Google has quite a lot of products from Google talk to Google Mail and a lot more. One tool I would like to briefly talk about is Google webmaster tools which basically is a tool Google offer you to be able to see how Google views your website. Within this tool there are a lot of features that provide you with different information about your sites performance. Every time you Google search, Google has what they call Google-bots that crawl sites looking for your search term on every site. If you have a webmaster tools account then Google will send you an email if they ever come across any error while crawling your site. Webmaster also provides a report that lists all search queries where your site came up on the results page.

Webmasters has a set of reports it provides the user to analyse their site performance.
