This post looks at 7 Must Have Google Apps
In case you weren’t aware of it, Google
Is much more than just a search engine
True it started its life that way, in much the same way that the
Wealthy Affiliate Platform started life
However,over the years it has grown into much more of a technology platform
Search is still part of it, but as you will discover in this post,
There is way more to Google than that
So, let’s look at
7 Must Have Google Apps
Now these are not in any particular order and if you are a Google User, then you may well have your own favourites
Apologies also for teaching you to Suck Eggs!
1. Search Bar
Everything in Googles life starts with a search phrase or Term.
Without it, neither Google, nor you as a Blogger can exist
The search bar, like all the Apps mentioned below, can be found in two places
The first one is on the home page, which you will be familiar with below
The second place, is inside your Gmail Inbox.
It can be found, when you click on the 9 little black dots
These are found at the top right of the screen.
Related to the search bar in its own and unique way.
YouTube, which Google brought in 2005 is Googles very own Video Traffic Generation platform
It also happens to be the Worlds second largest search engine
There are countless millions of hours of video uploaded every minute.
How to and Review videos are by far and away the most popular type of video
They can be found by typing the right term into the search bar
When it comes to free email services, Google has the territory there without question
You can be absolutely certain that when sending an email from your Inbox that it will reach its destination
Though it’s not an app, Gmail uses an Extension called Mail Track
Mail Track tracks the emails you send
When they get opened, Gmail notifies you
Gmail, lets you organize your inbox into Folders, Labels, and Filters
It even lets you tell it what you don’t want going to the spam box.
If you have multiple Gmail Accounts, as some people do, then you can have all of them working from one central one
Drive is the Google Equivalent of Microsoft Word, but slightly superior
In Drive you can prepare documents,, PDFs, and Folders for anything you want
Absolutely essential for planning your week, Google Calendar, works seamlessly with other 3rd Parties
An example of this is Zoom the video technology software. Which you can Pin to your calendar with ease
It makes planning your week, so much easier and in some cases better than a paper diary
6. Google Translate
Now while this might not seem as important as some of the others, it has its place
For example, if you are a blogger, then occasionally you might get left comments in a foreign language
After all, if your writing has left an impression on the reader, whose native tongue might not be English
They might leave a comment in their native language
This can be easily translated with Google Translate
Likewise, if you are speaking online with someone whose first language is not English
Then you can translate what they mean and reply in their native language, using Google Translate
7. Google Adsense
Now like them or loathe them, they have their place
What are Google Ads?
In simple terms. they are the ads, which if you have an Adsense approved account, you can choose to show them
If you are a blogger, then Adsense is a great way to earn from Google, just by writing
Google Ads are content dependent, so the better the quality of your writing, the more relevant the ads
You can choose where they get placed.
This blog runs Google Ads, as well las other relevant ads related to blogging
When people click on an ad that they are drawn to, then Google will pay you
Now the Per Click might not be much, but if you are posting regular content
The small amounts amount up
Google has a minimum payment threshold of $60
Once you exceed this, Google pays you, direct to your bank account
So, there you have it
