A few months ago we launched Google Sites exclusively as part of Google Apps for companies and organizations that wanted to use the service on their own domains. Now we've made it easy for anyone to set up a website to share all types of information -- team projects, company intranets, community groups, classrooms, clubs, family updates, you name it -- in one place, for a few people, a group or the world. You can securely host your own website at [sites.google.com...] and add as many pages as you like for free.

Whoops you beat me to it!

Just to add some of my users are saying you have to be logged in to google to actually see the pages?

Anyone else got this? I logged out and could still see my pages.

I think you need to have the "Home" part added:

Whoops - I just tried to register a site using
[sites.google.com...]

...it was already taken - and mywebsitename is a very original name i.e. - not a common search term.

Obviously none of the already taken 'good' names is going to be a "team web site", what do they plan to do with it? The url is ugly and unmemorable, there is no link value, advertising is not allowed..

Always worth it. If the page does well in the serps then some clever links to other sites could work well.

When visiting a page you are not allowed, you get this message on the screen

"Sorry, myemailaddress@gmail.com does not have permission to view this page."

I am just wondering if the owner of the site can also view my email address in his log file or history file ?

*********************
It's just crazy... Most good names are gone...

I am just having fun looking at brand name such as sony, toshiba, etc. And just noticed that only the term "google" has been locked. Otherwise, there are no restrictions and even big name like fifa or yahoo are gone.

Anyway, URLs are ugly and it is total nonsense to me.
