The GCP documentation contains tons of great content. And if you’re working with a particular service, such as Compute Engine, it’s pretty clear where you should look for information.

But if you want to find solutions and tutorials, or overviews that span the platform, it’s not so obvious where to go. And the search experience on the site isn’t much help, here.

Here’s the tip:

Use the How to Use Google Cloud Platform page to search for docs you might be missing out on. GCP adds new tutorials and solutions all the time, so bookmark this page and use it often.

  • You can type any keyword or phrase into the search box and the page will filter down the results.
  • You can alternatively click one of the links in the right nav to see the pre-baked category filters.
  • You can provide a link to search results by simply appending a hashtag to the end of the URL: https://cloud.google.com/docs/tutorials#java
