Google Gives Small Businesses Free Websites

Small business owners in Georgia and South Carolina are the latest to gain access to Google’s “Get Your Business Online” program. Launched in July, the program is designed to increase small businesses’ online visibility . Google, along with its partners, will help small business owners build a free 3-page website; provide a free custom domain name and hosting for one year; and list the business on Google Places at no cost. It’s supposed to be really easy, too. Once you sign up, you will be given access to an online website design program powered by Intuit. After choosing a template, you can change colors, add photos and information, and complete basic customizations. The site will then be published at your chosen domain for all to see. Other tools — both online and in-person — are also available to help business owners make the most of their new websites. There’s information on how to integrate the site with AdWords, Google+ and mobile phones. As of this writing, Get Your Business Online is available to small businesses located in Vermont, Michigan, Oklahoma, Utah, Minnesota and a few other states. Google plans to roll out the program nationwide, a few states at a time. To see if you qualify, you can check the program website . You can also signup to be notified when your state becomes eligible. If your business is not yet online, this is the perfect opportunity to launch it into the 21st century. So get with Google and get your business online now.
