Fast Eddys Keys Express To Be Featured in Google’s Home Services Program

Fast Eddys Keys Express is proud to announce that we have been accepted into Google’s New Home Services program.

Starting later this month the page you will see when you do a search for a locksmith in Hennepin County will look different.  And we are happy to report that our business will benefit as a result.

Google will soon be launching its Home Services program in Minneapolis after many months of testing in California and several other cities across the United States.

Unlike the traditional Google Adwords program and the Google 3 pack, participants in the Home Services program first had to be invited by Google to participate and then pass a rigorous accepatance process.

We are pleased to announce that Fast Eddys Keys Express has been invited and has passed their criteria and will be one of 5 Locksmiths accepted into the program in Hennepin County.  We see this as a vindication of sorts and a reward for our many years of providing the community with fast, fairly priced and competent locksmith services.

Certainly helping us in gaining acceptance into the program was our sterling reputation as expressed on many different review sites and in particular on Google itself.  Our 4.9 star rating from over 160 different reviewers did not hurt out application.

We take great pride in the tremednous support we have recieved from our customers. And accept the challenge this new recognition provides us.  The Home Services program requires us to sollicit somewhat more detailed reviews from our customers, on a dedicated review system set up specifically for the Home Services program.

The new review site is at

We encourage all of our recent customers to go ahead and post a review now, as they will help us with the new service.

When the new service launches later this month a Carosel will appear on the top of the search results listing a rotating number of approved providers. For locksmith related searches we will be one of the options.

For some time, we have been disappointed that many of the Google Ads that appeared on the top of the pages, were from scammers and lead generation sites that did not actually provide professional locksmith services. As professionals in the area, we know of many people who were taken advantage of by unscrupuous vendors who gave our indsutry a bad name.

So we are very happy to see this change, not only because it will allow us to serve more people by being more prominent on the search results, but by virtue of the fact that the scammers will hopefully be forced out of the market.

The key motivation for a locksmith is serving peoples personal security needs. This move by Google will help do that and we are very excitied about the change and our ability to participate in the new program.
