Although there are numerous available, e.g. Yola, Website, Jimdo just to name a few, I chose Weebly after reading some reviews since I was assured that it was the best option. And still think it is, even I have to admit I haven't been there too much scouting other options.
One thing to say, is that if you want to build a professional web pages for your business, artist pages, for your professional project, you need to invest a little. Although, you can try any of the free options and see how they feel, you will soon get to know that they are missing some key features and that you are lacking control in some important areas. And, it's not expensive. You pay something like 100USD annually, that's what I pay for www.henriyoki.com, and you get all the control you need with easy tools to build it all as fast as you want.
In addition, you don't need to be a IT nerd to get around Weebly back-end interface, the place where you do all the work building and maintaining your pages. To get a glimpse google some "Weebly tutorials", or see their Beginner's Guide to Weebly for a taste how it looks. Super easy.
So, if you list the things you want for your own web pages CMS (Content Management System)
- Easy interface to use
- Cheap maintenance costs
- Doesn't need any nerdy programming skills
- Integration to Google analytics
- Basic stuff: Blogging, image gallery, can embed code (if you want to), SEO, different themes, option to adjust CSS
- Embed video, audio, files
- Booking times, eCommerce (webshop)
- Integrated Google Adsense
I hope this helps you if you are thinking to build a site. I would definitely recommend Weebly! =)
