We need effective methods of searching on a search engine to find the right information. It is very difficult to know what we need to search for when we are not having full knowledge of the subject. Example People face a lot of difficulties when they need to search for an answer to any Maths question. Yes, I would like to tell you it is very difficult to search maths solution on search engines. Finding results of Boolean algebra simplification questions is very difficult if you are weak in Boolean algebra.
1. Search between Either this or that (Either this| or that)
Sometimes we are not sure that the information we remembered is correct or the keyword we need to start our search will give a right result on search engines. By using ‘|’ this special symbol you can separate keywords for the same topic and you can also use keyword OR Instead of the special symbol ‘|’ i.e is used for OR. Then it is very easy to choose the result that makes the most sense for our search. example Harry Potter | book, John or WWE, WWF | undertaker and so on.
Example Harry Potter | book, John or WWE, WWF | undertaker and so on.
2. Searching using synonyms to find the right result
The English language is full of synonyms and same words can have different meanings which make search engines AI to give the wrong results. Sometimes this can be very important and convenient when we doing online research on the specific topic. If you want to find sites on a given subject you want rather than those subjects that include a specific phrase. Add this “~” symbol to your search keyword to find right site with your category example is given below.
Example, if you search for the keyword healthy you can search “healthy ~Diet” then you will get results on the principles of healthy diet, cooking recipes of a balanced diet, as well as healthy eating and dining options.
3. Searching articles within sites you want to read
Sometimes you read a knowledgeable article on an Internet on any site and find yourself wanting to reread the same article on other day or wants to share it with your friends online. The simplest way to find the same article again is to search within the site name it belongs to And To do this first type the address of the site and then a term or keyword or the entire phrase from the article you want to find, the result will show up quickly.
4. Use of asterisk in Searching
When we forget one keyword, term, phrases, or numbers we want to find what we are looking for in actual, you can use the powerful “*” symbol in such cases. You Just need to use this in the place of the phrase, number or word you cannot remember anymore, and I am sure search engines will able to find what you are looking for in actual.
5. When lots of words are missing from the phrase that you want to search for
If it is more than 10 line phrase and you cannot remember more than a single key word from that phrase, try to write AROUND + the approx number of missing words between the first and last word of the phrase. Example: – Twinkle AROUND(3) star or Baba AROUND(4) Wool.
6. Use of time frame in search
Sometimes we urgently wanted to search for events that occurred during a certain period of time and we know the time and event. To do that you can add a time frame to your search term by using three dots between the dates of the event. For example, if you want to find out the history of the British rule in India in the 20th century, we can search for “British rule in India 1900-2000.”
7. Searching for a URL or TITLE
To help find the keywords or term with the name of an article you want to search, you can type like Intitle:YourKeyword before the search keyword, without any blank spaces between them. In order to find the words from a URL, you can use Inurl:YourKeyword.
8. Finding similar websites
If you have found something you really love to watch online and want to reach similar sites for that you can type in “related:” and then the address of the website, again type without a space between the keyword and site. example MiniMilitiaModTopBestList.in.
9. Search in order you want to search for i.e Whole phrases
Framing the search keyword within “quotation marks” is the easiest and also most effective way to find out something specific and in the exact same order you typed it in for the search.
For example, if you type in the keywords Let me be your hero baby quotation without quotation marks, the search engine will give the results wherever all these terms appear in any following order on a site, So they can be in Any order.
If you type “Let me be your hero baby” within quotation marks then you will get only those results where these words appear only in the order you typed them for a search. This is the best way to find out the lyrics of a song on word wide web when you only knew one line from the whole song.
10. Remove Unimportant search words
To remove unimportant search words i.e the words that you do not want to search for any query, then simply you can write a minus operator before each one of them. For example, if you want to search for a website about interesting computer games, but you are not looking to buy those games then, you can simply write the following query: God of War -Buy.
11. How to search anything with Pictures
Yes, You can search for anything on Google and other search engines with Pictures. For that, You need to type the search keyword and then in the end type With pictures. Example, How to make a drone with pictures. This query will give result about making a drone with pictures.
12. If you know programming languages then you know the use of “&&”
Same like in trick first i.e about OR (symbol “|”) this time I am going to show you the use of And symbol “&&” in searching information on Google. Why I am writing Google everywhere because I am not sure all these tricks will work on every search engines but on Google I use them myself. I am mastering SEO so this is one of my Job to know more about search engines. You can use “&&” example Taj Mahal && Lucknow. This search query will give result related to Taj Mahal in Lucknow.
