How to Use Google Squared
Introduction to Google Squared
Google Squared is a fantastic tool from Google that takes a search term and returns information, rather than a list of websites. The information is displayed in a simple spreadsheet format and collates every thing you need on to one page, complete with sources.
For instance if you are looking for a local gym, then Google Squared will provide all the gyms in your city, and also give you reviews, opening hours, age range, services offered, location and more, all in one easy to read page!
Of course when it comes to being a webmaster, it is not feasible for small time webmasters to attempt getting indexed in to Google Squared just yet, however i have found it to be an invaluable tool in both research when writing hubs, and for keyword ideas.

Using Google Squared for Research
When it comes to researching information for your hubs, the days of scrolling through a dozen websites are long gone. With Google Squared you can put in a simple search term and receive all the information you require, along with sources. This saves you hours of time visiting useless websites, collecting information and even figuring out exactly what you need to write about!
Check out the image below to see how I used Google Squared when researching my top ten XBox games.
How to Use Google Squared to Write an Article
As you can see from the screenshot above (Click to enlarge) Google Squared gives you a lot more than a list of websites. It lets me see the titles of games, a picture, user reviews, release dates, genre and publisher.
Even better it lets me add my own columns from presets, or I can enter a column name of my own and Google Squared will attempt to retrieve the data, without me having to lift a finger.
In the example above I wanted the latest Xbox games, so all I had to do was type this in to the box, and then sort by date. In litterally seconds I have all the information required to write a fantastic Hub all about my chosen topic thanks to Google Squared!
