Google Sites is a hosted service.  It's free but there is no way easy way to move your site to an alternate ISP. For page statistics, you can always use Google Analytics.  It is integrated into Sites and can be configured in very little time.  See Steegle's article below.

There are fantastic tutorials on Youtube to help you going. Several time I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how to implement particular feature using a Google web editor and was unable to find any documentation . Google tutorial has answered many of my questions and I very much appreciate it.

Google Sites Video Tutorial » Thoughts from a tech specialist…

There are many teachers at my school using Google Sites to create their class pages. I decided to put together this video tutorial to help them get started. If you are outside of our domain, you will need to substitute your own information…

UPDATE: I’ve created an online course for Google Sites using Moodle. You can take the course by going here.

The Google Sites blog is moving

Starting today, the Google Sites team will be posting our updates on the Google Apps Blog, at http://googleapps.blogspot.com, so please check this new location for news about Google Sites. You can also get content from the Google Apps Blog as email updates or subscribe to the RSS feed.

As we strive to create easier and more integrated experiences for our users to move between different Google applications, we think that in addition to providing application-specific updates, it is also important to communicate the bigger picture of how we are making applications work better together. Google Sites already has features built in from other Google applications, like when you insert Picasa web albums, YouTube videos, gadgets, and Google Docs into web pages, and we believe that improvements in these related services will be useful to Google Sites users. Through the Google Apps blog, we can give you all the news we normally would about Google Sites as well as related tips and updates from other Google applications that would also be helpful to you.

This will be our last post on this blog, but we have plenty of cool things in store for Google Sites, so be sure to get the latest news at the Google Apps blog.

Doing more with gadgets

Friday, March 20, 2009

Labels:

Gadgets allow you to easily add dynamic content to your Google Sites web pages, and are available from the “Insert” menu when you are editing a page. Some of the more basic gadgets, like the “Recent posts” or “Recent files” gadgets give you a quick view from a central location of content being updated on other pages. Gadgets can be tools like a clock or to-do list, informative like recent news headlines or stock quotes, or even fun games or a virtual aquarium. Clicking on the “More…” option in the “Insert” menu brings up a directory of gadgets that you can check out and try on your pages. If you want to get started building your own gadgets, check out the Gadget Developers Guide.

We have also made some improvements to the way gadgets work for users of the Premier Edition of Google Apps:
  Please check out our post on the Google Enterprise blog for more information on these updates.

Google Sites

  • Upload files and attachments Use the file cabinet to upload files up to 10MB in size. Each Google Apps account receives at least 10GB of storage in Google Sites. Google Apps Premier and Education editions get an additional 500MB for each user account.
  • Embed rich content Google Sites is integrated with other Google products, so you can insert videos, docs, spreadsheets, presentations, photo slide shows, and calendars directly onto your Google Sites pages.
