When we launched Google Sites last February, we wanted to offer an easy but rich way to create web sites. And we've been really excited about the progress to date. More than 4 million sites have been created for everything from intranets, project sites, and wikis to wedding sites, family sites, and club sites.
In August 2008 we stopped accepting new sign-ups for Page Creator to shift our development focus to Sites, which offers many of the capabilities of Page Creator, along with additional features such as site-level navigation, site-level headers, advanced sharing options, and rich embeddings such as calendars, videos, and Google docs. In addition, Google Sites will be adding support for AdSense, Google Maps embeddings, as well as additional theme and layout capabilities in upcoming releases. We will begin the transition and subsequent shut down of Page Creator on June 1st.
Please see our FAQs for more details. Thank you for your patience as we complete this transition. We're looking forward to making Sites even more useful to you in the coming months!
