Short Links for UM Google Sites

Posted on: November 1st, 2012 by

Sites are Google’s cloud solution for web site development. Provided as a part of Google Apps for Education at the University of Mississippi (UM), faculty, staff and students are beginning to use Sites for course collaboration sites and organization web pages.

One reported downside has been the length of the Sites links. I have good news. You can promote a shorter link for all your Sites hosted under the UM Google domain.  When you are ready to publicize your site, use the link where google_site_name is the name you chose when creating a Google Site under your UM Gmail account.

Your Google Sites

We want to know what you are doing with Google Sites to share with your colleagues in a future TechNews article.   Send me an email so we can share your creativity!
