The Business.Site is a free Google tool that functions as a website for your Google My Business profile. It contains your posts, photos, NAP details, and contact information. It is not to be confused with the Google Site (sites.google.com).
Maximize the use of your GMB Site by:
- Replacing the default URL of the Business.Site (website provided within GMB or GMB Site).
b. Redirecting to it.
After hearing lots of complaints from clients about the long and ugly URL of the Business.Site (GMB Site), DigitalBull GO was looking at ways to circumvent the long URL while also deriving some advantage from it.
This is not a tip on how to rank the Business.Site but how you can use an extra domain at your disposal or use a second domain without letting it fall into your competitor’s arms.
#2A – You can connect a domain purchased from Google Domains and this will automatically replace the default Business.Site URL. So, if you are torn between apexgaragedoor.com and apexgaragedoors.com, you can use one for your website and the other for the Business.Site. However, please note that your domain must have been purchased from Google Domains. Alternatively, transfer them to Google Domains from your existing registrar.
#2B – Redirecting of old but high authority domains has been in the news recently. If you have seen rankings tank or just not wanting to redirect your extra domain to your website, you can redirect it to the Business.Site instead.
