Life is so cool now! Assignments in minutes and winning a debate in seconds has become possible because of the advancement in technology as any piece of information is just a click away. But it can be a lot of harassment if we get confused or don’t get the exact piece of information that we want and may end up wasting our time.
So, here are a few tricks which can help you get the exact information in few minutes.
OR IS THE WORD!
If you are not sure about the correctness of the word or are confused by a few words, then the word “ OR” is your savior. Write down the potential variations and use the word
“OR”. All the possible results will be displayed and you can select your desirable result.
USE OF SYNONYMS
Another way to help yourself get the correct information is using synonyms. You can also use ~ in your keyword to get information on a particular subject. It will help you get all the related information on that particular subject.
SITES AT YOUR AID
Searching within sites is another trick that helps you get your desired information every time. All you need to do is just use the best site by typing in its address and along with it the topic on which you want the information for. This will help you get the information.
USE OF ASTERISK
Using ASTERISK is another great way to help Google get the desired information fast. In case you don’t really remember the whole phrase or Google tends to get confused, just use this symbol with the phrase. You will definitely feel satisfied with the results and our advice.
WORD MISSING! NO WORRIES!
Sometimes we forget a few words of the phrase which we want to Google and are left with a few stupid results not matching our desired search. So, to save yourself from the situation, just write the first few words and last few words and add AROUND(+) in between them. (+) Here write the number of words missing and you will have your results displayed.
USE TIME FRAMES
Yes! Using time frames will surely save your time and energy. If you want to know about some important historical event , just use time frames by using three dots in between the years ( eg 1453…1815).
INTITLE AT RESCUE
If you are not being able to find the keywords or title of an article, this trick might help you. Using the word “intitle” before your query will lead you to a lot of results related to your topic. Same can be done if you want to find keywords from a URL, by typing “inurl” .
Many a times, we like something so much that we want to search similar things. In such a case, all you need to do is use the word “related” before the site address you liked and results related to it will be displayed.
TYPING IT THE WAY IT IS!
Typing the phrase exactly the way it is the best way to get the desired information. So, write the phrase in between the quotations and chances are Google will please you the most. If quotations are not used, Google will display each and every site where the words are used and then it is only your luck that might help you.
EXCLUDING UNIMPORTANT WORDS
Many a times, we are left with undesirable results because Google displays unimportant ad results which only confuse us more. For example, if you want to know about the best historical place, Google tends to show you sites also about holiday plans to visit there. In such a case, just type “best historical places” followed by a – visit.
