Default Google search techniques

Searching in Google, the good way | Code Purity


There are huge set of techniques by which searching in Google can be done more accurately, and here is a list of them that I frequently use.


1. Whenever we search for more than one keyword (i.e. computer programming, here we use 2 key word. a) computer b) programming) at a time Google will handle this keyword using a method called Boolean Default. Google's Boolean default is AND; that means if we enter query words without modifiers, Google will search for all of them. If we search for:

computer programming


Google will search for all the words. If we want to specify that either word is acceptable, we can put an OR between each item:

computer OR programming


If we want to exclude a query item from search results, use a -.(minus sign or dash:

computer -programming


Note that there is no space after the (-) sign.

2. To search for a phrase use "" surrounding the phrase. like:

"Some Interesting Google Search Technique"

3. Period (.) and Asterisk (*) can also be used as traditionally used.

4. To search anything from a specific site use site:site_name.

google site:share-facts.blogspot.com

This will search for the term google only in the specified site. Note that there is no space after the ( sign.

Eg: ead site:immigrationvoice.org

5. To restrict search to title of web pages we can use intitle:search_keyword

intitle:google

6. Use inurl:search_keyword to restrict search to the URLs of web pages.

inurl:google

7. To search in body text use intext:search_keyword

intext:html

8. Searches for text in a page's link anchors

inanchor:"google desktop"

9. To search for a specific filetype use filetype:desired_file_type

bangladesh filetype : pdf

10. To search a copy of the page that Google indexed even if that site/page is no longer available at its original URL or has since changed its content completely. This is particularly useful for site/pages that change often.

cache:share-facts.blogspot.com

Default Good info

Thanks.

Now something that had been on top of my mind for long. Does anyone know how to make Google include subjective interpretation to search query? I will elaborate ...

Say you want to search for all the work been done or being done on say "teapot". Normally you type in "teapot" in search bar and Google will dump millions of results. And those results would be screened objectively based on the search query i.e. "teapot". But interestingly, "kettle" is also a synomous for "teapot" but since the search was objectively driven, this subjective association would be excluded. This is just an example, I framed to explain my point.

A quick answer to above would be to include any synomous words, but we all know in techonological world and especially in the IP area, their could numerous ways to hid the information while maintaining it on public forums. If you have been engaged in IP development, you will understand what I am talking about.

Aah_GC is on a distinguished road

Search has a common syntax across the web, not just for Google. Perhaps you were sounding synonomous with Google.

For those of you who haven't tried yet, try out Bing - its an awesome Search tool. With Yahoo merging it's Search properties with Bing - it is bound to gain more marketshare.

Google has wonderwheel added recently which displays related items to your search keyword (not necessarily synonyms) in a map.

"Semantic search" is what you are looking for. There is a lot of work going on in this area.
I think you know how to know more about it
