Google Shortcuts: Find What You Want (More) Quickly

Google is so easy to use, why attend this presentation? If you’re like many people, you use only a small number of Google’s services and features. Learn how to go beyond Google’s deceptively plain interface and take advantage of many shortcuts and underutilized capabilities. For example, get driving directions by entering a US street address into Google’s search box. Need a US Phone number or address? Just enter a company or person’s name and a city, state, or zip code in the standard web search box. Enter a query even if Google’s home page isn’t in your browser from Google’s Toolbar. Personalize your Google home page with weather forecasts, news headlines, traffic reports or other helpful information. If you aren’t sure whether a word is hyphenated, search for it with a hyphen, e.g., [ long-term ]; you’ll get more results. Find synonyms by preceding the term with a ~, which is known as the tilde or synonym operator, e.g., [ google ~guide ] finds guides, tip, help, and tutorials on using Google. Search by example with Google Sets. For a quick summary of some of Google’s features, visit the Google Guide cheat sheet. The more you know about how Google works and its capabilities, the better it can serve your needs.

What Google Can Do For Your Website

How can you get more visitors to your website? Learn how from Nancy Blachman, author and developer of Google Guide, an online tutorial and reference, which over half of its visitors find directly from Google searches.

Nancy Blachman will share her experiences in designing, developing, and promoting Google Guide, www.googleguide.com, which is now the top result for queries including [ Google tutorial ], [ Google guide ], [ using Google ], [ Google stock symbol ], and [ Google favorite features ]. In this presentation, Nancy will cover creating content for your website, linking to search results, getting your site listed in Google, improving your site’s page rank, publicizing and advertising your website and generating revenue from AdSense.
