Sergey Brin, a Russian-born American computer scientist, says” We want Google to be the third half of your brain.” Google search engine has penetrated into the lives of human beings, big time and now it’s difficult to stay away from it. There are a million things that Google does for you. It is highly impossible to understand all that Google has got to offer.
Here are few services from Google that may not have had the limelight that they deserve.
1. Google Offers
Google Offers allows users to find the best deals in their respective areas. All a user has to do is to sign up with Google Offers inorder to get exciting deals in their respective areas. In case you are interested in any of the offers, the service allows you to buy voucher via the Google Checkout. You may print it and use it. However, this offer is available only to the US as of now. As far as UK is concerned there are a ton of other sites like PS Discounts having offers and deals helping to shop online with discounts.
2. Google Insight for Search
The Google Insight is an excellent application that allows you to search for interest volumes and the interest patterns amongst Google users. The search results could be on specific regions, time frame, categories and properties. These search results are based on what people prefer to type in the Google’s search bar and that can be of any interest – sports, movies, products etc. The terms used for searching them are displayed for you in a neat graph showing you the frequently used keywords.
Sometimes this concept feels very funny. Imagine asking Google itself, what people prefer to put on it, what words and in what pattern and the search engine reveals the secret. This is a great tool especially for those who are into the Search Engine Optimization all the time.
3. Google Patent Search
Google Patnet Search allows google users to explore patents on different topics. The service also allows you to download patents from a variety of categories including Science and Technology. The downloaded contents are usually in the PDF format. Google Patent may not be very attractive for a non-technical person but it sure has its own value for people who are in search for it.
PostRank is another excellent google service that has been launched by Google recently. This service accumulates data on social engagements. With a number of widgets and plugins, like its extension for Chrome, this service filters the most favoured posts among the ordinary ones. It goes about the business using social statistics like Tweets, Facebook shares, etc. and intelligently determines the quality of the post.
5. Google Wallet
As the name suggests, this google service allows you to turn your mobile phone device into a wallet. This service can function in smartphones with inbuilt card readers. This card reader pre-scans your credit card details and makes a virtual storage of details in the microchip of the mobile. Hence your future shopping can be done by simply tapping on the screen to make payments.
Well, well, well! You may wonder if there is anything at all in this world that is more powerful than Google. But all that I can say is:
Do not get amazed by what you just knew.
For more Google products are in queue,
What this champion cannot do is few,
The search engine has it all for you.
There are number of other Google products and a number of them being released in future. All of these will make us even more dependent on that tool: GOOGLE. In other words, all these services are well set to make our lives more luxurious.
