Google has Linux software repositories setup for you to easily stay up to date with their Linux softwares. Their repositories support  APT, YUM, YaST, urpmi and RPM.

However, only Google Desktop and Google Picasa are published on the repositories. Google earth has to be downloaded and installed manually.
