential to generate extra leads for companies. Although it additionally does what Google has been usually criticized for doing – which is conserving folks in Google.
Searchers can now request quotes from companies with out ever visiting the enterprise’s web site. It can all be accomplished inside Google’s companies.
Clearly, that’s not nice for visitors. But the aim of a enterprise web site, for essentially the most half, is to generate leads.
So is it a unhealthy factor if Google sends leads with out the visitors?
That’s up to the person enterprise proprietor to decide. But it’s one of many extra fascinating features of this replace that isn’t getting talked about.
