the Fundoo View – Google Guide

The website under today’s perspective scanner is Google Guide. The name is pretty self explanatory and you may think, “well why do I need this?”. I assure you, you will be pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information this site has to offer. Its like a Blue Book, a guide on how to use Google to accomplish your tasks online. I know, I know, and I felt the same way … “what is there to know about how to use a search engine?”. As I mentioned, I was surprised to learn certain things that I had not imagined or never thought of using Google for. Of course there are other search engines such as Bing, Yahoo and a new comer Wolfram Alpha. However, today Google is synonymous to search and in fact is used by many as a verb … “Let’s Google and find out”, “I’ll Google the company for details”, “Go Google”, “Don’t forget to Google it”, … Similarly the first thought when someone mentions Google is “search” although Google has some real cool products in its kitty now.

So, why are we here? ‘coz today’s website attempts to help you get the best out of Google with a series of tutorials and simple tricks and tips. Here’s what the author has to say, “Google Guide is an online interactive tutorial and reference for experienced users, novices, and everyone in between. I developed Google Guide because I wanted more information about Google's capabilities, features, and services than I found on Google's website.

The site is organized in a simple way so you can access the tutorials and tips and tricks in one of 2 ways. First you can trend per your comfort/expertise level - novice, expert or teen. Yeah! I know, teen! Its funny, try it. The alternate way to navigate the information would be to jump to a section (eg: Overview, Query Input, Developing a website, Cheat Sheet etc). The Cheat Sheets are a good source for quick reference.

What are you waiting for? Go head to Google Guide and hopefully there’s something new for you to learn.

Have Fun!
