"Create your own web pages, quickly and easily."With this tagline, Google adds merchandise to its multitude of services. Google Page Creator is a Google Labs project, and is still in an early testing phase. It is a free online tool that makes it easy for anyone to create and publish useful, attractive web pages in just minutes.
It comes with a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor which allows you to make your webpage without having any prior knowledge of HTML. That means, you can make a professional looking webpage in just few minutes without having to learn HTML or use complex software.
The service offers a host of templates to choose for your webpage. You can also choose various page layouts for your page. Currently, the WYSIWYG editor just have very basic formatting functions like text styles, alignment, hyperlink, image etc. You are also allowed to edit HTML code of page sections, though you cannot change the page layout code for now.
You would need a Gmail account to make your website. Google hosts all pages created using this for free. You are given a subdomain URL: http://yourgmailusername.googlepages.com
Trying my first hands on this service, I also created a personal page with Google Page Creator. You can view my page at: http://gsmodi.googlepages.com.
