Google My Business Launches Website Builder Globally

Earlier in the year, Google were testing a website builder for Google My Business customers. Google has now officially launched this tool, which is now available worldwide for businesses within Google My Business. The Google Business website is a single page, mobile friendly site that can be created in less than 10 minutes

What can the tool do?

Using Google my business, local businesses can easily and quickly create a mobile optimised website at no cost. The new tool provides editable website templates for small businesses that are created from their photos and data on Google Maps.

As long as businesses have a Google My Business page, the data for opening times, driving directions, photos and business name will be automatically added to the web page. Google uses these listings to build and design the site, ensuring their website is found in Google Search and Maps.

The tool allows you to connect directly with your customers by telling them what you want them to do next. For example, the website will enable them to call your business, book an appointment or sign up to your mailing list. You can also choose a design theme to suit your brand ensuring you stand out online.

Mobile friendly – the website can be created and edited from your phone and is easy to manage.

Create a well-designed site in less than 10 minutes – Google uses your listings to build the site and takes care of design.

Easy to manage – the tool, name “Website” is located in the Google My Business Dashboard meaning you can manage everything in one place from either your mobile or computer.
