Link to sections of pages on Google Sites

The current version of Google Sites has come a long way in the last year. It now includes almost all the features that the old version of Google Sites offered (well, because the old version is scheduled to be phased out soon). One of these features is the ability to link to a specific section with a page on your site.

To link to a section on a page on your Google site, you must include section headings. It’s easy to do. To include a section heading, simply insert one of the layout options listed in the right-hand menu of the Google Sites Editor. Then just write a title for your section. When you then publish your site, you will see a link appear when you hover the mouse pointer over that section title.

Applications for education

As I mentioned in the video, linking to a section on a page in Google Sites can be helpful for your students as you try to point them to a specific resource within a long list of resources on a Google Sites page. You can send the link to the section in Google Classroom or any other teaching system to direct students to a specific resource or section of a resource list.
