The Complete Google GuideBook

Get Started with Google • There are many reasons (all of which are covered in this publication) to delve into the Google app suite. Yet before you start to explore these amazing tools and discover just how much you can do with them, you need to get to grips with the basics. What follows details how to set up your all-important Google account and also teaches you some important safety tips to ensure all of your online Google adventures are secure ones.

Google Account Set Up • In the past, using several different Google apps would have meant having several different usernames and passwords. Thankfully, Google took steps to merge all of these different accounts into one main Google account. This means that you only have to remember one username and password to access almost any Google product, plus it is much easier to share information, images and other data between your devices.

Improving Your Google Security • Keeping yourself and your family safe whilst using your Google apps is just as important as it is when you are sharing your details and your files online. That said it doesn’t need to be difficult. While using the Internet and social networks can have its problems, you can reduce them to a minimal level by following a few simple pieces of advice.

Protecting Your Privacy on Google • Online privacy is an extremely important issue when it comes to using your Google apps. Google has included a comprehensive privacy tool to help you take control of, and monitor, how the company uses your information. This guide will reinforce your privacy rules when using Google.

Improving Your Google Searches • Google has the ability to search through billions of pages to supply you with the most relevant results for any search you desire. Google has different versions for different countries and, while they all work in basically the same way, by using the version for your home country you can be sure of both local and international results.

Using Specialised Google Search • There are several specialised search tools, letting you cut through all the unwanted information and just see results from, for example, blogs, shopping sites or scholarly papers. You can access these search pages at any time from the Chrome browser or Google Home page.

How to Create Google Alerts • You can use Google Alerts to monitor anything on the web and then have links to any matching content sent directly to your email address each day, or when new content is available.

How to Personalise Google Trends • The Google Trends app brings you the world’s most popular search terms or topics. Breaking down the results by country and region, while also offering insights and keeping you updated to the latest trends. Users can also browse history data giving you a clearer view of the world’s online habits.

Getting Started with Chrome • Google Chrome is much more than an alternative web browser. If you are looking to use the Google app suite to any degree we strongly advise you to download Chrome now!

Customising the Chrome Browser • There are many different ways you can customise your Chrome experience, from adding extensions to setting the default home page. If you really want to make Chrome personal to you, there is no better way than adding a theme.
