Hello,

RideLink is a P2P car rental platform where users rent cars from people around them. Since we are the largest P2P car rental platform in UK. I was wondering if I can bulk upload our car listings to google my business using the template provided as these car listings are essentially individual businesses that helps users generate income through their cars.

It also helps add value to 'micro-moments' of google so the users will be able to hire cars near them enabling google to deliver value added services through their search.

Happy to provide any additional information you may need. Please let me know if I can proceed with sharing the car businesses on google my business.

Thanks!

Good morning Tejaswi,

This is an interesting situation. My first thought is that what you are trying to do here isn't within Google's guidelines. Then again "In order to qualify for a Google my Business listing, a business must make in-person contact with customers during its stated hours." I think I need a bit more information. 

These homeowners that are renting out their car, are they:

a) home all day to make in-person communication?

b) using P2P car rental platform signage somewhere on their property?

 

Do you have an example listing, I'm curious to see the business is being represented.

I'm also going to ping my colleague she is very VERY knowledgeable when it comes to Google My Business @JoyHawkins . The last thing we want to do is have numerous listings out there that shouldn't be, and at the same time, we want to help you with the issue. If you can get back to me with that info I can look into a little further.

Kyle is right. This wouldn't qualify as a business listing as these are listings for cars, not business locations.

Okay, thanks for clarifying on this matter! I hope some day there's a
google product that we can leverage on to fully showcase the magnitude of
the sharing economy so services like ours would help more users and help
make optimal use of other services like "micro moments".
Thank you for looking into this.
Cheers,
Tejaswi S

You can do this through AdWords currently.
