What Google Says:
“Shared workspaces for your team.
Easy to build.
Build project sites without writing a single line of code. It’s as easy as writing a document. And, to save even more time, you can choose from hundreds of pre-built templates.”
Why You Should Use It:
Google Sites is fast, easy to learn and simple to set up. You can edit your site easily online and it works with a WYSIWIG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. However the design templates are limited and the bandwidth is restricted. It’s best suited for the following types of sites:
- Company Intranets and Private Client Extranets (It’s awesome for this!)
- Small Businesses
- Landing Pages, Squeeze Pages and Microsites
- Personal Sites
- Small Web Design Companies
Is it free? No, not usually. It’s part of Google Apps for Business, which is a paid service. BUT, there’s a way around it for now for a single user account.
