Editorial Reviews


"After 10 years of using Google, and 10 years of working on Search, it turns out there are still things about searching on Google that I don't know! Let Google Power Search make you smarter, quickly."
-- Avinash Kaushik, Author of Web Analytics 2.0, Web Analytics: An Hour A Day

"The myth that most humans only make use of 10% of their brains has been busted. But Stephan Spencer's new book, Google Power Search, has confirmed that most humans only make use of 10% of Google's immense power to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. You will learn how to use Google to find documents people thought weren't public, complete a market research scavenger hunt, and even find people to link to you. This small book lives up to its big promise of being 'The Essential Guide to Finding Anything Online with Google'."
-- Greg Jarboe, president and co-founder of SEO-PR, author of YouTube and Video Marketing: An Hour a Day, and member of the faculty at the Rutgers Center for Management Development and Market Motive

"How often do you get asked a question that is as simple to answer as hopping over to Google and doing search? Most people don't push Google much further beyond the search box. That's a tragedy. Thankfully, there are people like Stephan Spencer and a book like Google Power Search that will turn you from a searcher into a finder. Amaze your friends! Impress your peers!...and become your own digital version of Sherlock Holmes. Google Power Search makes it elementary, my Dear Watson."
-- .Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image and author of Six Pixels of Separation and CTRL ALT Delete

-- Adam Audette, President, RKG

"Everybody has access to Google. But not everybody has access to the mad Google skills Stephan Spencer has honed over the past dozen years. Read this book to find things faster and become more knowledgeable, hirable, promote-worthy and just plain interesting."
-- Jim Sterne, Producer of The Emetrics Marketing Optimization Summit, Chairman of the Web Analytics Association

"I found at least two useful tips on every page of this short and sweet book. The market research chapter should be required reading for anyone who plans to spend any time or money on a new business."
-- Howard Jacobson, Co-author of Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, co-author of Google AdWords for Dummies

-- Rand Fishkin, CEO and Founder, SEOmoz

"Stephan knows the ins-and-outs about Google like nobody's business."
-- Danny Sullivan, Editor In Chief,, and producer SMX: Search Marketing Expo

It will take you from a novice Google user to an advanced Google user who can find his way around the web effectively."
-- Khalid Saleh, CEO, Invesp
