HomeAdvisor teams up with Google

It will be possible to book appointments through Google search results

Golden-based HomeAdvisor, a leading nationwide online home services marketplace, is partnering with Google to allow homeowners to book appointments with home service professionals through Google search results. HomeAdvisor is the first and only digital home services marketplace selected by Google to power online appointment booking on Google Places’ business profiles.

The booking functionality will integrate directly within Google Places’ business profiles of the pre-screened home professionals in HomeAdvisor’s nationwide network. Users will see a “Book Now” option on the profile and will be able to schedule an appointment with that professional through HomeAdvisor’s Instant Booking technology. Instant Booking, launched earlier this year, allows homeowners to schedule appointments on-demand for more than 500 home projects from plumbing to remodeling to landscaping.

HomeAdvisor has the largest network of active, screened and approved service professionals in the category. Professionals in the HomeAdvisor pre-screened network must pass a rigorous criminal and financial background screening prior to being accepted into the exclusive network. In the last 12 months, HomeAdvisor has received more than nine million project requests from homeowners to find a pre-screened service professional.
