  • Hi,

    My SharePoint Sites Web Part is used for displaying documents authored by you where you’re a member and sites of your choice. Note that this web part is only available on My Site.

    Site Aggregator Web Part, however, can be used to display sites (specific page in a site) based on our choice. For SharePoint sites, it shows your documents on the site and gives you a link which is what My SharePoint Sites Web Part presents. For non-SharePoint sites, it displays the site itself.

    Generally, both web parts work almost the same except that Site Aggregator Web Part does not display the list of tasks.

    For more about My SharePoint Sites Web Part, please refer to:
