Businesses wanting to maintain their online presence will need to rebuild their sites using any 3rd party platform.
Websites made with Google Business Profiles will be turned off in March 2024
Customers attempting to visit your website will then be automatically redirected to your Business Profile until June 10, 2024. Beyond this date, visitors will encounter a “page not found” error, Google announced.
WHAT TO DO NOW: Google offers free websites for businesses but the functions are very limited to those websites, if businesses need the website for their business they might need a 3rd party Website developer or their own hosting & Domain name.

Ad campaign issues. If your Ads campaign is linked to a website from Google Business Profile, either change the link before March 1 to keep your ads running or choose to pause your campaigns.
Third-party domains. If you’ve set up a custom domain to direct traffic to your Google Business Profile website, visitors to this domain will be redirected to your Business Profile until June 10. To manage this transition, log in to your hosting company account and select the “Redirect” option or a similar feature to reroute your third-party domain to a different website before the specified date.
What Google is saying. A Google told:
- “Websites made with Google Business Profiles are basic websites powered by the information on your Business Profile.”
- “Domains that end with business.site and negocio.site will be removed from the website field on your Business Profile in March 2024. We recommend that you update your Google Business Profile to point to a new custom website.”
