"Google: The "Big Daddy' of the Blogging World"

By Merle http://MCPromotions.com

It seems like every time you turn your head these days you hear something about Google. Definitely a force to be reckoned with, Google is king online. Although they're known mostly as a search engine, they provide many other helpful services to today's website owner.

Their non-search services include Blogger, Google Adsense,Adwords, Google Desktop, and more. If you use one or more of these services, Google probably publishes a helpful blog to go with it.

Let's examine a few:

1) Google Adsense: http://adsense.blogspot.com

Many website owners use Google's Adsense to display ads on their websites and generate a monthly income in exchange for their efforts. This blog is a "look inside Google Adsense." Who better to learn the ins and outs of Adsense from than from Google's employees themselves?

You'll pick up plenty of tips to help improve your click thrus and learn about many Adsense features you may not fully understand. If you're an Adsense user, you need to subscribe to this page.

2) Google SiteMaps: http://sitemaps.blogspot.com

Google created "Sitemaps" for website owners to supply information about their sites so that Google can easily crawl through and index their pages. A sitemap gives Google more complete information about your website that they may miss when doing a regular index visit.

This blog covers the "nitty gritty" of sitemaps, how they work and things you'll need to pay attention to when creating your files. If you want to fully understand the program and how to use it to your best advantage, stop on over.

3) Google Adwords: http://adwords.blogspot.com

Adwords is Google's pay per click ad program. Your text ads are displayed both on search engine results pages and other websites when someone searches for the keywords/phrases that you have placed bids on.

If you use Adwords, you can really learn a lot about how to improve your conversions and get more for your dollars here.

4) Google Reader: http://googlereader.blogspot.com

Google Reader was designed to make it easier to keep up with all of the information you like to read online. Using it can help you get all of the latest updates for your favorite websites.

This blog will keep you posted on the latest reader updates, any known bug problems and tips for getting more out of Reader.

5) Blogger http://buzz.blogger.com

I love Blogger. It's the fastest, easiest way to start your own blog at no charge -- and it's owned by Google, who publish their own blog to help you get the most out of blogging at Blogger. Read it for fun stories and news of the latest add ons and enhancements from Google's Blogger team.

6) Google Video: http://googlevideo.blogspot.com

Google Video allows anyone to upload videos to their servers and others can go and watch them. This blog showcases some of those videos and upcoming special event videos.

7) Google's Blog: http://googleblog.blogspot.com

Google is like a small country and this blog will give you a glimpse into their culture. Posts are done by various employees in various departments. You'll learn a lot about Google's products and other technology news. If you're obsessed with Google, this one should be on your "must see" list.

8) Adwords API Blog: http://adwordsapi.blogspot.com

This free Google service allows developers to engineer computer programs that interact directly with the Adwords server. You might say it's for "tech heads." If you're a "geek" you'll want to hang your hat here.

9)Google Desktop: http://googledesktop.blogspot.com

Google Desktop is downloadable software you can use to quickly find files and other information on your computer. This blog will tell you about updates, available plug-ins and more.

10) Google Base: http://googlebase.blogspot.com/

Google Base is a place where you can post all types of content and have it show up on Google. This Blog will enlighten you on how best to use it, and even showcases others having success with Google's latest service.

It can be a full time job just trying to keep up with them all the delightful services Google provides. By bookmarking their blogs, and/or subscribing to their feeds, you too can become an "expert" on all things Google.
