In Local Services by Google, you can choose the days of the week and the times of the day to run your ad. For example, you can set your ad to run during regular business hours or when you can respond to customer calls in a timely manner. You can also set your ad to 'paused' to stop it from displaying, regardless of your schedule. Switching it back 'on' will resume displaying it according to the ad schedule that you've chosen.
If it's outside of your scheduled hours or your ad is paused, a free version of your listing may be displayed.
