Tips for Regularly Backing Up Your Google Sites

March 31st, 2023
March 31st is the World Backup Day

In celebration of World Backup Day on March 31st, I'd like to share some information on how you can regularly back up your Google Sites.

Google Sites has no storage limit

Unlike other files, such as Google Docs, Google Sheets, and non-Google files like Word documents, PDFs, and photo images, Google Sites itself does not take up any space in your Google Drive. In other words, it doesn't consume any of your Google Drive storage at all!

If you're interested in learning more about this, I have a separate article on the topic posted here.

So, why do you need to back up your Google Sites?

Just because Google Sites doesn't consume storage doesn't mean that your site's files are not important. Your website is the face of your business and brand, and it should be treated as an important asset.
