Google has a great course you can take on learning how to use the search engine better. This is a course that I myself have take and I highly recommend that you take a look at it as well.

Google’s search options are arguably some of the most powerful and flexible available, and they’re sure to take you to the results you’re looking for assuming you know how to get the most out of Google Search. If your Google-fu could use a little brushing up, sign up for Power Searching with Google, a free online course being offered by Google’s search division. It’s guaranteed to boost your searching skills.

You may already be familiar with the shortcuts for Google Search I posted here awhile ago, like using the search box as a calculator or finding local movie showtimes by typing [movies] and your zip code. But there are many more tips, tricks and tactics you can use to find exactly what you’re looking for, when you most need it.

The course is broken down into 6 classes and each class is divided into 6 lessons. There are also 2 optional videos you can watch at the end of sections.

Each of the 6 classes take about 45 – 60 minutes to complete and you can take them in your own time over a 2 week period once you start.

So head on over to Google and sign up for the free course. Trust me you won’t regret it.
