so I was wondering what would be the best site for easy to read, easily understandable, free guitar lessons.

Well, I've been teaching myself for 3 years now. After you get the basics down you don't really need a teacher. You can get some TABS at this website. There really is no need for a teacher and online music is hard to find. Not much to it.
Personally, I prefer having a teacher break things down for me, and at the same time encourage me to figure it out myself, but I started on tabs.

I've been playing for nearly 2 years and I suggest using tabs with a program called guitar pro. It's really useful.
Guitar Pro also costs $60. For a program with some similar functions and also a high number of existing tabs I suggest Power Tab, which is free. It's not the same caliber of product, but at least it's legal (I'm assuming everyone pirates Guitar Pro).
That being said, an actual guitar teacher is always preferable, assuming you're actually dedicated to becoming an accomplished guitarist. You can teach yourself a lot, but having someone hold you accountable for improving as well as being able to show you specific techniques will help a lot. For individual song tutorials though, I usually just search on Youtube until I find someone that actually knows how to play the song and has a decent tutorial.
An aside: marshmallows dipped in Nutella are amazing. Do it now.

All they do is make it impossible to get music lessons of any kind and piss off real Italians.
At least, that's how it was when I tried to get bass lessons.

Reading sheet music straight to guitar is hard because there's about a billion ways to play any given note on various strings, or using harmonics, or whatever you feel like. It would be a valuable skill, if only because you'd be able to look at a fretboard and know what note on each fret for each string is, which would be beneficial for improv especially. Reading music for guitar is not a very emphasized skill, and I sure can't do it with any reasonable speed, but I have been reading music itself since first grade due to learning the piano, and that background has been useful.
