Get a beta free personal website: Google Page Creator now live

Share

Get a better personal website with Google Page Creator. Google Page Creator allows users to easily run and maintain a website and create web pages using a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) visual editor. I tested the service half an hour ago (screenshots below) and found it very easy to use and customize.

Google Page Creator offers a lot of great-looking templates. To design websites, users merely choose from a wide selection of pre-made templates, similar to what Blogger offers its users.

Users can also choose from a variety of webpage layouts-single column, two columns and three columns.
Yes, Google already owns Blogger but Google Page Creator will be useful to people who want to put up regular personal sites and not blogs. The ease in putting out blogs has made the publishing format almost the default web format for personal sites. With Google Page Creator, users now have the option to put up a “regular” site instead of a blog.

To start creating your own Google Page, you need to have a GMail account. Your GMail username will be used as your Google Page address (username.googlepages.com)
