comment Can Facebook pages be indexed by Google's search engine?
Well it appears that Google is doing so now: I just googled "some words I know I posted on the wall of a Facbook page site:facebook.com - and my Facebook page IS listed in the search results.

comment How can I google search a defined set of domains/sites for a certain string
That's the one-off solution. For a repeatable solution, see "How to limit Google search result to a set of websites" - webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/70005/…

comment Forgot YouTube account and Password
Who owns the copyright of the songs? If that person or company files a DMCA complaint, it's possible that the videos (not the channel) will be deleted.

What would you do with the data that came back from the query? it's likely that there is an anternative spreadsheet focussed way to solve the underlying problem.

comment How can I publish a word document on the same URL but changing content from time to time?
A filing cabinet is a type of "page" in Google Sites. You make it, and put your file into it - and then you can get a URL for the file which can be used elsewhere.

comment Send from Gmail with another email address as the Reply-to or From address
This approach no longer works: Google requires the "send from" email address to receive a verification code which is then entered before the the Google setup can complete.

comment Error: Circular dependency detected
I cannot see one from what you have posted - but it's hard to tell with a picture. But I have just confirmed that =countif(A8:C12, "Free") should work. See here for an example: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/…

comment Can I get a URL to the latest PDF version of a document?
I don't think that the Manage Revisions tool will help. The fundamental problem seems to be that poster needs to update a Google Docs file regularly, and then make a PDF from it, and then share it. Even with Manage Revisions, these steps won't go away. The only part that it would help with is that the document URL would not change.

Why do you need PDF format?

O)k - so why don't you post that as an alternative answer, which does address the original question.

comment Tweeting without annoying others
But it won't let readers easily find the artist, so fails to address the problem.

comment Can I hide from “Shared with Me” the documents others users shared with me?
I don't read it anywhere. But my experience with Google products is that the don't share details of the product roadmap, far less detailed changes with us, unless those changes involve standard uses. You are proposing a non-standard use, and that is always a risk. You could easily find that one day deleting a file from the Shared with Me list revokes your access to it.

comment Can I hide from “Shared with Me” the documents others users shared with me?
None that I know of today. But Drive is designed around the idea that the Shared With Me folder contains a sortable list of all the documents that have been shared with you, and the idea that you will use search, not folder structures, to find the one you want. There are no guarantees that a alter version of Drive will not change how it handles files if you attempt to "move" them from the Shared with Me list. And as Google often don't announce feature changes, you could do some damage.

comment Can I hide from “Shared with Me” the documents others users shared with me?
I wasn't trying to be witty: the poster is asking to have his cake and eat it to. Google simply doesn't provide any mechanism to organise "shared with me" files at the current time. Any work-around with the Move function may well cause problems with the future versions of Drive.

comment Spreadsheet not sorting properlty
You need to tell us more about the spreadsheet and how it was made. Ideally, make it public and give us a link to it.

comment How to have The Old Reader show more than the 10 first items of my RSS feed
I have a feeling that The Old Reader only shows items for 30 days - could that be the problem? If it is, the I think the only fix is to move to another RSS reader (I went to inoreader)

comment Export blog entries from Blogger
This doesn't do what the question asked for. It generates an xml file which has links to the image-file (wherever it's hosted), nto the actual image.

comment What are the advantages of having custom domain for blogger?
If your ads are AdSense, then the problem is that you signed up through the quick and easy hosted option, but that isn't available for custom domains. Remove your ads, and then go to www.adsense.google.com and go through the full signup process - this includes placing some test-ads in using HTML-gadgets.

comment What are the advantages of having custom domain for blogger?
No, a custom domain does not necessarily mean more traffic. There are opinion-based arguments about whether it might cause you to look more attractive in search-results - and alternative opinions that the quality of your content has a bigger effect on this. But the fact-based answer is that there is nothing intrinsically better about custom domains.
