Google my business website

I just came across this new feature in google my business. Publishing my website. I'm not entirely sure what is the purpose. Is it meant to replace our website ? Or just the search engine landing page ? 

I'm hesitant to you use or publish it not knowing the effect it may have.  It already hard to keep up with the constant changes so any help would be very much appreciated.

HI @Jacob O

 

the feature was developped and is mostly intended for small businesses in poor countries  not yet having a website  and to spent the cost and effort to develop an own website or to hire a webdisigner to built a website for the bsuiness.

Since you have a website already you are free to not using  the new feature.

If you do use it, make sure you go back in and put in your website because it auto updates your GMB website URL.
