Google provides a number of great services for you and your site. Two of the most important are Google Custom Search, and Google Analytics.
The stock WordPress search function is pretty lame, and Google Custom Search far outstrips it in speed and depth of search. The new article, “Google Custom Search Setup,” gives you step-by-step instructions with many illustrations on how to get a Custom Search account, and how to implement it easily in your Thesis theme.
Everybody needs information on what’s going on with their site to plan and make decisions. Google Analytics is a very powerful tool that gives you what you need. “Google Analytics Setup” shows you how to set up a Google Analytics account in an easy-to-follow format with lots of illustrations.
Both these new articles are found in Tips under the “Google Services Setup” submenu.
P.S. Watch for an article on how to set up Google Webmaster Tools soon!
