Getting Started: A Simple, Single-page Google Site

Get started by building a simple, single-page Google Site.

Google Sites is organic to Google Drive, so you can find and organize your sites there.

Adding Pages and a Menu

Adding pages to a Google Site is quick, but if you plan to build a site with consistent format across pages, considering building template pages, first.

If you have more than one page Google automatically adds and maintains a site menu. You have options as to what and how that menu displays pages and links.

Adding or Embedding Content in your Google Drive

You can add various forms of content housed in your Google Drive to your Google Site, within embed windows. For example, your site visitors can view a Slide deck, or fill out a form.

Creating Buttons

Any image you install in a Google Site can be made a clickable link.  That's handy for adding buttons.  See this tutorial for using Google Drawings to make button images
