Use Google Sites as Bookmark Manager

Jun 27, 2022

The Internet is an endless source of information. If you’re looking for something in particular, like how to build a bookshelf or the population of Uruguay, the chances are that you’ll find what you’re looking for with just a few searches. But what if you come across a website or blog post that you know you’d want to revisit? In these instances, bookmarking websites comes in handy.

Many web browsers such as Chrome and Brave allow you to bookmark pages and link them to your account. However, what if you have multiple accounts or machines and want to keep your bookmarks somewhere safe? You may find it difficult to locate them when you need them right away.

Google sites can be a great bookmark manager if you want to save websites. You may save a website to your Google site, and all you need to remember is your Google Sites URL; you don't even need to remember the URL, since Google sites are stored in your Google Drive and don't consume any storage space.

Create a blank Google Sites and go to the 'Pages' tab.

Your Google Site is now a photo album and backup location! You no longer have to worry about purchasing additional storage or anything like that.
