Initial Set-up Requirements for a One-Page Website from Google My Business

  • Your business will need to be verified by Google using one of the following methods:
    • a postcard mailed to your business address
    • a text message sent to your cell phone
    • a phone call to your business phone number
  • You will need to have a Gmail account to work with the Google Business account
NOTE: Your domain name will be something similar to https://yourcompanyname.business.site so you do not need to have a domain name to have a one-page Google My Business website. If you want to purchase a domain name it will cost $12.00/month. With that domain name you will get full access to the G Suite of products. We can discuss your options if you want a domain name.

When deciding to have a one-page website for your small business, you need to understand that there are limitations:

  • Your domain name will be very long. It will be formatted as https://yourcompanyname.business.site so it will take some time to explain your web address to people

  • Have only ONE call-to-action button on the site
  • It’s a one-page website. There is no option to create additional web pages
  • There is a 750 character limit in the one content section that they offer
  • Google critiques your content and if they don’t like it, it will be removed
  • Allows only 9 images to be displayed and they are randomly selected from your photo library
  • The business name, address, phone and hours that are display are supplied from your Google My Business listing and can only be changed from the listing
  • Not able to add external applications (for example, plugins)
  • No ability to add custom page titles or any meta tag information (for SEO)
  • No advanced analytics integration
  • No social sharing buttons
  • Unable to add any alt text to images (for SEO)

Having a Google My Business website doesn’t necessarily improve your ranking on Google. Your website still has to compete with all of the other sites on the web. As mentioned above, though, a one-page website is fast, easy-to-publish and easy to maintain.

If you need more than a one-page website – a website that allows you to express more information about your products and/or services in detail we recommend a new WordPress website. A WordPress site give you more control over your SEO and allows you to connect with your social media sites, to add more features like a home page slider, and to customize the look and feel of the site to suit your needs.
