Google Page Creator sample

Take a look at what I have done by using Google Page Creator in just a few minutes.

Google Page Creator does not support JavaScript?

I tried to insert Google Adsense code (JavaScript) by using the Google Page Creator HTML editor but Google Pages did not display Adsense ads, the code is missing in the page source code as well.

Seems like Google Pages automatically removes all JavaScript code. Oh, that’s bad.

My two cents

People like to compare Google Page Creator with Yahoo! Geocities. Geocities has page builder too, but only offers 15MB storage space and it’s supported by ads.

Personally, I would prefer to use Google Page Creator. It offers large storage space, easy to use page creator, annd ads free (currently). Plus, you get a sub-domain name at GooglePages.com (YourName.googlepages.com).

The bad side is that it does not support JavaScript, which means you cannot add your own fancy effects or functions to your pages.

Google Page Creator is currently closed for new accounts. I think it helps to stop the spam creators but it is a bad news for webmaster wannabes.

Well, another reason to have a Gmail account? :)

    Like a lot of free web hosting and design services, there will be limitations. But it looks like Google is trying a bit of everything… web-based word processing, spreadsheets etc.
