Beginner's guide to creating a site

Create a site

Once you've signed in to your Google Account, you can start making your Google site. Here's how:

  1. Click the Create button.
  2. Choose one of the displayed site templates, use the default blank template, or click Browse gallery for more to review more template choices
  3. Enter your site name and the URL where it will be located (for example, sites.google.com/site/yoursite). The name and URL you choose can't be changed after you create your site, or used again if the site is deleted.
  4. Click "More options" and select the appropriate checkbox if your site contains mature material. You can also add an optional site description in this section.
  5. If you wish, click "Select a theme" to pick a theme for your site.
  6. Enter the wavy characters in the word verification section, and click the Create button at the top of the page.

Now that you've created your site, you can create a new page by clicking the New page button in the top right corner of your window.

Then, name the new page and select the type of page you want: webpage, announcement, file cabinet, or list. After you've selected where you want to locate the page, click the Create button at the top of the page.
