Earlier this year, Google was beta testing a website builder for Google My Business customers. Well, that tool is now available globally for any business within Google My Business.

Marissa Nordahl announced it in a Google My Business Help thread yesterday. She said "we know that getting a website can still be a challenge for a lot of small business owners around the world: too complex, too expensive, too time consuming." Google said 60% of small businesses do not even have a web site!

Google launched this website builder to help, she wrote:

Website is a free tool that allows small business owners to create a simple, striking website in just a few minutes. It’s easy, and you can create and edit your new website from your computer or your phone!

Here is what you see when you click on the website builder in Google My Business:

And within seconds, it automatically made me a web site that I can then customize:

Mike Blumenthal has a lot more detail on this release.
