It’s January … what can I say … IT’S COLD! So staying with that theme I wanted to share some cool (ok so it’s a bad pun) things you can do with Google.
Did you know there is a dedicated website hosted by Google that provides free, easy to use tips from the pros? Also a great website with information on how the search algorithm works and how to get the most from the latest Google updates?
I ran across the below while doing some research and thought there were probably quite a few people who didn’t know they existed, so this is my community service deed for the month (:->)
Cool January Tips for Improving Your Search Skills
- Learn about the new Knowledge Graph from Google from Google’s official blog ( a good site to bookmark)
- Find out about the latest updates from Google from their official search site
- Here’s a fun way to spend a little time, learn about “how search works” from the Google team
- Here’s one to definitely read … tips and tricks for improving your search skills (I liked it anyway!)
Lastly, here’s one I didn’t know that’s very useful for smart phones. Open the browser on your smart phone, go to Google and type “weather”. Amazingly, it doesn’t provide links about the word weather … it actually provides real-time updates of the local weather. Pretty cool!
