The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

Want To Know More About Google Search?

Getting information and details about Google processes has always seemed like a mystery. Top Secret. Getting answers in the past was more than just challenging, it seemed impossible. We would search the Internet to find answers to questions about SEO, indexing, serps, robots, and algorithm's, etc. only to discover deep-linked dead-ends and inaccurate information.

So where does one go to find information about the secrets, developments, new products, launches, changes, and get the accurate inside scoop about Google?  At Google of course.  Let me assist you with this quest.  It's taken many of us months, even years to find and discover some of these Google sites and very informative people.

The Google Mystery Tour!

There are some great resources available out there now, some better than others, but for those of you just wanting some simple answers to some of those difficult questions like, "How is Google making improvements to its search algorithm?"  I found a few sites and folks inside and around the Googleplex that don't mind sharing.

Learn about the Evolution of "Google Search" - Inside Google, you'll love it!

Some sites I suggest to keep up-to-date with Google's World & Playground

Hopefully some of these channels, sites, and people can help you find answers to some of your other questions.  You can always ask me and others around the AR network or out on the web too. Sometimes sharing your information and knowledge with others helps shorten their learning curve, and helps better their online efforts and experiences.  Always Pay It Forward, it will come back to you 10 fold~

I still can't believe there's a "Church of Google" I'm sure that one will get some attention...  :-O

Paula - thanks and you're welcome.  This summer flew by, but from what I remember... it was good!

I've said it before and I will say it again, Google will one day rule the world,,,,from a cell phone.

When do we have time to keep up with all this and to still do real estate stuff?

I'm still working on finding time to smell the roses . . .

Posted by Thomas McCombs (Century 21 HomeStar) almost 8 years ago

Thomas - that's why you have friends like me around... so we can find all this stuff and then share it with you so you CAN go out and smell the roses. 

I know what you mean though, sometimes it feels like this:

This is a rose from our garden... take time to be grateful (smell the roses) for every blessing no matter how small.  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 8 years ago

Brad - thanks for the links and information. I can't seem to stay ahead of Google.

Yikes. Over 500 changes to an algorythym a year makes it pretty tough to do seo for bots. I finally built my site for the end users and it has worked better.

Posted by Randy Ostrander, Real Estate Broker, Serving Big Rapids and West Central MI (Lake and Lodge Realty LLC ) almost 8 years ago

Brad, thanks so much!  I've been having a time trying to install analytics on one of my sites.... hopefully this will help... but then again, I'm blonde, you know!  :-)

Hi Brad--Thanks for the great links. Sometimes there is so much to learn it is downright overwhelming. I know that when I have a few extra minutes to go to your blog and I am sure to lean something new! Linda Esposito, HouseSetters Home Staging

Holy Moley I'm all google-eyed just looking at this list.  It's awesome that GOOGLE gives us all the tools we would ever need, and instructions on how to use them.  Where would be without google and with out you?  Probably still in a DOS system.

Hey Susan - DOS?  what's that? lol~

THIS JUST IN:

To be completely transparent and maybe even create a little contraversy, here's an email comment I just received from someone over on Chris Brogan's blog post about "Google owning you" and it really did make me think for a minute...

I think I feel a blog post coming on...

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) almost 8 years ago

I misspell things all the time so its nice that the search makes that correction.

Posted by John Cannata, Texas Home Mortgage - Purchase or Refinance (214-728-0449 http://TexasLoanGuy.com) almost 8 years ago

Brad - once again a great list of resources ..... google does own the web as far as search engines goes but I have never been one to put all my eggs in one basket as the person in your last comment did

Hi Marcia - glad you enjoyed this and thank you. I just watched it again myself and was reminded of the Google complexity and how much goes into the "search" :-)

Brad, thanks so much for sharing!  I've saved this post for future reference.  Trying to stay on page 1 of Google is an ongoing effort and anything we could do to stay ahead of the curve helps.  This is why I Love AR!

Posted by Matt Kombrink, Your #1 Source For Real Estate (RE/MAX All Pro) almost 6 years ago

Matt - glad you enjoyed this post, thanks for commenting. Google is a great way to get you exposure to those in the "search" world, and a tough one to stay on top with so always use great content as your tool to stay on top! :)
