Web giant Google’s note taking service offers a fast and simple user experience. Evernote also sports a nice set of note tools. I tried both of the service’s web versions. Here I present a comparative scenario.[table “” not found /]
Google Keep and Evernote both offer some common basic features. If you were looking for a simple, fast and sync enabled note taking service, Google Keep can meet your needs. But if your requirements are more than just writing and storing notes, then Evernote can be an awesome solution. Evernote enables storing notes in several formats. It supports greater variety of file types to work with. Evernote also lets you collaborate with other people which is not possible in Google Keep.
Given that, Google Keep is free, at least until now. On the other hand, Evernote has both free and paid versions. The latter supports more platforms than Keep.
However, if you are a heavy Google user, Keep can be a good solution for your personal note taking needs. Otherwise probably you are going to utilize the tool collections of Evernote.

If you’re interested in Evernote, I’d recommend you to read Jeremy Roberts’ book called Evernote Every Day. It will bring you to a new level of using Evernote through a series of practical, easy to follow guides.
Another book that you may find interesting is Evernote Essentials by Brett Kelly. Everybody who buys this book gets all future versions, free of charge, for the life of the product.
