We all use Google for searching in the internet. Here i give you the Tips to get your required results accurately.

 

Google Operator:

Google has several google operators that can help you find specific information. Below is the Important ones.

define: – This google operator will find definitions for a certain term or  word over the Internet. Very useful when you come across a strange word when writing a post. I use this as a google dictionary. example : (define computer)

info: – The google info operator will list the sets of information that Google has from a specific website (i.e. info:https://cabalpalace.wordpress.com)

site: – This google operator can be used to see the number of indexed pages on your site (i.e.site:www.cabalpalace.wordpress.com). Alternative it can also be used to search for information inside a specific site or class of sites.

link: – This google link operator allows you to find backlinks pointing to your site. Unfortunately the count is not updated frequently and not all backlinks are shown

allinurl: – Using this Google operator will limit the search to results that contain the desired keywords on the URL structure. (i.e. allinurl:dailyblogtips)

fileformat: – Useful Google operator for finding specific file formats. Sometimes you know that the information you are looking for is likely to be contained in a PDF document or on a PowerPoint presentation, for instance. (i.e. “fileformat:.pdf market research” will search for PDF documents that contain the terms “market” and “research”).
