Are Google Sites searchable?

Yes, Google Sites are searchable by default. When you create a website on Google Sites, it is indexed by Google and can be found in relevant search results when people search for terms related to the content on your site. This makes it easier for people to find your site when they are searching for information related to the topics you cover. It's important to note that the visibility of your site in search results will depend on various factors, such as the relevance of the content on your site to the search terms being used, the quality of the content, and the number of other sites that are competing for the same search terms. However, as long as your site is live and publicly accessible, it should be searchable on Google.
