Big changes are coming for businesses using Google Business Profile (GBP) websites. Google has announced that starting March 1, 2024, these websites will be phased out, with existing sites being redirected to the business’s Google Business Profile. This change could significantly impact your online presence if your business currently relies on a GBP website.

What’s Happening?

In the past, Google offered a feature allowing businesses to create simple websites directly from their Business Profile information. This user-friendly option provided a basic online presence for many small businesses. However, Google has decided to discontinue this feature. From March 1, 2024, customers attempting to visit these sites will be redirected to the corresponding Business Profiles, and by June 10, 2024, these sites will become unavailable.

Why this Matters:

Your website is often the first point of contact for potential customers. It’s where they get a sense of your brand, explore your services, and decide whether to engage with your business. A well-designed, fully functional website is essential for establishing credibility and attracting customers.
