What does Google Sites do well? Google Sites allows us to create simple websites in a very easy way, it is an ideal service for beginners, so I use it to teach programming students. It offers you multiple templates that you can select according to your needs and allows you to upload some content such as images and links to other websites. In my company it is used to make specific events websites, which do not require much information and can take customers to our home page.
What does Google Sites not do well? The problem with Google Sites is that the designs of its web pages are very simplistic and flat, and you cannot enter audio files, slide shows, visit counters or any other kind of plugin. This is why we only use it to make simple websites.
What do you wish you had known about Google Sites before using? I would have liked to know that this is a service for beginners and the creation of simple websites, so it would have saved me a good amount of time trying to make the sites made here look like professionals.
Have you used a competitor to Google Sites? If so, how does it compare? That's right, WordPress, which we use to make more complex websites, leaving simple websites to google sites.
