Google Native Service Advertisements With out License Numbers

Google might have eliminated the license quantity from enterprise particulars within the Native Service Advertisements. I checked quite a lot of LSAs and observed that Google will say if a enterprise handed the license examine or not however not listing the license quantity anymore.

Curtis Boyd first noticed this and posted about this on Twitter, and stated “Appears like Google eliminated licensing info from some house service LSA’s together with storage doorways. It used to have the contractor’s license quantity proper on there. Making it even tougher for shoppers to analysis firms.” The talk is that some are saying the license particulars are sometimes unsuitable anyway, so why does it matter. But when Google is verifying the license particulars, then it needs to be legitimate and correct…

In any occasion, he shared this screenshot and once more, I might discover any license quantity in any native service adverts, once I wrote this story (on Friday, September twenty third – sure, I’m offline right this moment).

Clicking to see extra particulars additionally doesn’t present the license quantity.

This web site has an outdated screenshot of when Google did present the license quantity:

Can we care that Google eliminated it? Is it gone ceaselessly or is it a bug?
