Google Page Creator was a Web-based tool for creating personal Web pages. It was fairly easy to use, and the users seemed to like it. However, after Google purchased the wiki tool JotSpot, they were faced with two similar applications and a growing need to focus on profitability and Internet security.
JotSpot became the more business-minded Google Sites and was included in Google Apps. That made Google Page Creator the more obvious choice for the axe. Google closed Page Creator for new accounts in August of 2008 and announced their plans to migrate existing accounts to Google Sites.
