Creating a Free Google Site can be a time consuming task for many novices and small businesses. In this tutorial I will show you step by step how to create a Free Google Site.
Step 1: Sign into Google Sites or create an account
- Go to http://sites.google.com/
- Sign in or create a Free Google account
Step 2: Create the Google Site
Click the Create button
Step 3: Select a free Template
All of Google’s site templates are free. You do not have to pay for a Google Site. Select a template or browse the gallery. I suggest browsing the Google Sites gallery and searching for a website that best suits your needs.

- To add a page click on the Plus Icon
Entering the WYSIWYG editor will allow you to make changes to this page including the ability to add gadgets like photo galleries, Google Checkout, YouTube Video and countless other gadgets that can extend the functionality of your website. You can also add columns and change the page layout using the WYSIWYG editor.
Make changes to the site’s settings by clicking the MORE dropdown menu
Clicking on the MORE button will give you many choices. These choices include page settings (where you will enter the page description for SEO purposes), save the page as a template (useful in creating e-commerce stores), or changing the site’s colors and design features.
