Agencies: How to get started on Google

Note: This guide will help you determine whether your client is connected to Google and eligible for hotel booking links. It is intended for agencies helping to manage a hotel’s online presence with Google, but who do not provide technical connectivity for rates and availability.

If your business doesn't fit this description, don’t worry. There are alternative ways to get started on Google.

With free booking links and hotel ads, there are now more options to reach the millions of travelers searching for hotels on Google every day. Help your clients achieve their business goals and provide them with measurable results to make insight-led decisions.

First, you’ll need to ensure the properties you represent are providing their business information, rates, and availability to Google.

There are currently two ways your clients can connect their rates with Google:

  • Direct integration - Using the Google Connectivity API
  • Third-party integration - Using a third-party integration partner (fees for services may be charged)

Note: If you plan on providing the technical connection for prices and availability to Google for your client, please review the connectivity partner guide.
