"Powerful personal and business platform easy to use to create websites."

What do you like best?

It is very easy to use to manage small business web pages, another advantage is that you can link everything from YouTube, Gmail, Google Docs and everything that is completely free and you do not need to use HTML and CSS, which is ideal for beginners and people without basic knowledge

What do you dislike?

Mainly, when using automatic filling, it tends to put the wrong words. And if you compare it with similar tools, for example, WordPress does not offer five or ten percent of the functions. It has a very small storage space for free accounts and lacks many style and theme options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an excellent platform to make an intranet for your business in a more informal way, it is very easy to use, it has a main disadvantage, as I said before, and it is the lack of personalization that, in your opinion, is the use. You will draw your own conclusions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly, you can solve marketing tracking links and integrations according to each specific need, that way you can also satisfy any business or personal need.

"Website creation platform with integration with other Google applications."

What do you like best?

Google Sites is a platform that Google has been offering for more than a decade, it is divided into Google Classic and Google Sites, which started operating since 2016.

This is a great tool to create wikis and structured web pages. I like Google Sites more as an internal organizer where I can integrate all my google files, since this tool has integration with Google Maps, YouTube, Google Docs, among others. It is a very easy to use platform that is designed to be available to any user. It also offers the drag and drop function that makes work with this tool very simple.

What do you dislike?

I dislike Google Sites which is a platform that really is very limiting in terms of themes to customize the web page that is going to be built on your platform. It offers few themes and designs which really look quite obsolete.

I would like Google Sites to offer more variety in order to make works with a better appearance, that will attract the attention of the users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Sites is a platform that offers great potential to be exploited, it can be a much better tool, however, it is very useful.

It is a free tool where we can host all kinds of files that we want and offer an organized aspect which can work for a better way of working within a group of colleagues. So you just have to try this platform and find out if it can meet the needs of each one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google Sites is a platform that can work in a great way with internal page of the company and employees, where you can reflect all types of files in an organized way, for example using it as a holiday calendar, among other great functions that can be take advantage of this platform, and the best thing is that it is free, which does not generate costs to the company that decides to implement it.

"A simple way to present documents, sheets or other Google content."

What do you like best?

Google Sites is a platform that offers the Google G Suite, it is a tool for website development. Personally I like this tool more as a great organizer for companies to keep important files, holiday schedules and checklists, since it is a more appropriate platform as a cooperative tool, a place to store and organize Google forms, Google documents and Google calendar. However, whoever wishes to use it to develop their website is not any longer since it is a totally free platform that only with entering the Google account we already have access to it.

What do you dislike?

I do not like Google Sites that is extremely simple in terms of the variety of templates, themes and tools they offer to personalize the website or what you want to do in it. It is a tool that I think has enough potential with a clear and easy to use, but it is very poor in terms of designs and options to do a more elaborate job, which takes away points.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this platform as an organizer of files and Google documents, for a more practical and useful way of organizing various activities inside or outside the company. I like it because it is super easy to use and offers good options, although it can be much better if some features are updated. It is a useful tool and without the need to spend money.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Google Sites you can efficiently and easily organize all the ideas or opinions with a team, since it offers the option to drag and drop which is very useful. This platform allows a different form of organization without so many problems and is also free, which is positive and motivates to use it within companies that want something simple without generating higher expenses.

" Google Sites, the best place for your documents, files and more ... "

What do you like best?

Google Sites is one of the best applications in the workplace of an office where text processing is constantly being performed, as a management assistant it has been very useful since it has a great diversity of tools that allow my work to be processed in a faster and more precise way, in addition to this: it has an easy handling of files, it brings added spreadsheets which leads to the work being much faster, it has a customization of the interface of the site. It does not require programming such as HTML or CSS.

What do you dislike?

Google Sites is an excellent application but it has some disadvantages:

Its handling could not be safe if the user does not create a good password and protects it, or if the user makes a mistake trying to share files with his group, and makes them accessible to all public.

It does not have a high enough capacity to support some texts or images.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Google Sites to the maximum since this application allows its users a free development of the work to be done with its multiple tools ... It is an excellent application for anyone who needs to transcribe work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to Google Sites I have been able to solve big business problems since this application has excellent technical support that allows a better functioning when transcribing or processing some kind of work, with my clients I have obtained excellent benefits since my presentations are very clear and precise at the moment of expressing what I want .. It has tools that really are very helpful for my work team, strengthening more and more my work environment.

"User friendly and visually stunning"

What do you like best?

Google Sites is great for the novice. Layouts and functionality similar to all other Google products make this one of the easiest and cleanest site builders out there. Customizable on a basic level, with new features and functions being added regularly. Easy to keep pages consistent with canned themes. Integrates with Drive beautifully. Much more modern than the older version of Google Sites.

What do you dislike?

Lack of customization on the detail level. You can make a great, consistent website but within pretty strong limits. If you're looking for very detailed, unique, and customized way to build your website, this might not be the choice. Though, this has been improving over the years, however still pretty stiff.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for introduction to website construction. Might frustrate those who are advanced. Amazing free resource, great for learning the basics of website design and structure.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's a great, quick way to communicate events or show off accomplishments. We use our Google Site as a main means of delivering important information.

"Asistente de Paginas Webs"

What do you like best?

Google Site es una herramienta sencilla pero poderosa para la creacion de paginas webs sin ningun tipo de esfuerzo, gracias a la gran cantidad de plantillas generalizadas que trae.

Los sitios tienen un gran aspecto en todas las pantallas, ya sea que se trate de una computadora de escritorio o un smartphone. Además, no es necesario que tenga conocimientos de diseño o programación. Sites simplifica la exhibición del trabajo de su equipo con acceso fácil a todo su contenido de G Suite, ya sea que se trate de una carpeta de Drive, un Documento o incluso un Calendario compartido.

Esta utilidad es sumamente increíble y sencilla. La creación y la edición del contenido son sumamente fáciles: solo tiene que hacer clic, arrastrar o soltar. Luego, el diseño se reorganiza automáticamente con un formato de cuadrícula. Todo encaja en el lugar correcto y es sencillo mover los elementos, cambiarles el tamaño o reorganizarlos.

What do you dislike?

Parece algo irónico pero por ser sencilla también tiene funciones muy sencillas. Aunque actualmente tiene una nueva versión y ha incorporado nuevos estilos, diseños y funcionen; no tiene capacidades que brinda un Hosting completo.

Ademas para realizar la indexion de la pagina creada a los sitios buscadores de Google es muy complicado el proceso. Microsoft podría permitir la capacidad de incluirla con solo un botón.

Pero para paginas sencillas y rápidas, realmente es muy buena y util.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Puede causar problemas si la organización no cuenta con los recursos suficientes para invertir en ella. Muchas veces nos esforzamos más en lograr una comunicación externa favorable a la reputación de nuestra empresa y olvidamos la comunicación con los empleados y entre los empleados.

La manera de solventar esta falta de inversión económica y temporal puede pasar por la creación de una Intranet a través de la aplicación Google Sites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Desde que estudio en la secundario he utilizado esta función para crear proyectos personales y educativos.

En la secundaria expuse la pagina para la escuela a la que asistía y les encantó a todos.

Después de este primer proyecto; me expandí hacia nuevas creaciones e incluir nuevos aspectos y mostrárselos a otras personas que también están muy contentas con el trabajo realizado.

He aprendido sobre los diseños web sin necesidad de programar. Esta pagina es muy buena para el aprendizaje y para que novatos como nosotros nos convirtamos en expertos creadores web.

"Show the world your ideas and projects in the best way "

What do you like best?

Currently most people seek to publicize their projects, regardless of the type of project, food, fashion, writing, farandula, etc, and what better way to do that than creating your own website, and no doubt Google Sites is your best option, an easy to use platform, various templates designs to create your own website, upload images, videos, links, and best of all is that it is FREE, you only need an account on Google.In particular I have managed to experiment with all the tools that this platform offers me, my work is based on researching, shaping and providing information and there is no better way to do it than through your own website.

What do you dislike?

Actually not much bad that can be said about this platform, it complies with what it promises and it is easy to use and access, it would only add the fact that sometimes it can be a bit basic, since it does not allow you to create advanced designs and another thing that brought me one or another problem is that it restricts you a lot in the weight of the files that you upload, according to the format of them, leaving that aside Google Sites is the best option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend google sites to all people, who like me, need a platform to share their work or hobbies, whether for personal or work use, in my case, a bit of both. It is the best option from many points of view, since it is free and offers you the best tools, very easy to use and access and is very attractive visually, you just need a little time and creativity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to this platform I have been able to create my own website, where I can upload my articles or relevant information that are of my authorship, I can express myself in a freer way and with a personal touch, as a journalist I had done something complicated due to the fact that not all the time we get information out, and with this platform I no longer have that problem.

"Let your company know without any payment"

What do you like best?

Before starting any project in the first thing you should think about is how to publicize what you do and what you offer, for that you must search for the relevant means, Google Sites gives you the ability to have your own website at no cost, that is a gigantic profit, is quite easy to use and provides a good amount of possibilities when making a free website.

What do you dislike?

In particular, more positive than negative contributions, I would like to have a couple of extra editing tools. I'm not complaining about it, it's excellent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely Google Sites should be your first choice when creating your work or personal website, it is easy to use and free, what else can you ask for!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Advertising problems for domain payments are over, each partner can create their own website to publicize their work progresses and work schedules, reduced the cost of maintenance of web pages.

"A great way for a newbie to get into website design"

What do you like best?

This is a very simple platform to be able to develop a website. I like how easy the tools are to use and how easy it is to be creative. I also like how easy it is to find approved content from google and incorporate it into the website.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see some more freedom to create more sub-pages to the site. It is a little restrictive on how you can map out your pages. Sometimes it is also hard to adjust or edit the pictures or content

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would work with it for a while to make sure you are exploring the options on the site. Keep working to make it as cool as possible instead of just settling with what you can put together so quickly. Also, take some time to find out how to edit or change pictures to customize them to your preferences.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to use the google sites to make a web site to make communication easier for my co-workers and my students. Also, it has been great for my student's families because it make the class information readily available to the parents.

"Suitable for intranet sites"

What do you like best?

Google sites from my opinion is great for internal intranet sites, it is has a great compatibility with Google Docs and Sheets, as I can embed any Google documents or sheets I have access on to the site directly.

The most helpful in Google sites that it almost requires NO programming experience to build a full site, it has a great drag and drop functionality, and you can easily organize your drops into the site's page.

Embed HTML is very helpful feature and you should know how to write HTML correctly, but there are easy sites convert what you need to HTML scripts.

What do you dislike?

There is no easy way to set passwords for site users, and there is no professional way to assign authorization access level to specific pages or content.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommended for intranet sites

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is almost used as an internal intranet site to share all company's key objectives and KPIs results, also to share the company;s departments staff and their roles and responsibilities.

"Easiest Website Builder Out There"

What do you like best?

This is the easiest website builder out there. You seriously just click and type. Adding photos and videos is also a breeze with google sites. There are many different included themes so the websites are very open to customization.

What do you dislike?

I cant think of a single thing that I dislike. I do wish there were better local weather plug ins for google sites, but that really is the only gripe I have, and that is a tiny one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go for it. I promise this will be the easiest website builder you will ever use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A few years ago our school system went from a windows based Office 365 software suite to google suite. This included completely changing our website as before our website was hosted through taskstream. I was nervous. I had no clue as to what I was doing as I had never built a website nor had any experience at all. Google sites made it as easy as typing and clicking. Within a few hours I had a fresh, new, easy to navigate school website up complete with videos and pictures. Updating the website is super easy as well. Its as easy as clicking on the text box and typing what you want it to say. Its seriously that easy.. This is such a time saver and also helps us, as a public school, comply with federal guidelines by allowing public access to the school safety plan, the school improvement plan and other things. Our lunch menu is always up to date and easy to find. I could go on and on. Google sites is amazing.

"Easy access"

What do you like best?

It is thanks to this software that we can easily demonstrate the work of our team, having access to all of our documents. Easy to use all working tools. The site is also great for personal use, especially if you want to publish an electronic resume or portfolio. The advantage of using the site in quality and ease of maintenance.

What do you dislike?

Sites are not extensive, and it's very difficult to create a professional looking site, it still looks like a site that was created not by a professional. The disadvantage, I would call the setting, which is slightly limited. For example, when you use a template for your portfolio, and make some changes, you can not completely get rid of the entire template.

Recommendations to others considering the product

 You have a great opportunity to work in real time for collaborative editing. Also, you will have powerful access controls. For me there is another advantage that everything we work on, we can see and change in real time. Therefore, teamwork will be more convenient and productive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a critical situation with the site, but thanks to this software we were able to create a new site in one day. This saved our work.

"Quickly but very simply"

What do you like best?

If you need to create a website, Google Sites is a reliable and easy-to-use service. You can create more than one page, or several, which allows you to make the site more professional. Google Sites are suitable for those who want to make a quick and easy website without unnecessary problems. When working with the site I like that it is updated quickly, and several employees can work on it.

What do you dislike?

The program is not suitable for those who make websites professionally. You will not have much choice of fonts, images, and themes. But for the internal work of the company, it will suit you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Sites is suitable for those who want to make website quick and easy, without unnecessary functions. Also, you can easily place your site on the Google platform, this will be useful for you.

"Google Sites Review"

What do you like best?

I can access any sites created and shared with me through my cell phone easily with no problems related to authentication, it just requires me to login to my email! easy to access, easy to navigate, easy to link Google Docs and G. Sheets to your site, easy to share, compatible with all types of browsers, it never required programming knowledge to create a usable site except if you need to embed HTML, in this case you should know HTML, even this can be managed through some sites convert what you need to HTML code, the most thing is it is "easy" to create useful web sites.

What do you dislike?

The embedded links for Sheets or Docs for example if you don't have an access to see them, the site's content will appear very poor, so I recommend to share all sites' content to the people I shared the site with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sure recommended

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helps to create the company,s intranet, helps to create websites prototypes to our customers before starting the actual work, helps to share the created sites very easily without the headache of security administrations

"Create a Website Quick with Google Sites"

What do you like best?

Google Sites is a great platform to use when you want to create a website quickly.

Corporate users will benefit from it because it’s a great resource for creating internal websites and for developing prototypes of a website. The sharing tools make it is to secure the privacy of the site. For example, Google Sites makes it easier to share the site or certain webpages with a few people people for review before distributing it to a whole group or staff within a department. In addition, it offers ample opportunities for people to provide comments. This comes in handy when you are seeking feedback about the content within the webpage or the whole web page itself.

The site is also great for personal use, especially when you want to post an electronic resume or a portfolio. The advantage of using the site as a portfolio of your work is its easy maintenance.

The site is fairly intuitive, but may leave some people scratching their heads from time to time as they figure out how place objects. I would say it’s a bit simpler when compared to using SharePoint; and, since I have used SharePoint which is more complex, I found Google site is easier to manage.

Google sites is mainly used in classroom settings. Teachers often use it to display lesson plans, and they encourage students to use it for certain educational projects.

A Google Sites perk is that you are able to track some activity on the site like the number of visitors by using Google Analytics, and that too is fairly simple to set up.

What do you dislike?

The downside I would say is that while it offers opportunities for customization. The customization is a bit limited. For instance, I used a template for my portfolio and made some changes. However, I wasn’t able to get rid of everything from the template, I still have part of the multicolored background visible when you scroll toward the bottom of the page and it contrast with the sleek look I was attempting. One important thing to know is that the space is limited to 100 MB. I am not sure if you can buy more, but since its associated with other Google products like Google Drive all you have to do is publish your Google Doc or Google Slides and share. This doesn’t work so much with PDFs, and PDFs have a tendency to take up space.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You’re not limited to creating one site. So you can create a website for your book club, tv show fan club, or a blog site. Also, if you are just starting out with your business, this is a great place to develop your website and expand upon it later. I wished I knew about Google Sites earlier because I would have been able to save a lot of money by creating my business site here first and then once the traffic grew I could link it to a third

I would encourage people to try it, especially when you want to put together website fast.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used the platform to create a portfolio of work samples. This took about a few days to put together since I had to dig to find the information, but once I found some work samples I was comfortable with posting, it was easy to display. I think that’s one of the advantages, it’s a great place to privately store examples of your work since you can restrict the access.

"User friendly but very limited."

What do you like best?

My company uses Google Sites to create an internal intranet where we upload and share files and other information. We have created a very complicated hierarchy of sites within it, and we can manage viewing and editing permissions across all of our users. It's a great way to share sensitive information over the web and save and share files. It's also very easy to integrate Google Sheets and Google Drive, etc.

What do you dislike?

Google Sites are pretty basic. They're functional, but a bit ugly. Not super sleek, but gets the job done. I dislike the fact that we sometimes have trouble with our user permissions working correctly. Hard to use/format tables within it, but I guess that's what Google Sheets is for...

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't expect rich editing/formatting/layout options. Google Sites is very basic and works best as an information sharing platform, not a snazzy website creator.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

File organization and sharing is great in Google Sites. It allows remote access to users in our company. It is easy to share permissions and fairly intuitive to learn. Lots of easy options to create ready-to-go pages of various purposes.

"The Most Effective Free Option"

What do you like best?

While there are many significantly better paid options available online for web development (such as Squarespace) no one beats google when it comes to simple and free. I've been able to build many simple test sites using Google Sites and others for our clients, using the tools that they provide.

What do you dislike?

The cheapest isn't always the best, and that is very apparent when you try to go deeper on google sites. There are not a lot of expandability options when it comes to building out your site. And besides some basic deep linking options, there isn't a terrific amount of customization available either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As long as all you want is a free and basic solution, it's the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Google Sites primarily for building simple test sites and portals that are needed for specific projects. This makes it much better than other paid options for a quick projects.

What do you like best?

Google Sites is easy to use. It increases productivity. I'm able to create presentations very quickly compared to PowerPoint and other presentation tools.

What do you dislike?

Given what Google Sites claim to be, I have no dislikes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Google Sites is a wonderful tool. Productivity is increased 100%. I once had a meeting that required me to be ready in 20 minutes. The Google Sites was amazing. My mind was able to quickly get a presentation completed in minutes. The flow really helps you get your thoughts out fast.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problem I solve is setting up Intranets quickly. The benefits are enormous. One main benefit is not having to wait on technology gurus to get business done.

"Great new design"

What do you like best?

I love the new design of google sites - it is very clean, the templates that are built in are nice, and it's incredibly easy to create the design of your choice if you don't want a template. The sites also look great on mobile devices, and don't distort your information at all.

What do you dislike?

I wish edits were auto updated rather than having to re-publish each time, it is challenging.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Doesn't require any learning, you can play around with it for a few minutes and go live immediately!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used google sites to share interactive maps that I have created through google maps. They are easily accessible and make sharing with specific parties very easy.

"Create a site in minutes!"

What do you like best?

I'm a programmer and I knew well how much efforts required to create a very simple website, but with Google Sites I can now create a full website in minutes, using the already existing templates and drag & drop feature to drag anything to the website, also I can add any Google sheets or documents.

I can rearrange everything very easily with no even one programming code, I can share it to all my colleagues or my friends to take their comments for better user interface or better contents.

What do you dislike?

I badly need a flip image control but unfortunately it is not supported

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Create internal sites to share ideas and events, all KPI results published in a Google site and shared to all of us, so we can easily access our department's KPIs and suggested improvement action plans.

"#1 Industry Leading Company and Here's Why"

What do you like best?

Google Sites are the most intuitive sites around. They are the leader in web development and technology and each site showcases that by it's functionality and content purpose. I will continue to use google for the ease of use and direct linked access to online information with results you can count on.

What do you dislike?

The only issue with google sites sometimes can be the advertisements. There is such a big market for ads now that sometimes when you search for a site, you are redirected to similar ones with ads at the top middle bottom and sides of the screen. If a company doesn't have a completely unique name, it's hard to decipher and uncode which site to choose. This doesn't deter me from using the sites, just creates some extra searching and drilling to land on what I'm looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Continue to improve search results and ad placement. We understand advertisements is a big part of revenue but functionality is also very important. Web development can be tricky sometimes but Google streamlines the process and makes it easy for anyone to catch on. I love their service and a business will see results immediately if the tools available are used correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Google sites is great for personal customer interaction. We love using the sites for allowing our users to have the ability to respond to our products and new services we offer. Online presence is becoming such a large part of almost any business so monitoring the results is a tool to increase and drive sales from other sources. This also cuts down on marketing expenses.

"Basic tool for website newcomer"

What do you like best?

Quick and fast website building and also hosting. That is the main advantage of this tool. It works in the way it should work. No crashes or other bugs that i could find and even for newcomers an easy way to build a homepage.

What do you dislike?

You are simply limited with this tool. The low number of templates and designs is very negative. I think they released a new version of the builder but i havent tried it out yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I can really not recommend it for anyone who has serious ambitions to build a professional website. But for people who just want a quick build webpage it is the right tool, also its free so you cant lose anything except your time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We tried the website builder for small business information pages for potential customers. But in the end we decided to use our standard CMS system for such things. Now we manage our company football team with it and are giving out internal company news.

The biggest thing what really helps it is to create themes and do it so carefully. So after that clear work, my content always looks perfect.Even with others devices will be some good.
