Publisher Comments:

Google.com is one of the most popular sites on the Internet and is used around the world by millions of people every day. Sure, you know how to "Google it" when you're searching for something--anything!--on the Web. It's plenty fast and easy to use. But did you know how much more you could achieve with the world's best search engine by clicking beyond the "Google Search" button?

While you can interface with Google in 97 languages and glean results in 35, you can't find any kind of instruction manual from Google. Lucky for you, our fully updated and greatly expanded second edition to the bestselling Google: The Missing Manual covers everything you could possibly want to know about Google, including the newest and coolest--and often most underused (what is Froogle, anyway?)--features. There's even a full chapter devoted to Gmail, Google's free email service that includes a whopping 2.5 GB of space).

This wise and witty guide delivers the complete scoop on Google, from how it works to how you can search far more effectively and efficiently (no more scrolling through 168 pages of seemingly irrelevant results); take best advantage of Google's lesser-known features, such as Google Print, Google Desktop, and Google Suggest; get your website listed on Google; track your visitors with Google Analytics; make money with AdWords and AdSense; and much more.

Whether you're new to Google or already a many-times-a-day user, you're sure to find tutorials, tips, tricks, and tools that take you well beyond simple search to Google gurudom.

Book News Annotation:

Although the popular and pervasive internet search engine Google doesn't require packaging, this book is part of the publisher's "missing manual" series, which supplies the books that "should have been in the box." In this second edition (the first was published in 2004), writers Milstein and Dornfest are joined by a third, Matthew Macdonald, and coverage includes Gmail, AdWords, and Google Analytics, among other updates. In their introduction the editors cry "uncle" with regard to keeping the book up to date with Google's rapid changes, so a new edition is undoubtedly already in the works. The book is friendly toward beginners, starting with the basics and progressing in sophistication. Tips and notes are highlighted throughout, so those who don't want to read closely can skim and find new things to try. The appendix lists sites pertaining to Google for those who want more, more, more.

An excellent guide to Google. Think you know all there is to know about using this popular search engine? So did I, but I've lost track of the number of times I've said "I didn't know THAT!" while reading this book. Highly recommended for beginners and experienced searchers!
