Google is known as one of the most powerful search engines in the world and it can be an incredibly useful tool for a variety of different people. Whether you are a business looking to promote your products or if you are a consumer researching new businesses, the advantages of Google are immense. Below are some tips to consider if you are interested in learning how to effectively use Google.
Tip 1: Exact Phrases
If you’re trying to remember the movie that a particular line comes from or perhaps trying to find a song that has a lyric that’s stuck in your head, you may be looking for ways to search exact phrases on Google. You will want to use quotation marks while searching to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of results.
Tip 2: Specific Results
If you’re looking for a very specific result by searching for an incredibly typical word, it can always be advantageous to add a dash before the specific thing that you are looking for. As an example, if you are typing in The Great Gatsby add –movie to your search so that you do not receive results for the book.
Tip 3: Searching Inside of a Site
You may not have heard that you can search through a website without having to actually visit the site itself. If you’re interested in looking for a particular thing on a website, the format is as follows (searching for):(thewebsite.com).
Tip 4: All or One Keyword Included
It can be a rather time consuming venture to scroll through an abundance of text in order to find a specific thing, which is why using the following format on Google will help you to browse through all of the search results without having to waste the majority of your time. As an example, allintext: leprechauns pot of gold. This also applies if you are looking for a single keyword in an abundance of text such as The Beatles intext: all you need is love.
Tip 5: Location Specific
You may be looking for a particular thing in a specific area in the world, whether it is locally or on a content across the ocean. If you’re looking for something in a specific location, consider the following: (search item) location: (name of location).
Tip 6: Specific File Type
If you’re conducting a research paper, it can sometimes be easier to read through .PDFs or .PPTs. With that being said, you can also search for items that have a specific file type by using: (item you’re searching for) file type: (name of file type).
