Google Sites is Google’s free website builder software that it offers as part of the G Suite of Drive, Email, Hangouts, etc.
Sites has never been highly publicized like its other products. I’ve always thought of Sites as part of the bucket of products like Drawing, Blogger, and Correlate that sort of come as part of other, well-known product lines but are otherwise forgotten about…yet still awesome in their own way.

My experience with Google Sites began back when I first started my web design business years and years ago. I never used Google Sites for my projects until I came across it when a client of mine was using it and needed a few tasks done.
But since then, better competition has popped up from Wix, Squarespace, Weebly, WordPress.com and other website builders. And Google has upgraded the product I originally used. They’ve streamlined it to make it supposedly the “effortless way to create beautiful sites.”
So for a personal project of mine, I decided to try it out again and see who the product would really be a good fit for – and not just compared to other hosted website builders.
