Here are some more helpful Google sites to try.

Google Alerts
I use this all the time. I just enter a search term and have Google send the alert directly to my email account.

Google Catalog
View images of catalog pages scanned as part of the Google Base service, which lets people add their own information to Google’s databases.

Google Custom Search Engine
Create your own personal search engine.

Google Directory
The old system of doing things, but for people who are new to searching, it doesn’t need keywords.

Google University
Search just about any university on the planet.

Google Blog Search
Speaks for itself – find a blog on the Internet.

Google News
Breaking news hot off the wire.

Google Groups
Track the groups you belong to or start your own.

Google Map
Get directions and find locations.

Enjoy.
