A Better “GOOGLE”

Searching something on google ……

But tired of just typing in a phrase and wading through page after page of results, there exist lot of too simple ways to make your searches more efficient and getting exactly what you want .

This post requires just 5 min of yours and in return what you will get is– “Everything you ever wanted , every single time…”

I found some of the techniques that really works..


1.       Either/or

If you are looking for wallpapers of Robert pattison but even Brad pitt would do, then this one is for you only…

Search using or operator either try “|” , i.e. search Robert Pattison | Brad Pitt.

2.    Quotes

If you want to search for an exact phrase, use quotes. [“Jack and Jill went up the hill”] will only find the webpages

containing the exact phase, and not the pages that will have the word either Jack or Jill or Hill.

3. Not
If you are searching for Jennifer lopez but while searching half of the results coming  are of Jennifer aniston , then use

not operator i.e. search [-aniston Jennifer  lopez], it will omit all results of aniston, leaving you alone with your lopez!!!

4.      Definitions
Use the “define:” operator to get a quick definition. [define:dumb] will give you a whole host of definitions from

different sources, with links.

5.      Calculator
One of the handiest uses of Google, type in a quick calculation in the search box and get an answer. It’s faster than

calling up your computer’s calculator in most cases. Use the +, -, *, / symbols and parentheses to do a simple equation.

Try solving ((986*123)-3458)/6 via your calculator and then using google…

6.      Numrange

This little-known feature searches for a range of numbers. For example, [“best books 2002..2007] will return lists of

best books for each of the years from 2002 to 2007 (note the two periods between the two numbers).

7.      Site-specific
Use the “site:” operator to search only within a certain website.eg- [site:sumitnangia.wordpress.com Music] will search

for the term “Music” only within the site “sumitnangia.wordpress.com”.
