How to Create a Google Sites Template Page

Google offers webmasters an easy way to share their contents in  different ways such as through the free blogger platform and the Google plus account. Another way of sharing web pages which is underlooked by many bloggers is by use of Google site.  Google Sites remain one  of the easiest and best way to avail information to people who need quick, up-to-date access to information.

 To create a Google site,  you only need to have an existing gmail account, then go to https://sites.google.com/ and login using the same gmail account.

  • Click on create on the left side bar
  • Select a template/theme
  • Fill in your the site name
  • Site location (is where the webpage will be found)
  • Select a theme
  • Write site description
  • Fill in captcha
  • Click on Create Site found on the top of the page
You now have your Google site which looks like this;
If you want to make changes, click on edit page. A pop up window will appear.  You can insert image, write a free form document, format or change the page layout.

When you are done doing the changes, click on save. Now you can start sharing your site by clicking on share button found on the top far right of the page. You will be taken to a page where you can select the social network that you would like to share your page with such as; Twitter, Facebook, Goolge Plus etc.

One advantage of using the Google site is the ability to be able to control what is found on the page. You can insert videos, docs, spreadsheets, presentations, photo slide shows, and calendars directly onto your Google Sites pages. You are also able to select a theme/template that best suits your needs.
