There is no denying that Google has redefined the way we see and use the Internet in recent years. From Search, to YouTube, Google+, and Adsense, many of the company’s products and properties have become part of our daily lives.
How many products and properties exactly? It’s hard to tell. However, I spent a couple of hours trying to find them. The results are in the list below — with some tips and tricks thrown in the mix.
I would like this list to be as exhaustive as possible, so feel free to submit more links!

A list of useful links to understand and use Google better, especially Google+.
Why do platforms like Google Search, YouTube, and Google+ continue to grow their active user base? To me, the answer is simple: they all provide a good user experience.

Google+ is a different kind of social network. The tactics, tricks, gimmicks, schemes and strategies for driving traffic and attention that work on link-centric social networks such as Twitter and Facebook don't get traction on Google+.
