Google Maps SERP API has been improved and some upcoming changed are planned.
- We have added the main image featured in Google My Business profile for every Google Maps listing:
- The category of business activity is now returned for every item in the response:
"category": "City tax office"
- We are going to change the structure of the
"work_hours"array and start supporting the working hours in the format indicated on this screenshot.
If a given business entity indicated the lunch break, Google shows two separate time ranges for every day. This case hasn’t been covered by DataForSEO SERP API, but from 16/12/2020 we will start returning new structure of the “work_hours” element.
Make sure you apply the changes before the update goes live. For your convenience, I attached the sample with a new structure below. Also, you can specify the following parameter when setting a task to receive updated response before the actual release (before 16/12/2020):
In this case, we will return the new structure with extended working hours.
Feel free to contact customer support team for further clarification.
