An official website of the State of Georgia.
How you know
Local, state, and federal government websites often end in .gov. State of Georgia government websites and email systems use “georgia.gov” or “ga.gov” at the end of the address. Before sharing sensitive or personal information, make sure you’re on an official state website.

As we turn 10 this year, we’ll keep educating, gathering, analyzing, improving, and reporting alongside our agency partners. We know there will be more challenges and opportunities long before our next milestone; we look forward to solving them together in all the years to come!
We’ve just added a layer of protection from outages called a Web Application Firewall (WAF). It’s an additional set of tools that our engineering team uses to monitor and block unwanted traffic.
Read about DSGa's first-ever virtual GOVTalks conference, sponsored by our web analytics partner, Siteimprove.
In his keynote for GOVTalks Spring 2020, Chief Digital Officer Nikhil Deshpande gave attendees a detailed look at digital metrics strategies and the critical role they play in helping agencies measure, analyze, and report on the effectiveness of their digital properties. He also discussed the ways that GovHub, the state’s official digital publishing system, and its performance measurement tool, Siteimprove, give agencies everything they need to monitor, evaluate, and improve their website’s performance.
At GOVTalks Spring 2020, DSGa’s Amanda de Zayas, Content Strategist, and Ericca Farrington, Outreach Coordinator, teamed up to talk about Search Engine Optimization (SEO). We learned what SEO is, how search engines work, and what makes up a search ranking. They also explained how agencies can use Siteimprove’s SEO tools to help constituents find their websites quickly and easily via search engines, like Google, Yahoo! and Bing.
The DSGa team just finished migrating 80+ websites to GovHub, Georgia’s official digital publishing system powered by Drupal 8. While this may seem like the end of a long trip, the real journey is just about to begin!
Digital Services Georgia is introducing federated authentication for all websites migrating to Drupal 8; providing content management access to multiple sites on GovHub through a single set of login credentials.
The Digital Services Georgia (DSGa) team is excited to launch pilot.georgia.gov. This pilot site is more than a facelift to the existing Georgia.gov website; it’s a modern way of managing content and interactions.
DSGa's new digital publishing system was built to ensure our agencies have everything necessary for their users — the citizens of Georgia. Citizens won’t lose access to your site with the migration to Drupal 8, but they will notice the changes when you migrate your agency’s website to GovHub.
Digital Services Georgia (DSGa) is building a new digital system for the people and with the people, working with the agencies we work with to assist the Georgians who will be interacting with this system.
