Google has launched a new service that allows account holders to create their own home pages with the Google Page Creator website editor. However, when I tried to give it the "once over", the service had exceeded demand and is now (as I write) temporarily unavailable.
The editing tool has a ‘what you see is what you get’ interface, and requires no HTML skills. It’s still quite basic, offering only the ability to create a page, rather than a full site whilst still in beta testing mode. A site building tool will follow, with a space limit of 100MB. Each completed page is also added to Google’s search engine by default.
Google Page Creator is available to view in both IE and Firefox, but you’ll need a Gmail account to use it. It should be back up when Google add extra capacity, so bookmark this link to claim yours.
