The simplified sharing experience in Google Docs has now been extended to Google Sites. As with Google Docs, Google Sites can now be set to various visibility options such as: private, anyone at your domain with the link, anyone at your domain can find and access, anyone with the link (no sign-in required) or public on the web.
The domain administrator can set the level of sharing for the domain, so not all sharing options may be allowed. The new visibility option is always available at the top of each site.
With this update, the new “Anyone with the link” setting makes your site available to anyone that knows the unique URL, but blocks search engines from indexing the site. And for those times that someone sends you a link to a site but you don’t have access, you can now request access to that site from the access denied page.
Standard, Premier, Education, Team, Partner Edition and Google Apps for Government
All languages supported by Google Sites
How to access what's new:
When editing a site, select ‘More actions’ and then ‘Share site’ to see the new interface. You can also bring up the sharing dialog by clicking on the sharing visibility icon at the top of the site.
