Google my Business has released an update which is aiming to help those who have had their ‘normal’ opening hours affected by recent events.

This update allows you to add secondary hours to the business’ Google my Business listing. This is especially important for those businesses who are now running special hours for pensioners, key workers or a particular service such as click and collect.

You can have your ‘normal’ hours showing as ‘Closed’ and then have further hours below for your specific needs.

To gain access to this feature head to your Google my Business account and bring up the location that you wish to amend. Click on 'Info' and then next to 'More Hours' click on 'Edit'. Click on the type of hours that are applicable and click on 'Apply'.

Detailed instructions with screenshots of the process can be found here - SearchEngineLand.com/google-my-business-offers-more-flexibility-with-business-hours

Please note that Google has stated that the feature won’t be available to all right away so if you don’t see it yet then check back later.
