Google Local Service Ads

Google is starting to enter the professional and local services market in a new way, and this is going to have profound implications for people who provide such services.

This is more of an Uber-style model, where Google will serve as a clearinghouse to directly connect customers with businesses. However, the way that it does so will be opaque, so it will be allowed to manipulate prices. This could result in major price pressure and lower wages for professionals.
