LONDON–()–GoDaddy, the world’s largest cloud platform dedicated to small
independent ventures, today announced that its Website Builder will be
the first in the UK to integrate with Google My Business. The new
integration allows small business owners to get found more easily on
Google search results, giving businesses another way to create powerful
online identities and engage with customers, beyond their website’s
pages.

Google My Business is a free and easy-to-use tool for businesses to
manage their online presence across Google, including Search and Maps.
By creating a business listing, verifying and editing their business
information, publishing posts promoting a special offer or event, or
replying to reviews, businesses can more easily attract new customers
and engage with existing ones. With the new integration, small business
owners can easily create and submit a Google My Business listing while
building a website on Website Builder. Additionally, users can read and
respond to reviews directly from their Website Builder dashboard.

“It is increasingly important for small businesses to be found on Google
and attract potential customers who are searching for their type of
business. At GoDaddy we continually explore new products, technology and
innovation to help small businesses connect with their customers,” said
Justin Tsai, VP Product Management for GoDaddy. ” Website Builder’s new
integration with Google My Business, helps UK small businesses to be
more easily found in Google search results with space dedicated to quick
information about their business.”

GoDaddy’s US customers have had access to Google My Business for a while
and have demonstrated the power of the integration. In the first half of
2018 over 10,000 businesses created business listings through Google My
Business using GoDaddy’s Website Builder. On average the listing of each
business was viewed 1,637 times during those six months, resulting in
customers interacting with the business and its website, whether through
clicks and calls, getting directions to the storefront or leaving
reviews.

The Google My Business integration is the latest addition to Website
Builder’s expanding capabilities for building a powerful online
presence. GoDaddy Website Builder enables people to build a
professional, mobile-optimized website in under an hour. After building
a website with Website Builder, customers can then drive traffic and
engagement with its integrated marketing features for SEO, social media
and email marketing.
