Week 5 – Journal 1 Google Site

26 Sep

Google site can be used to support many activities including private notes, keeping track of children’s assignment, collaboration and sharing pictures with family and friends.  While google site can be used for private purposes it has a big potential in business.  Document sharing is the core feature in google site.  It is a vehicle for communication for most businesses.  They can have different sites to cater for different business units for example Training, Sales, Human Resource and Project Management.  The “current announcements” feature enables each member see important announcement in real time if they are subscribed to those pages. 

While working on my google site this week I stumbled upon a very interesting opportunity under the “monetize” feature.  When you think you have interesting material on your google site, you have the option to enroll in AdSense (Google’s advertising program).  Adsense gives an earning opportunity to the website owners by allowing Google to post advertisements on their websites. These advertisements are either text advertisements or image based advertisements. Here’s more information about Adsense http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXXJYuPQyCw
