Let us build your new website before your Google site shuts down in March
Google recently announced that all websites made with its Google Business Profiles will be shut down in just a few weeks (March 2024). Customers and potential customers visiting your site will be redirected to your less detailed Business Profile instead … but only for a few months. On June 10, 2024, the redirect will stop altogether. If you don’t have a new website by June 10th, users will get a “page not found” error when attempting to visit your site.

We hope not, but we understand if so
Google sent an email in early January (see announcement here), but I know that few of us can read all the emails we receive these days. There is too much junk to keep up with, so like countless other small business owners, you likely missed the announcement.
If you are reading this, you likely have a website with an address ending in “business.site” or “negocio.site.”
In March, you will lose one of the key parts of your company’s marketing – your online presence. It is hard to trust a company whose website returns a “Page Not Found” error.
But we are ready and willing to help.
We can help you create a new site quickly, even before the shutdown in March. We can simply duplicate your existing site with the same content and images for $250, or we can work with you to create a new modern, more robust site for $750. We also offer several different options for ongoing hosting, maintenance, and content updates.
We can take care of all the things that you will need to prepare as your current site goes away:
- Register a new domain name of your choosing that you, rather than Google, own
- Duplicate your existing site or build you a modern, more robust site
- Host the new site on secure, cloud-based servers
- Ensure the site looks great on all browsers and platforms including desktops, tablets, and mobile devices
- Maintain backups, 24x7 monitoring, and modern security protocols
- Provide ongoing access to a support team to help with site changes or content updates
Once the new site is launched, it will be key to update the information at your Google Business Profile (formerly called Google My Business), your social media accounts, and your email signature. We can assist with any of these processes.
You can continue using the same email service, such as gmail, but the email records will need to be updated at your domain name registrar in the DNS records. If we are helping you acquire a new domain, we would make that change at that time. Again, we can assist in this process.
Just like you, we are a local business, so we understand the frustration such an abrupt change can cause. We are web developers, so this change is less stressful for us … but if mission-critical services that we rely on went away, we’d be confused too. I hope we can help.
