The official Google blog has been the search advertising company’s way of discussing its business moves and other actions over the course of the previous year.

Google broke its down in its last post for 2005, citing the various blog entries and bloggers that got it to 201 posts over the year.

“During the year, we’ve published 38 how-to tips, announced 77 new products and services, and addressed policy questions and legal matters 17 times. We’ve featured 11 guest bloggers,” Google Blog team’s Karen Wickre posted. “Forty posts have illuminated something about day to day life at Google; 19 have offered some international perspective.”

The analytics reports showed an international side to the Google blog’s visitors as well, despite only being published as an English-language entity. Wickre cited thousands of visitors from France and Turkey, along with many from Thailand and Peru.

Wickre also listed some of the posts that generated a lot of “link love” from bloggers who linked to them:

Many thanks to Google for giving WebProNews so much to write about in 2005, and we’ll look forward to more in 2006.
