Everyone likes to think that they’re a Google guru but chances are that there are plenty of tips and tricks that even you don’t know about. Today we want to take a look at five tricks that you should know.
2. Have a favorite website and really wishing that there were more websites like it? Did you know that there’s a Google search function for that? Assuming your favorite website is Gearfuse, simply type “related:www.gearfuse.com” in the Google search bar!
3. Want to search for one item but include all similar terms, for example “German Shepherd” and all other names for the dog breed? Use the “~” icon. An example of this would be typing the following in the Google search bar: “~German Shepherd”
4. Looking for information on a new gadget but hoping to weed out a less than reliable source in your search results? Simply type your search term followed by a minus sign and the site you wish to remove from the search results. For example: “new iPhone release date –site:Wikipedia.org.”
5. Are you looking for a specific file type? For example only images in PNG format? Try using this file type search method: “new iPhone –filetype: PNG”
