Here, Let us know how to use Google advanced search tips and tricks.
So, I would like to go a step further and want to tell you some more tricks what you may not know that are existed in Google. Yes, our regular Google assistant has some more tricks included within it, which you may don’t know that will work. Some tips to search engine optimization and advanced guide google search is supplied here.
Google has a Special Extension for Every Country
A basic example of what you don’t know about Google is – We know that Google is different for the different country. For example, if you are from America, the Google has an extension of google.com and if you are from India, the extension for Google will be google.co.in, and if you are from France it will be google.fr.
Google in every country has its own extension which will show the results from that country itself. That means you cannot directly search for something in France staying in the United States. This problem can be avoided by simply using – ‘/NCR’ after the google.fr. That means if you wanted to search from France database staying in the United States, simply enter google.fr/NCR in the search bar.
Yeah, let us see some more tricks and Google advanced search tools.
Search content of a single site in Google Advanced Search
We know that Google searches a topic from thousands of websites and displays for you. But do you know that the Google can search a single website and it can display all the content in it? Yes, it does. If you wanted to see all the posts in www.techystart.com, you need not have to look on every page to see every content on the website.
Simply search for everything that is in techystart.com in the Google. The context to enter into Google to search for the techystart.com will be site:techystart.com. Simply enter the above line in Google search bar and you will find the list of all posts on the Google Homepage.
Google Autocomplete in Google Advanced Search
You know that if you are searching for a phrase, if you enter the starting words, the Google will automatically complete the entire sentence for you and you can select one which you want to search for. But there is one more advanced trick in autocomplete in Google. That is if you enter the entire phrase in Google and if you want to replace a certain word with another, Google does it with ease.
In many search engines, if you want to know an unknown word in a sentence if you simply put a star mark, the search engine will suggest you the missing word. But in Google, if you want to replace a word you can simply delete the word you want to replace and leave space in its place, and the Google will suggest you many sentences with the word replaced.
For example, if you search for how to get an iPhone, and if you want to replace the word ‘get’ simply delete it from the sentence and in that place the Google will suggest you other similar or different words.
Find the Alternatives
Yes, this is my favorite search in overall Google. You can find different alternatives for a single search term or a product or an app or an item simply in the Google search suggestions. Basically, it was the Google autocomplete, which we can use for finding alternatives.
If you are using WhatsApp and you want to know the best alternatives of WhatsApp, you would search for alternatives of WhatsApp in the Google. And it would suggest best articles on WhatsApp alternatives. But you can simply do this in search bar itself. Simply type ‘WhatsApp vs’, and it will suggest you the best WhatsApp alternatives from the autocompletes.
Avoid Annoying Search Results
Google is an algorithm which finds the exact or the term related to what your search is and points whatever post is related to your search and displays it on your computer screen. While doing this unknowingly it may show the results which you don’t need.
For example, if you are searching for an apple in the Google, and you are searching only for the Apple company. Google will not understand that you are searching for Apple company, it will show the results including apple fruit and the Apple company. In this case, you can exclude some results which contain the Apple fruit. To do that you can simply enter ‘-fruit’ in Google search bar after the Apple. Then the Google will exclude the results including the fruit.
Use Quotes to Search Exact Terms
Google algorithm is different in that it doesn’t show exact terms what you search in Google for. It determines the meaning of what you are searching for and it searches for synonyms, related phrases and provides you with the best result for you. If you want the exact term that is used in any post, add quotation marks before and after the sentence, you wanted to search in Google for. And it will show you all the results including the exact search terms.
For example, if you want to search for exact term Google advanced search tips and tricks, you can enter “Google advanced search tips and tricks” in the Google search bar and will show you the posts having the exact search term.
The Google always try to improve its algorithms to make its uses more and more comfortable. And at the same time, it makes its users have fun using its products. One of such is the Google games. If you search on Google for elgoog.im a separate Google tab with many games and inverted image views, mirror views and many more will be shown for you. You can have fun with them.
