7 months ago admin Comments Off on Google Maps Lets Businesses Promote Themselves as Women-Led
Businesses can now describe themselves in Google Maps listings as being owned, led or founded by women, the Alphabet unit announced Wednesday. The feature would roll out this week in celebration of International Women’s Day, on March 8, Google said in a blog post. Users would see the new descriptor alongside details in business listings that say whether shops have offerings such as kosher food, outdoor seating and Wi-Fi. An icon with the female gender symbol would appear prominently on the listing, according to a screenshot in the blog post.
