If you are a website owner, you should take advantage of all the latest tools and applications available for free on Google Sites. One of the most popular is the PDF viewer that allows you to view your PDF files on your computer, mobile device as a PDF instead of just viewing it as text. This can be very handy in a number of situations. Here are a few examples:

o Using Google Sites to create, host, and maintain an e-commerce website where customers are able to make purchases. Some website builders already include this feature, so you won’t have to install any additional software.

o Embed PDFs directly into your web pages. This is great if you want to provide instant access to a wealth of information to a visitor without having to wait for them to download a traditional site. You could also provide an online printer with printing capabilities for a low monthly charge. However, you would need to have an account with the classic site so that you can publish PDF files. Also, you would have to sign up for an internet service (commonly referred to as a “web host”) to host your PDF files.

Embedding Tool Is The Best Feature Of The Site

o If you want to share your own PDFs with others, you can do so through the service that hosts your PDF files. Many individuals and companies offer free PDF files of all shapes and sizes. This means that you can easily start hosting and publishing your own PDFs on a free service so that others can read and print your PDF documents. The only problem with this scenario is that you will not be considered an expert in the world of pdf files. If you are not knowledgeable about how to open and read PDF files, you may find that the person offering you the service doesn’t know how to read or edit PDF documents either. If you don’t mind having to explain the technical aspects of your business or product to someone who is brand new to the industry, this option may work out well.

o If you want to use Google Sites to share videos, one of the best features of the site is the embedding tool. To use this feature, you will have to find the place on your website where you would like to insert the code. One way to find the code is to look at the footer or the “about” page. Other places you can embed codes include the About Me tab, Your Account tab, Welcome tab or any other page where you want to insert a code. Once you find the code that you want to embed, all you have to do is highlight it and add the corresponding small rectangle, then press “encode”.

Some Facts To Know

o If you’re looking to publish a wealth of multimedia on your new google sites site, you may be happy to know that there is support for many types of media files. This includes both text and audio files. To publish a text file, all you have to do is right-click on the desired file and then choose “asm” as the application from which you wish to publish it. You will then have to click “publish” to start the upload process. You will also find that most gadgets offer a way to publish PDF documents. Simply choose “asm” again and then choose a destination such as “print”, “link” or “save as”.

o If you want to display flash on your new google sites, you will have to look to the flash player plug-in to do so. To open the plug-in, click on “oggle” next to the clock icon. Then you click “flash”. Finally, select the location on your computer where you would like to place the plug-in on your website. Finally, save the embedded YouTube video to your computer’s desktop by clicking the “open” button.

Bottom Line

o If you would rather use the classic Google Sites features and integrate them into your site, you can do so by using the classic embed code feature. All you have to do is copy and paste the code provided in the “using an old browser” section of the Google Sites help page. Just remember to use the version number for the embedding version, so that you get the correct Google gadgets.
