As a leading figure in the digital landscape, we at Adam Inlay Web Design and Marketing LLC are dedicated to keeping you informed and ahead of the curve. A significant change is on the horizon: Google has announced that websites created through Google Business Profile will be discontinued as of March 1st, 2024. This pivotal shift underscores the importance of choosing a reliable and stable platform for your online presence.
***We don’t want to cause any panic and do want to clarify that Google currently offers two website builder solutions: Google Sites and the Google Business Profile Website (which is the one being discontinued in March).
We also want to clarify that your Google Business Profile is not being discontinued, only the option to create a website with it. Your Google Business Profile account, as a whole, will continue to be an essential asset to your local SEO efforts.***
Why WordPress Over Privately Owned Solutions?
The closure of Google Business Profile websites is a stark reminder of the risks associated with relying on privately owned website-building solutions, such as Google Sites, WIX, Weebly, and GoDaddy Website Builder. These platforms, while user-friendly and convenient, come with a significant caveat – you are at the mercy of their business decisions and changes.
WordPress Allows You Peace of Mind
WordPress, being an open-source platform, stands in contrast to these privately owned solutions. It offers several key advantages:
- You Own Your Content: Unlike other platforms, with WordPress, you retain full ownership of your content. Your website and all its data belong to you.
- Customizability: WordPress offers unparalleled flexibility and customization options, allowing your website to grow and evolve with your business.
- Open-Source Reliability: As an open-source platform, WordPress is maintained by a global community. It’s not subject to the whims of a single entity, ensuring its longevity and stability.
- Extensive Plugin Ecosystem: WordPress boasts a vast repository of plugins, enabling you to add almost any functionality to your site, from SEO optimization to e-commerce capabilities.
