I've downloaded both Pokemon Go and Ingress, and I think I like Ingress better; it seems more interesting to me.
Here are some resources I've found for playing Ingress.

How to Create a Link:
Creating Links between Portals is a key step toward creating Control fields to earn Mind Units and AP. To create a link between two Portals, the following conditions must apply:
Both the Origin and Destination Portals of the Link must have all eight Resonators deployed on each portal.
Each of the eight Resonators must be above the Critical XM health level.
The agent must hold the Portal Key for the Destination Portal in their inventory.
The Destination Portal must be within the distance range of the origin Portal, as determined by the overall level of the origin Portal.
The link you wish to create must not cross any other link.
To Establish the Link:
Stand next to the origin Portal.
Touch the origin Portal in the Scanner view.
Touch the LINK button in the Portal details view.
Touch a highlighted Portal in the Scanner view; or
Open the carousel of Portal Keys from the side of the Scanner view, and select a particular Portal Key for the destination Portal.
Touch CONFIRM to establish the Link.
