15 Search Tricks In Google
Quotation Marks( ” ” )
When you search anything in Google Search, Google tries to give you the best search results based on your search query. But a lot of times it happens that you have to make exactly the same word or verb true. In such a situation, you will search your search query by typing it inside the quotation mark, then Google will show you the results by searching the same word.
Suppose you have to search about the brand of batteries, one brand is exide and the other is amaron. You can search twice about exide and amaron or you can use the or operator. In the search box, type exide and then or amaron (exide or amaron). Now Google will show you the results or pages associated with exide and amaron in the search results.
Logical OR ( | )
Actually, it is called logical or in programming language and it also works like simple or operator. You can use | this operator instead of or, you will get the same results.
You can do a grouping of search operators using brackets. Like we take the example of or, suppose you have to search exide battery review or amaron battery review. So you can search it, in this way you have to search in Google (exide or amaron) battery review.
It has two keywords and between them, you have to put an operator or Google will process it and only then will process the content outside the bracket for search.
Minus ( – )
Minus is used to refine any search. If you are searching and you do not want to see a particular word, then you can use the minus operator(–). Suppose you search for exide battery and you see the largest word in the results.
In such a situation, we search again by adding minus in our search term. In this, you will not see the word which you do not want to see in the search results. Now you will not see such pages or results in Google search results which will contain the largest word.
Asterisk ( * ) is very
Asterisk or Star * is very useful in Research. You have to search in Google Top 10 * In India. When you search by adding * to the top 10, then Google will show you the list of top 10 results and they can be anything.
The range can show results between two numbers. Like we search Nobel Prize winners 2021 and Google shows you the list of Nobel Prize winners 2021. If you search for Nobel Prize 2015, then you will be shown the list of Nobel Prize Winner 2015. But what if you want a list of Nobel Prize winners from 2015 to 2018? The range comes in beneficial in this way, you have to type Nobel Prize Winner 2015..2018 and just Google will show you the list of Nobel Winners from 2015 to 2018.
Like you can check the index of any page by using the site operator. Similarly, on searching the related URL, Google can show you the related website which you are searching. You do not need to use different tools to check the competitor. Next time you just search related:example.com in Google and Google will give you a list of websites which it considers as a competitor of your website on the search results page.
We keep searching, what does it mean, what is its meaning? For this, you can search your query like define:seo. Google will tell you the meaning of that word. If your word is not in English then Google will also give you the translation of your word.
Intitle: will give you results that contain your query or word in the title. For this, you have to search in Google intitle:whatainfo, with the help of this you will get such results whose title will contain your word. If you are searching for the intitle:gpl theme kya hai? In this way and Google is not giving you correct results then you can use allintitle: If you search allintitle:gpl theme kya hai in this way, then Google will give you the correct results or will not mix up the results.
Inurl: and allinurl: do the same thing as intitle: It will not find your search term in the title but finds it in the URL. If you want to search for pages whose URL contains your words, then you can use inurl: You can also use allinurl: it works like allintitle.
Intext: Helps you find your query or word in the text of the page. This intitle works like inurl, but with this search trick, you can see pages that have that word in their text. You can also use this search trick like allintitle: you will get to see some good results.
Around() ( around() )
Around, the search trick is a bit tricky, let’s take the battery example only. We want that both exide and amaron words should come in the same line and you have to see similar pages in the search result. For this, you have to search exide around (6) amaron in Google and Google will show you such pages in which the word amaron comes after exide on or before 6th position. If the word amaron is thereafter more than 6 positions, then Google will not show it in the search.
If you have to search for a particular term or word from a particular website, then you can use the source. In such a situation, you have to search source: ndtv.com aryan khan in Google. After this, you will get a list of all the pages related to Aryan Khan on the NDTV site.
If you want to see any news about a particular topic from a particular place, then you can use location. Like you have to search about the landslide in Shimla, then for this you have to search landslide location:shimla in Google. You will get to see all the news related to the landslide from Shimla.
These were some of the search tricks that you can use to get the results in a smart way. You can increase your search quality and get results according to your own.
