Hi @Joao A

 

Have just searched for your business - https://goo.gl/maps/xBjBnWtkngn

The website I'm seeing "cafelincs.co.uk" looks to be the same as the one you've referenced "http://www.cafelincs.co.uk/"

 

Am not understanding the problem - can you explain in more detail and add screen shots?

Hi Margaret,

 

Thanks for getting back to me.

 

My website is www.cafelincs.co.uk                            

 

On Google my business it is coming up like this.  https://cafelincs.business.site/?m=true     

 

I can't change it.                                                           

 

 

Kind regards,

 

 

 

Luis Araujo

 

Service engineer.

Hi @Luis A

 

Am thinking there's some confusion here - 

The website option you see on the left side of your GMB menu is a free website that Google offers most GMB listings. All of those sites end in .business.site.

You do not have to use that website, or publish it. It is useful for businesses that have no website.

 

There is another option for website in the info section of your listing - and that is what is used in the "website" button unless you tell . At present, that is going to the site you're wanting.

This other website link that ends in business.site can be changed a little bit - you can partially edit the URL at time of publishing. Just click on the pencil next to the domain name and it should publish. If someone else has the URL, you will receive an error message.

You can also change the URL once the site is published by going to "more" then "update" then fill in the blank.  Be careful with the tickbox below the line - this will overwrite the existing website URL in the info panel.

Does that clear things up?
