Welcome to our collection of the best Google Site examples that prove you can create a decent website fast!
While Google Sites is a free service to create an online presence for yourself or your business, it’s a very basic one.
Even though we have some awesome examples, they all still look very similar. (But you need to check Joshua Pomeroy’s page because it’s proof that you can do great things even with a free website builder.)
But for something quick and essential, Google Sites can do the trick.
Best Google Site Examples For Your Inspiration
1. Filip Rzepka
Filip Rzepka’s page is one of the best we could come across when curating this collection. What we particularly like is the animated full-screen background above the fold.
Moreover, the page also has a sticky top bar and header and a simple footer with social media icons.
Note: Use a top bar if you want more eyeballs on a special notification.
Jae Hoon Choi’s Google Site is minimalist, with a clean header and footer that are separated from the base with a line (keeping the background color intact).
The header includes menu links and a search bar, while the footer contains additional business and contact information.
Note: You can always aim for a minimalist website design if you’re unsure about your page’s look.
Avox Architects welcomes all its visitors with a full-screen image slider with a parallax effect. They keep it clean and distraction-free (without text and call-to-action (CTA) buttons) to enjoy each slide more.
Moreover, the floating header ensures the navigation and search bar are always available, so you don’t have to scroll all the way back to the top.
Note: Use a full-screen slideshow to capture your visitors’ attention right off the bat.
But feel free to go one step further and examine some more architecture website design.
Xu Chus’s Group has a full-screen hero image with a transparent header that solidifies and sticks to the top of the screen once you scroll.
The image also has the parallax effect to make the user experience more engaging. But overall, the home page is very basic and short, so you can scroll through it instantly (or press the scroll down button).
Note: Spice things up with the parallax effect.
E-Gaming Experts is a Google Site with a basic home page featuring a floating navigation bar, a banner with a title and text and additional business, service and contact information.

The footer doesn’t have a traditional design but just a company message. Moreover, the search icon opens a search bar that overlays the entire header area for easier typing.
Note: Use your footer section to share a quote or a bold company message.
Preesh’s home page is just a full-screen image background with a parallax effect, title and text.
Below the fold are only various icons for social media and other platforms on a contrasting background to stand out more. But it’s the floating header that guides you to other internal pages to find more information.
Note: Use contrasting colors to make your website more dynamic.
Google Drawings has a full-screen responsive web design with full-width image sections displaying artwork.
The hero image has a parallax effect with a text overlay that gives you quick info about the artist. Moreover, the header is a classic sticky Google Site header with menu links and social media icons.

While you can pretty quickly guess it’s a Google Site, Joshua Pomeroy took things to the next level, thanks to his great skills.
The home page works as a portfolio, but you can also check art and design pages for more project examples.
The header and footer both have menu links to quickly get you to the desired page. Moreover, Joshua made a transparent header for a cleaner look, but it turns solid and sticks to the top of the screen once you scroll.
Note: Turn your home page into an online portfolio, so everyone can get familiar with your work without searching for it.
