Google Sites News - Share Settings

Google Sites, and really Google Apps, has been improved in terms of making it easier to share your website.  The share settings used to be part of the Manage Site contents, but now it has been moved to the More Options drop down menu next to Create and Edit Page.

Sharing has never been something I've used very much.  I always make my sites public and I limit collaborator privileges (call me a control freak).  Nevertheless, it is always great to be able to do something more easily.  Google Sites sharing is now similar to that in other Google Apps like Google Docs.

Remember your options:
  • Anyone can see your site (public) *will be indexed eventually and then not very well
  • Only those with a link can see your site (semi-private) *will not be indexed
  • Only those given permission can see your site (mostly-private) *will not be indexed
