Sharing in Google Docs made easy

Google docs can be identified as: private; anyone with a link; or public on the web.

- Private: Docs start out as private. When you first create a doc, you are the only person with access to it. From there, you can give access to other people.

- Anyone with the link: If you set your doc to “Anyone with the link,” it’s like an unlisted phone number. In the same way that anyone who knows an unlisted phone number can call it, anyone who knows the web address or URL of that doc can view it.

- Public on the web allows anyone the ability to find and access that particular doc on the web. For example, you could create a flyer for a concert, save it as a public doc, post a link to it on your blog. Public docs are automatically indexed by search engines like Google, so they may appear in search results as well.
