Google, the Power of the Internet into Your hands
Google has come a long way since all the way from 1997 when the domain name Google.com was finally coined and the search giant came to life. Over there were many other search engines that popped up, but in terms of efficiency and results, Google is at the top of the game. Google uses a certain program, also known as Google bots or spiders that scour the website and gather information in order to update their search index. So sometimes it’s not easy to find what you are particularly looking for on the world wide web as you begin searching for a certain something. The results get mixed with trash and you’re left scratching your head. Well now we are going to discuss some very efficient ways to which we can greatly enhance our searches Google.
Stay to the point: Don’t go all panicky and type the whole history of our query. Break down your problems into small chunks, a search for only those core problems. For example, if your PC doesn’t turn on and is getting overheated very quickly, don’t type the whole thing into the search bar. Instead, type “PC overheat solutions”. Try both and you will amazed to see the difference in the results.
A few Google hacks: Staying up to the point is okay, but that sometimes isn’t enough either. You will be amazed at how just by attaching a few keywords to your searches you will get exactly what you were looking for. “Tutorial”, “Guide”, “How to” and “Solved”. Attach these keywords to your searches, for example, if your phone is bricked during rooting or jail breaking type in “phone unbrick guide”. You will see that rather than just some helpful tips, you will be presented with an actual guide or tutorials which will guide you as how to actually go about the process itself.
Mention the year: searching for a solution and ending up with a 5-year-old solution isn’t very helpful. Mention the date in your searches and you with presented with up to date information regarding the problem.
Specify your search: You can use the minus(-) sign to cut off unnecessary search results that come with a particular search. For example, if you want to search about guitars, but don’t like the Hawaiian guitar you can type “guitar types –Hawaiian”. This can be extremely helpful while weeding out the unwanted information.
Search within a website without actually visiting it: There are many websites that don’t have a search engine of their own. It may be hard to find info on that site, but Google may provide a solution. There is a modifier or a search keyword that will search the website for the relevant that you provide. The syntax- site: <the website you want to go> <”what you want to search in the website”>. Example : site:olx.co.in “car sales”.
Search for a website with a particular title: Use the keyword “title: <words you want to find in the name of the website> <what you want to search on the website>. This search will only give the name of those websites which have the word you typed right after “title:”.
