A “join waitlist” button has been added by Google to selected local restaurant profiles pages. Canadian SEO Sergey Alakov spotted the new functionality, which is provided by DineTime. In order for the restaurant to participate, they must have a DineTime account.
You’ll find the button in the same location as “reserve a table.” It isn’t clear if there are going to be two buttons, then, where waitlist functionality is also enabled.
If you click on the join waitlist button, a screen will open, identifying the current wait time, enabling users to input their party size. The following screen then confirms the user’s contact info. Users will then receive a text updating them on their status.
