How To Use Html In Google Sites

Google Sites is a powerful website builder that allows you to create custom websites with ease. One of the key features of Google Sites is the ability to use HTML, which provides you with more control and flexibility over your website’s design and functionality. In this blog post, we will guide you on how to use HTML in Google Sites effectively.

Step 1: Access the HTML Editor

To start using HTML in Google Sites, you need to access the HTML editor. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Login to your Google Sites account or create a new one if you haven’t already.
  2. Open the website you want to edit or create a new site by clicking on the “Create” button.
  3. After you are on the website editor, click on the “Embed” option found in the Insert panel on the right side of the screen.
  4. A small window will appear with two tabs: “Embed URL” and “Embed Code”. Click on the “Embed Code” tab to access the HTML editor.

Step 2: Add your HTML Code

Now that you have accessed the HTML editor, you can start adding your HTML code. It’s important to note that Google Sites does not support all HTML tags, and certain features may not work as expected. However, most basic HTML tags will work just fine.

For example, if you want to add a simple paragraph to your site, you can use the following HTML code:

<p>This is a simple paragraph using HTML.</p>

Copy and paste your HTML code into the “Embed Code” text box, and click the “Next” button. You will see a preview of your HTML content, and if everything looks good, click the “Insert” button to add it to your website.

Step 3: Adjust the HTML Element’s Position and Size

After inserting your HTML code, you can adjust the position and size of the HTML element on your website. Click on the embedded HTML element, and you will see options to resize and reposition it. You can also use the “Properties” tab in the right-hand panel to further customize the appearance of your HTML element.

Step 4: Save and Publish Your Changes

Once you have added and adjusted your HTML elements, make sure to save your changes by clicking on the “Save” button in the top right corner of the screen. After saving, you can publish your website by clicking on the “Publish” button.


Using HTML in Google Sites allows you to have more control over your website’s design and functionality. By following the steps above, you can effectively incorporate HTML elements into your Google Site and create a more customized online presence.
