It is no secret that Google rules the Blogosphere. Lurk in any forum for bloggers and you will find that people want to know how to get a higher page rank, how to show up on the first page of Google search, and how to get people to click on their Google Ads. (Hint: Don’t ask them to click on your ads, Google doesn’t like that!)
The best way to find out how the minds behind Google think is to go to their blogs. And I do me Blogs, as in plural.
I didn’t actually count, but if you peruse the Google Blogs Directory you will find well over 100 blogs on every Google related topic you can think of. There is an amazing amount of information available and you could probably spend months going through it all. So I suggest you start with the Google Webmaster Central Blog.
Google Webmaster Blog has posts on SEO for beginners, using Captcha, and a video post from Matt Cutts on how Google treats links from Twitter.
So before you trust some stranger in a forum to answer your questions about Google, why don’t you go straight to the source and check out the Google Blogs.
