Google Page Creator

February 23, 2006

We’d like to share with you news about a new product that we’ve introduced today on Google Labs and also explain the limited availability. The new product is Google Page Creator, a free, easy, browser-based tool for creating attractive web pages.

Web publishing can be complicated, expensive, and unsatisfying. Google Page Creator has been designed with ease of use in mind. Its unique interface enables users to edit and create pages just as they appear online, without knowledge of HTML or other computer programming languages. Combined with a simple one-step publishing process, users can create attractive, functional web pages in minutes – hosted by Google for free.

Google Page Creator is a web-based tool, meaning no download is necessary. Users need only visit and sign in using their Gmail account to begin creating and publishing their own web pages.

Google Page Creator will be available on Google Labs, an area of our site devoted to our favorite ideas that aren’t quite ready for prime time. We look forward to hearing from our users on how Google Page Creator can be updated and improved to better serve our users’ web publishing needs.

We decided in advance to limit the number of page sign-ups in order to provide users with an optimal publishing experience. Due to extraordinary demand, we recently reached that limit so we have temporarily paused additional sign-ups. We expect to offer sign-ups again very soon. Users may check the Google Page Creator website regularly for updates or submit their email address to a wait list and we will contact them when we have the capacity to support additional users.
