Google Adds New Recycling Attribute to Maximize Business Discovery

TLDR
  • Google has added a new recycling attribute for business profiles, which will enable businesses to raise awareness of their recycling programs, and drive more activity as a result.
Brief

Google notes that ‘recycling” has become one of the most popular Search topics, while supporting eco-conscious brands is a key consideration for 82% of consumers who view sustainability as a top priority. By adding the new recycling attribute to Business Profiles, local storefronts and shops can show the recycling services they offer in just a few clicks - whether it’s for plastic bottles, electronics or glass bottles. Adding this information to the Business Profile, ultimately, can help these businesses to stand out.

The engagement rate per follower on TikTok averages 8% per follower versus 0.09% on Facebook and 1.6% on Instagram. Not only are there more performance advertisers testing out the platform, larger advertisers are spending more.
