How to Create a Free Website with Google Step by Step

In this article I will teach you how to create a free web page with Google.

I have received many questions if there was any way to make a website totally free. And the answer is yes.

You already know that you can ask me any questions in the comments section that I will be happy to help you. Let us begin!

Free Start

 

✍ How to Create a Free Website with Google Step by Step

Google has a web building tool that not everyone knows about. It’s no secret…

Its name Google Sites and you can create your website for free in a matter of minutes.

Types of Pages you can make…

  • Simple pages without much pretense.
  • Pages to be used with Google Adwords (advertising campaigns).
  • Author’s autobiographical pages as a presentation
  • Resume Pages.
  • Collaborative websites for associations, institutions, universities…

In my opinion, Google Sites is used to design a web page for free without too many pretensions. If you want to create something more elaborate there are other alternatives.

However, I am going to teach you how to create your website with Google Site in 3 easy steps.

☝ Step 1 – Create a Google account

The first requirement is to have a Google account, you can create your account from here.

If you have a Gmail email account then you already have an account with Google.

The process is quite simple, enter all your data correctly and log in.

✌️ Step 2 – Enter Google Site

Free Start

 

Enter Google Sites from here and you will arrive at the screen you see below. Here you can create a blank site or use a template (easier to design):

Currently you can choose between 9 templates or design themes. There is little variety but they may be enough. Don’t forget it’s free.

Once the new site is selected you will arrive at the editor.

The Google Sites editor is one of the simplest I’ve seen. Over time the tool has been updated and new options have been added. Now everything works through blocks to make editing easier.

As you can see, the control panel is on the right so you can easily drag items. For example:

  • Text boxes and code insertion.
  • Add images (carousels) and videos from Youtube.
  • Buttons.
  • Presentations, Documents, Spreadsheets, Forms, Graphs, Maps…

This process is very creative and you will have to invest a little time to create the content of your website.

👌 Step 3 – Publish the Web

Once you click on the publish button, the site will be open to the entire public on the Internet. The web address will be under the free domain of Google Site (for example “www.sites.google.com/testwebsite2”). This address is not very professional.

If you want to have a professional domain you can buy it at Google Domains. Later you would have to integrate your domain with Google Site (something easy).

As simple as that. As you can see, you would already have a website created with Google in a matter of minutes.


Now we are going to see other alternatives, do you think?

🔥 Alternatives to Google Sites

In my opinion, there are other alternatives to Google Sites that may be more interesting for developing a free website. Everything will depend on the type of page you need to make to use one or the other. Let us begin…

1. Webnode

www.webnode.com

Types of Pages you can make…

  • Simple pages with quite professional look.
  • Online Store to Sell Products.
  • You can incorporate Blog option.
  • Website in time record.

Webnode is indicated for people who do not have much knowledge or much time to learn. It is simple, direct, easy to use and most importantly free.

Webnode está indicada para personas que no tienen ni muchos conocimientos ni mucho tiempo en aprender. Es Sencilla, directa, fácil de utilizar y lo más importante gratis.

You can create a website in different languages and you can use it in all countries.

2. Wix

www.wix.com

Types of Pages you can make…

  • Pages with high visual impact.
  • Pages especially for creatives and photographers.
  • You can incorporate blog, shop and booking pages thanks to the plugins you can add.

I see it as ideal for creatives and designers since they have many templates with high image quality. In this tutorial I show you how you can create a wix website.

You should not forget that the more visual load a web page has, the slower it can be. Web loading speed is an important factor for Google.

3. WordPress

Types of Pages you can make…

  • Professional pages scalable over time (WordPress.org version).
  • Pages with dynamic content.
  • Highly recommended as a Blogging tool (to create blogs).

I am passionate about WordPress and siemprendes.com is created with this system. However, I understand that not everyone has a lot of time to learn. WordPress takes time even though many people say otherwise. I have been learning for 10 years and every day I discover something new.

⚡ Frequent Questions

In this section I am going to publish the most typical questions that I usually receive.

Free forever?

The free versions are forever and do not expire. As long as you don’t exceed the limits.

Online store on Google Sites?

Google sites does not have a payment processor as such and you would have to use an external one (for example Gumroad) . Another simple option would be to use the paypal buttons and integrate them into the google sites website. Although if the size of the store is large it would be quite laborious.

I think that if you are going to create an online store there are better options than google sites.

Can I have a Own Domain?

The only way to have a professional own domain with Google is to buy it (yourname.com). If you want it free, it would be type “sites.google.com/elnombredetuweb”.

How to appear on Google?

Newly created pages take a while to be indexed by google. It will also depend on the words you use to search for your page. It is not the same to search for “tutiendadezapatillas.com” than for “sneakers” as there are millions of competitors fighting to be the first.

I advise you to make good content and post it on social media to start with.

As you have seen, you can create your free website with Google and other tools, but remember that it will depend a lot on you to use one or the other. Any questions write me in the comments and I will be happy to help you.
