Friends, now a days word Google is synonymous to word search engine. I think this will soon become official and would be included in dictionary :).
Well, now coming to our topic. Well, you all must be using Google a lot for your daily search about various topics. Today, I am writing about how to make your search results more relevant and streamlined. You just need to need take care of below points to achieve good results.
1) Use operators in your search terms : These are some symbols which if included in your search term would give you very good results. Below are some examples. Operators are in blue colour.
Search term Find pages containing
Computer Virus the words Computer and Virus
Computer OR Virus either of the word Computer or Virus
“tech2know mobile phone” the exact phrase tech2know mobile phone
There are a number of operators. You can take a look at all of then in Google cheat sheet.
2) Use Advanced image search to find wallpapers which are exactly of the size of your desktop : At times you want to search for wallpapers for your desktop but the resulting wallpapers doesn’t fit on your desktop. Well, solution is already mentioned in this points heading. The procedure is also quite simple.
Go to http://images.google.com –> Click on ‘Advanced image search’ –> Click on ‘Use my desktop size’.
3) Use Google Squared to get results in a grid or spread sheet format : Take a look at Google Squared for more information.
4) Use Any time option to find pages according to time when they were published : Sometimes you search for a term and are more interested in the pages, say that were published in the past 24 hours or past week. So, just use this option. Below are screen shots.
Here I have searched for ‘term ‘Computer hardware’.
*On the search result page, click on ‘Show options’.
*Afterwards you can choose specific pages which were published in Past 24 hours, Past week or Past year.
Thats it for now.
