Tried to add Website URL to GMB - Shows up Red with Red Strike-through

I finally went live with our website (Hosted by Godaddy). Logged into my GMB account, tried to add the URL to our website, and it shows up Red with a Red Strike-through. I tried to add it a week ago. I am not getting any error stats from Search Console. Any help appreciated. Thanks

"Giving help" means in oyur case escalating it my way to Google

But I can't do this based on your lack of any concrete info about the affected business listing and the website in question

Sorry about that. Before I posted, I read you should not give information specific to yourself. The Website I created, had GoDaddy host, and is working fine (Crollinsurance.com). When I try to add it to my GMB Profile, the URL shows up Red with a Red Strike-Through. Thanks

Unfortunately that is not the case. I created the HTML site and had GoDaddy Host it and the site is working fine.

@Kurt C

 

please confirm you're talking about this verified listing https://goo.gl/maps/Uq2uPKj3nNB2

 

If this isn't your GMB listing provide any better link to the listing not accepting your mentioned website.

Based on this info I am able to escalate it as an issue to Google

Hi Helmut. Thanks again for the help, but unfortunately my website has not been added and when I log into GMB and try to edit my Business Info, the Website still shows up Red with a Red Strike-Through.
