Google Pages

QTSaver Daily Search results for Google Pages

Another demonstration of the power of this micro content search engine to grab relevant info from multiple sources and present it on one page

1. http://pages. google. com/-/about. html About Google Page Creator

o We're testing a new product that makes creating your own web pages as easy as creating a document in a word processor. Google Page Creator is a free tool that lets you create web pages right in your browser and publish them to the web with one click. There's no software to download and no web designer to hire. The pages you create are hosted on Google servers and are available at http://yoursitename. googlepages. com for the world to see.

o Will Google give preferential treatment to web pages created with Google Page Creator in Google search results?

o If you're interested in testing out the product, please visit http://pages. google. com and sign in using your Gmail account to begin making pages.

o preferential treatment of any kind in Google search results.

o Definition: Google Page Creator is a Google Labs project to generate and host simple HTML web pages with images.

3. http://en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Google_Page_Creator Google Page Creator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

o Google launched a product called Google Sites in February 2008. It is unclear whether these two products lines will each remain, or whether Google Pages will get phased out.

4. http://www. techcrunch. com/2006/02/22/google-pages-released Google Pages Released

o Although there has been no official announcement yet Google have released the long awaited and long-rumored Google Pages (which has nothing to do with cloning Larry Page). Pages allows users to create a web page using an AJAX interface that removes a lot of the ‘pain’ associated with creating pages with HTML and other desktop design applications.

o Once you are in the application you are presented with a WYSIWYG interface displaying your page and some editing controls. The interface in terms of what they have done with client-side Javascript is impressive, and what Google has done in terms of putting up simple pages is cool but overall it is an underwhelming gimmick that may have some potential if they focus. Google Pages allows you to upload files, create many pages that you can link up, and select from a smorgasbord of templates. The website which you can then push out to publish can then be found at username. googlepages. com.

o The way it usually works with real website design is that the design wraps the content creator up completely simply so they don’t mess things up – only because we aren’t all creative types. Google Pages does let you upload any file though, and gives you 100MB of space, which some may find more useful for sharing files or distributing SNL video’s.

o For instance, this is not going to be a threat to the younger crowd who are all creating pages on MySpace, nor to the audience of millions of bloggers who already have their online presence, nor to the players in the CMS space who offer a whole lot more in functionality and power. I am not sure who this is targeted at as the small business owners and non technical folk sure aren’t looking at Google for a website solution and considering there is no domain mapping at the moment being a business and handing out a domain is just, well, embarrassing.

o Google released the first public beta of its Google Pages service Wednesday, allowing users who signed up for the service in January and February to begin creating personal websites using an easy-to-use, browser-based tool. The service gives each user 100 MB of free storage space on Google's servers.

o To use the Google "Page Creator" tool, users must have an existing Google account. However, only those who signed up early (in January and February) to use Google Pages have access to the current beta. No new signups are being accepted at this time, Google said. The company is expected to open Page Creator to more widespread use over the next few weeks.
