Page URLs

Your page has two separate attributes -- the page URL and the page title, also referred to as the page name. These are both different from and independent of your site URL and site name, which are linked to each other.

When you create a page, you will be prompted to give your page a name, and that name will be used to automatically create the page URL. However, you can change your page name or change your page URL independent of each other at any time.

Changing a page's URL

To change the URL of a site's landing page, you must first choose another page as a landing page under the "General" menu that can be found by clicking More and then Manage site in the right corner of the page. You can then use the following steps to change the page's URL.

  1. Navigate to the page whose URL you want to change.
  2. From the More drop-down menu, select Page settings.
  3. In the box below Page URL, type in what you want the last part of the page's URL to be. (Note, the beginning part of the URL is dictated by the structure of your website. For example, if you want to add a page URL of "cousins" to your site, which you called "familyblog," the page's full URL would be //sites.google.com/site/familyblog/cousins.).
  4. Click Save.
Note: You will only be able to use alphanumeric characters and dashes in your page URL.
