If you don’t consider yourself to be a “Power Googler”, have no fear, the company has opened up registration for a program that it called “Advanced Power Searching.” It sounds pretty fancy, but all it is, is a series of online courses to help you get the most out of Google and its most important service, search.
Collectively, we probably barely use half of the power that Google Search has locked inside of its walls.
Here’s what Dan Russell, Über Tech Lead for Search Quality and User Happiness (awesome title), had to say about it today:
Advanced Power Searching with Google helps you gain a deeper understanding of how to become a better researcher. You will solve complex search challenges similar to those I posed in my blog, or a Google a Day, and explore Google’s advanced search tools not covered in the first class.
Oftentimes the most intriguing questions invite you to explore beyond the initial answer, and there’s no single correct path to get there. When looking for questions that can’t be solved with a single query, “search” can quickly turn into “research.” Google Search offers a palette of tools to help you dive deeper into the web of knowledge.
If you use Google, then you know that you can get more out of it when you change the way that you pose questions in the search box. By rephrasing things, you find yourself getting better, and more relevant, results. It’s actually a skill, if you will. This program comes after its first run, Power Searching with Google. Will there be super advanced, next? We will see.
The program, which is free, starts on January 23rd and runs until February 8th, and if you take all of the classes and follow the search tips, you’ll probably be able to track the history of your Aunt Tilly in no time at all.
