Websites made with Google Business Profiles are turned off

As of March 5, 2024, websites made with Google Business Profiles are no longer available and customers that visit your site will be redirected to your Business Profile instead. Learn how to find your profile.

Your customers will only be redirected to your Business Profile until June 10, 2024. After that, customers will get a “Page not found” error when they try to visit your website. If you’d like to continue to have a website for your business, you can create a new website with other tools. Then, update your Business Profile with the new website address.

Tips:

  • Domains that end with business.site and negocio.site have been removed from the website field on your Business Profile. We recommend you update your Google Business Profile with a new website.
  • Other than that, your Business Profiles aren’t affected. 
  • If you don’t have a website made with a Google Business Profile, the changes mentioned in this article won’t affect you.

As a reminder, your Business Profile is a great place to:

  • Showcase your business
  • Share important information, updates, and links to other social platforms
  • Use photos to attract customers
  • Let customers know how to contact you through messages or by adding your phone number

Manage Ads campaign connected to your website

Starting March 5, 2024, ads that are linked to a website made with Google Business Profile may be disapproved and stop running. This is because the domain in the ads display URL will not match the final URL. Learn more about ads destination requirements. To keep your ads running, learn more about how to create a website or landing page for your ads

You can also pause your campaigns.

Manage your third-party domains

If you've been using a custom domain name to forward traffic to the website made with your Google Business Profile, customers who visit this domain will be redirected to your Business Profile. The redirect will only work until June 10, 2024. Sign in to your hosting company account and choose a “Redirect” option or similar, to forward your third-party domain to a different website before June 10, 2024.
