Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
You can find anything on Google -- even, potentially, a living. Brad Hill’s Google Search and Rescue for Dummies unearths all that power and puts it where it belongs: in your hands.

Of course, you’ll learn how to perform better, faster searches. But you’ll also learn how to use Froogle and Google Catalogs for comparison shopping and get actual, real news through Google News. You’ll discover how to make the most of Google Local’s immense local databases; find maps to anywhere; and check out Google Earth’s amazing satellite imagery. You’ll master Google’s latest email and desktop search tools -- even add search to your own site.

Speaking of your site, Hill shows how to “monetize” it with AdSense. And speaking of money, he even de-complicates the bewildering Google AdWords program. Not bad for a book this concise and readable. Bill Camarda, from the October 2005 Read Only
