Page templates can be great ways to make webpages in your site consistent.  You can create your own (learn more) or use the built in Google Sites page types.  For example, you can create a blog-like page using the announcements style, a page that lists files and/or website links using file cabinet style, or a customizable list using list style.  Learn more on ways you can use these types of page templates.
