Hello Dear Friends, Collogues and Students,

I am Prijith Jacob Thomas working with Fatima Matha National College Kollam Kerala India The purpose of this presentation is purely academic. I happen to go through a Book titled “ Google Secrets by Yvette Davis Published by Wiley India Pvt Ltd. When I went through that document the scope of Google search and services of Google was really amazing. Then I decided to share this information in the form a presentation. My Initial presentation consisted of 134 slide compiling all the products of Google. After discussion with friends I decided to split the presentation into small modules and present in a series. This presentation is first in this series .
