I use Google Docs rather than a blog to write articles and I'd like them to be readable by the public. But I've never seen Google Docs results in Google Search results.
Is it possible?
How do I make it appear?

One constraint on all of these approaches is that they will not work well, or at all, with images. I cannot think of any way around this, apart from manually adding them to your posts after you have published them from Docs.

There is a way to do this, however it requires using a third-party service: Sourceful. You can submit your Google doc here
