Just to avoid misunderstandings: I don't think google favors  
gogglepages.com over other sites, including .mac... To get found by  
google, the choice of your provider in this case probably makes  
little difference.

Regarding .Mac, I have never used it, just know that for simple web  
pages the iWeb route is about the same difficulty level than Google  
browser-based route. By the way, I'd recommend using Firefox for  
Google's applications.
