I would like to know the difference between along with and alongside, if any. Where is correct usage of both words?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
According to NOAD, along with is a phrase and means together with or accompanying.
Alongside on the other hand is a preposition and means close to the side of, next to; in cooperation with, at the same time as or in coexistence with.
