How to View The Business Website on Google

Many people are wondering why their Google business website can’t be found anymore. Usually you would be able to access the site by clicking on the standard website field and it would show an additonal option to “manage” the Google Business Site. 

However, users started to report that this option was gone and removed from their profile. See screenshot below. 

I’ve found a way to activate the site and get it back to your profile. It’s a little technical but I’m going to guide you through the process without you needing to contact a developer.

Access Google Business Website - Step By Step

I’m going to use the Chrome browser on Desktop. If you’re using a different browser, please switch to Chrome for this little hack.

Step 1 - Log in to your Google Profile

Go to your Google Business Profile. You can search for “my business” on Google’s search or go to

Step 3 - Check Frame Source Code

Right click with your mouse and select “view frame source”. Don’t confuse this with “page source”. We precisely want to see the frame source code of this pop up window.

Step 4 - Find your Google Business Site ID

The Google Business Site ID is not visible anywhere else, so you need to find it in the source code of this pop up window. 

  • In this source code tab, press CTRL+F on a windows PC or command+F on a Mac to open the search bar.
  • Now type in “data:” (without the “”)
  • If you’re on the correct page, the search bar will show you 8 search results. We’re going to need the last one that looks like on the following screenshot:
  • Now you’ve found your Google Business Site ID.
  • Copy the ID and paste it to the following URL:

  • Hit enter and marvel at your Google Business Site. The “manage” button that had been removed is back again, too.

Thanks a lot for the great tips. I’ve been looking for this since I’m helping my fellow SME in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The Google Business Site is a great help for us. But I don’t know whether Google will continue this services in the future.
