Google Pages

I just tried out Google Pages and thought the service was pretty cool. I designed a page in about a minute with nothing to download. And while the product is still pretty basic it allows anyone to rapidly set up a web page. Sure there are other sites that do this but Google is so well known that they will likely spawn a new generation of web page designers. Anyway, take a look at my Google Page and tell me what you think. After all, it was only a few minutes of work to create this. An opposing viewpoint on Google Pages is provided by the Mashable blog.

    This is yet another example of the infamous 20% rule at Google.
    Nothing wrong with giving your creative guys freedom to innovate, but the latest Google ideas seem to be only 20% baked and have 0% management oversight or strategic value. Time to grow up!

    I would like to see Google Pages improved but for now it is a start and a placeholder for the future. If I ran Google I would do exactly the same thing. I would get as many products out there as possible and improve them over time. Google has a land grab mentality and when you compete with multibillion dollar giants, why leave any stone unturned. The goal is to get their first.
    I am sure this service will get better and better over time.

    In the future, the following query in Google might return quite a few pages:
    site:pagetastic.com | site:googlepages.com
    It returns all indexed pages created with the new Google Page Creator tool. The thing is, your sub-domain – e.g. john.doe.googlepages.com – will always be your Gmail address. And spammers, as we know, like nothing better than to get a lot of email addresses to send their spam too. Soon, they’ll have another way to harvest those addresses.
