While most people just assume that everybody has a Google Account, that may not be true for all. So, just in case, we’re going to go back to the basics and ask those who haven’t created an account to visit https://accounts.google.com/signup to get started.
If your primary interaction with Google has always been search, you might be surprised by the massive volume of features and applications this single account will have access to. Just by completing this one step you’ve created accounts for Gmail, Google+, YouTube, and several other services. What’s even more impressive is this account can be linked to several other sites for authentication.
It is for this reason that I strongly recommend you consider making this password rather strong. The power of your Google account quickly grows as it’s used. For ideas on how to create a strong password see my post on creating strong passwords.
Once you’ve created your account, sign in at www.google.com.
