10 Super Google Search Tips

Try Google’s Wonder Wheel

To see more related search terms faster, enter your query and, on the left panel, select “Related Searches.” A list of related search queries is displayed above the first result. To see the top eight search results displayed in a diagram, select Wonder Wheel from the left panel instead.

Leverage Search Alerts

Using real-time search, Google can send you e-mails each time information on a given query appears on the web. Specify blogs, news, updates, videos, and more.

Use Search Engine Operators

Hunt phrases with “”, exclude words with -, search specific websites with “site:www.sitename.com.” Use * as a wildcard (any possible letter or word in a search phrase—ex.: “water *” turns up results such as “water cooler,” “water filter,” or “water fountain”), and search for words in URLs with “inurl:”.

Power Shop

Buying a gift for someone? Enter the product name in Google and select “Shopping” in the left panel. You’ll see a list of online and in-store retailers that sell the product. Scroll down in the left panel to refine your search by brand name, price, product category, and store availability.

Take Advantage of Shortcuts

Find movie times by entering “movie” into your search. Find sports scores by searching a team name and the word “scores.” Track packages by entering the tracking code directly into Google. Pull up maps of unknown areas by entering zip codes directly into Google. Get the current time in another time zone by searching “time” and a city.
