Hi,

 

My simple question is that, what if I use Google Site in an Adwords account. Will Google allow to write display url as sites.google.com?

 

Thanks in advance.

I tested it in the past,  in an experiment. It worked.  You'll have to use  he full destination URL is in the format : sites.google.com/mysite

I've used it to and had clients use it too. However, it's a LOT less hassle to purchase your own domain name. You're paying your hard earned money to send traffic to your site and your brand. I feel that it's better to build your brand on your own domain from day one.

There's also the fact that some visitors may perceive your site as less authoritative if hosted on a free host. YourBrand.com is a lot more powerful than you think.

I agree with Dave, these days buying a domain is a matter of minutes. When  I tested it, it was to promote an informative page. The domain did not matter much, and during  those days - if I recall-  there was an issue with using a "top level domain" other than. com
