Now let’s we see how to search using keywords.
5. Using quotes(“”)
Use quotes(“”) for searching the phrase exactly. The result will yield only pages with the same words in the same outsider as what’s in the quotes. So Place quotation marks (“) around the phrase you’d like to search for
Eg: “to be, or not to be”
6. Using dash(-):
When searching words with multiple meanings place a dash (-) before the word or site you want to omit. You just try searching the following example with dash and without dash, the resultant of both the search will differ. If you add dash before any word the Google omits that word, here Arizona is omitted.
Ex: phoenix – Arizona
7. Using (+)
If you want to search any blood group or Google+ pages, place plus sign (+) in front of it.
Eg: AB+, +chrome
8. Using (@) :
Place the at (@)symbol before the social tags.
9. Using asterisk (*)
You can use the asterisk symbol within quotes to specify unknown or variable words. It’s helpful to find the missing word. For eg: you want to know the song lyrics, but you are not sure about the second or third word, type the known word and place* in the unknown place, Google brings the answer immediately.
10. Eg: “All that * is not gold.”
The missing word is glitter, you will get as a search result.
11. To Search websites:
Use the keyword “site:” that searches only a particular website.
12. For comparing:
If you want to compare the two things or objects use the keyword “Vs.” For eg: carnivore Vs herbivore. You will get the exact comparison.
13. To find meaning:
Use the keyword “DEFINE:” This option can even provide meanings, acronyms etc
For example: Define: Vivacious. It defines about the given word
Define: ATM. It provides expansion of it.
Note: Now Google is very smart, without this keyword it suggests meaning of any word.
