So it looks like Google has won the search engine wars (until the Next Big Thing). The overwhelming majority of users search for information using Google, some even prefer searching it to collecting a list of bookmarks or frequently used websites. Think you're getting the most out of Google already? You might be surprised to know that Google is actually a whole suite of tools which work together, and that even the humble Google search engine itself keeps adding new capabilities.

If you'd like to learn more about how Google works this presentation is for you. We'll cover the major features of Google Search and touch on other related products like Google Scholar and Google Books. We'll even cover tools for webmasters (Google Analytics) and tools which allow you to build things to make information you specialize in easier to find (Google Co-op and Google Custom Search). We'll also cover what things you're not likely to find using Google, and why you should always remember that just because Google can't find it doesn't mean it doesn't exist (well, not yet).
