Few people don’t know that Google exists. There is nothing in the world that Google doesn’t know. Any search performed from Google’s main page will search Google’s database of web content. You can also click on links to explore other Google databases such as Images, Videos, News, Books, and Maps.

Other databases are available through the More link. The service also allows you to set up a customized Google home page using the “Sign in” button for your Google account in the upper right corner of the page.

To perform a basic search, you need to enter the search terms and, if necessary, any operators into the search box and click on one of the two buttons available. We are talking about the “Google Search” and “I’m Feeling Lucky” buttons. Press the “Google Search” button or the Enter key (when the cursor is in the search field), and you will get a list of results. If you click on “I’m Feeling Lucky,” the search is done, but instead of a list of results, you are taken to the page that was the first result. It’s the same as if you clicked on “Google Search,” saw the results list, and clicked on the first one yourself.

The “I feel lucky” option is appropriate when you’re sure exactly where you’ll end up. For example, if you query for terms like Microsoft, Nike or Wikipedia, you will go straight to www.microsoft.com, www.nike .com, and www.wikipedia.org, respectively. But if you’re looking for something more complicated or don’t want to risk seeing something potentially inappropriate, the standard “Web search” command is the way to go.

 

Advanced Google Search

Google Advanced Search lets you take full advantage of the Google search engine through a single page. It combines many search tricks, special features, and search tools on one screen. Here you can search with different operators, conditions, file types, usage rights, language, and region, activate safe searches, and much more using the advanced search feature. You can access advanced search by tapping Settings > Advanced Search in the lower-right corner of the Google homepage or by going directly to the advanced search page.

You can start by limiting your search by words (which should be in the results or shouldn’t be there).

You can also “narrow the results by…”. And here is where you must choose from additional options, depending on the search type.

 

So what kind of advanced search options does Google offer?

  • Language

Here, you can limit your search results to those written in a particular language. More than 40 languages are available, from Afrikaans to Vietnamese. Default value: “Any language”.

  • Region

Here you have a list of countries that Google suggests limiting search results to (and this is almost every country in the world). More often than not, results will come from pages whose names contain the two-letter country code of your choice.

  • Last Update

This option allows you to limit your search results to pages that have been updated in the last 24 hours, seven days, a month, or a year. It is important to understand that this date is based on the date the page was last indexed, not on live page data, as it usually is at the time of the search.

  • Site or Domain

Limit your search results to a specific domain. For example, to retrieve information from US government sites only, specify “.gov” in this field. Or, to retrieve data from Microsoft sites only, type microsoft.com.

  • The Appearance of Terms

In this field, you can specify where you would like google to search: “anywhere on the site,” “in the title,” “in the article text,” “in the page URL,” and “in the link to the page.”

  • Safe Search

SafeSearch is Google’s technology for filtering out potentially inappropriate content. This option allows you to modify your browser settings to exclude adult content from search results. The default setting for SafeSearch is off. To turn Safe-Search on, open the drop-down menu, then click “Filter explicit results.”

Doing so will filter out sexually explicit videos and pictures from Google’s search results pages, as well as results suggesting that they contain links to explicit content. To disable the SafeSearch filter, open the menu again and click “Show Most Relevant Results.” Keep in mind that no filter is perfect. Even Google says that “sometimes inappropriate sites slip through the cracks.”

  • Reading Level

Narrow your search results to a specific reading level: Basic, Medium, or Advanced. You can also select an annotation of the results with the reading level, which will include a percentage distribution of the results by reading level.

  • File Type

This option allows you to restrict or exclude results in a particular file type, such as PDF, Postscript, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and RTF (rich-text format). Many government reports, for example, are published in PDF format, so restricting this format may make it easier to find a particular report.

  • Usage Rights

When using someone else’s content on the Internet, it is always a good idea to check the usage rights set by the owners of the pages. The Permissions filter shows pages with a Creative Commons license or in the public domain. The Google Search rights filter can help you to start, but it should not be the only research you do before you use other people’s content.

In this article, we will tell you about some tricks of Google that will delight and surprise you, as well as help you in some circumstances of life. So come on, let’s get started.

  1. im

Im is a collection of Google Easter Eggs. These are just fun things you can use to entertain or delight your friends. For example, everyone knows the dinosaur that you can play with when you don’t have the Internet. And here, you can play a 3D version of it. Or you can use gravity to destroy the Google search bar. How long ago was the last time you played Pac-Man or a snake? There are a lot of fun things. All in all, enjoy.

  1. Google Breathing Exercise

If you type “breathing exercise” into Google, a one-minute breathing exercise comes up. Sometimes when you need to calm down or focus, a breathing exercise can help. When you click on “Execute,” the circle will begin to pulse, and you need to breathe in and out along with those movements, and it’s a great way to calm down. There is a mobile version.

  1. Google Sky Tricks

Another fun trick: Type “Google sky” in the search bar, then click on “I’m feeling lucky. The cosmic sky will open up in front of you. You can do this with kids, too; it’s quite educational. If you click on the solar system below, you can see different types of planets. If you go to constellations, you can find constellations. And the moon is drawn just incredible.

  1. Tricks with the timer

It’s not uncommon to need to time certain tasks. That’s when you’re cooking a meal or when you want to see how long you can stand on one foot while you’re exercising. It may also come in handy when you want to explain to your child how long the 5 minutes are before dinner. That’s where Google’s Tricks with the timer and stopwatch come in handy.

  1. Google Converter

If you need to convert any weight, height, money, and more, Google Converter comes in handy.

  1. Local and global time

If you want to know the local time, type “local time” into your search engine. Google will tell you the time, date, time zone, and location. You can also find out the global time. To do this, enter the “local time [country name],” and Google will answer the question.

  1. Google Calculator

Of course, your phone and computer usually have a built-in calculator. But Google also gives you the ability to calculate anything. Just type “calculator” into Google.

  1. Metronome

Musicians may need to calculate BPM (beats per minute). Google has taken care of that, too. Type “Metronome” in the search box and click on the playback option. Increase and decrease the beat rate to find out your BPM (beats per minute).

  1. Google Color Picker

Website builders or designers may find the google “color picker” useful. You can use HEX code and many other parameters. Type “color picker” into Google and select a color.

  1. Animal Sounds

Do you want to include animal sounds for your child? Type “animal sounds” in the search box and select an animal to hear the sound.

  1. Image Search

One of the really useful features of Google search is image search. To do this, click on the “Search by Image” link and upload an image from your computer. You will see information about the image and different places where it is found on the Internet. We recently did a review of other image search engines. Take a look and choose among more than 40 options.

  1. Google Down Status

Sometimes you need to know if it’s just you cannot download Google or the site is down. Just enter “Google Down” into your search engine, and it will answer your question.

  1. Specific Searches

You can ask Google to search for a specific site. To do this, type: “site: [Enter site name],” and it will show you everything related to that site.

This is rather handy if you know the place (website) to search and saves you from browsing through unwanted results. For example: “site:etsy.com quiet book” will return results for the search query “quiet book,” but the results will only come from the specified site (etsy.com) and not from other sites.

  1. Voice Search

Google supports voice search. In the Google Chrome browser or in the Google app on Android or iOS, you can click the “Microphone” button and directly tell Google what you’re looking for, and then it will show you the results after receiving your input.

  1. Perform Private Searches

For all its breadth of features, Google doesn’t seem like the right choice for privacy lovers because of tracking issues. You can use Startpage to perform Google searches without worrying about surveillance or other privacy concerns. The program shows you Google searches but does not track your IP address, location information, etc. There are also many alternative Google search engines that can help you do private searches.

  1. Customizing your Search Options

Google allows you to customize your search options. You can change the search options on the search settings page. With SafeSearch, you can block explicit results, and you can even have Google say the answers to your voice queries. What’s more, you can customize instant predictions, the number of results displayed on the page, and language and location to get more customized results and recommendations.

  1. Search for a Specific Phrase

If you want to search for a specific phrase, you can use ” ” (double quotes). In this case, Google displays only results that contain the specified phrase (between the double quotes) in the same word order as the specified phrase. For example, if you search for “President’s favorite movie,” Google will only search for that phrase. You won’t get any related search results. This is handy if you want hyper-specific search results and don’t want related search results to clutter up your search.

  1. Using Google Search Operators to Create Efficient Queries

Examples of operators include “OR”, “And”, “*”, “-” and others. Below we describe the scenarios for using these search operators.

You can use the OR operator to specify the words “either-or” in a search query. Google will return results containing any of those words. Let’s take “buy a comfortable office chair OR chair” as an example, and Google will return results for both.

AND is used to list the words that must occur as a result of the search. For example, “restaurant cheap AND delicious” will display results containing the words “cheap” and “delicious.”

* (asterisk) is used to find unknown words. Google will find all results that have any word or group of words in place of the asterisk in the search query. For example: “song * love a woman” will return to various songs containing such words.

– (minus) is used to disallow words in a search query. In this case, Google lists the results in which these words are absent. For example: “buy -apple laptop” will display results that do not contain ‘apple’ laptops.

  1. Search Between Two Numbers

… (two periods) provides a search between two numbers in Google. This is handy when searching for something in a range, such as prices of items in your budget range, prime numbers in a range, etc. For example: “buy a Canon camcorder 10000…50000 francs” will bring up pages with Canon cameras in a price range of 10000 to 50000 francs.

  1. Find Specific Files

Operator filetype: provides a search for specific files on the Internet, not content or websites. This is very handy if you are looking for presentations, PDF files, drawings, or other files whose extension is known. Here’s an example: “filetype: ppt sensory integration” will search for presentations on the specified topic “Sensory integration”.

In Mozilla Firefox, you can right-click on the file format and click on “View source of selection .”Google will show you a link to that file. Now you can download it or do whatever you need to do.

  1. Find Related Pages

Sometimes you need to find out who has linked to your blog or article online. And a reliable way to find out all the links is to use this simple search technique. Just type “link: URL”. Use the URL you need to check. Google will bring up all the web pages that have linked to that particular link.

  1. Search Terms in Page Titles

intitle: and allintitle: are designed to search for terms in page titles. Google’s function is not limited to searching only by content but can also search by page titles. Usually, titles describe the meaning of the content, and searching by title allows you to find results where the content is more closely related to what you’re looking for. For example: “intitle: bulgaria” shows only results with the word “Bulgaria” in the titles; and “allintitle:bulgaria covid restrictions” shows only results with the words “Bulgaria,” “covid,” and “restrictions” in the titles.

  1. Support for Searching Terms in Page URLs

inurl: and allinurl: help you search for terms in the URLs of web pages. Google searches for terms in the URL along with keywords in the content to get more accurate results. You can also use the same technique to filter search results and get the most useful results quickly. So, for example: “inurl: google” displays only results with “Google” in the URL, and “allinurl: google ios app” displays only results with “Google,” “Android” and ‘App’ in the URL.

  1. Search for Similar Sites

related: allows you to find out which sites are similar to a given site. It is desirable to know similar sites if you are doing research on a product or site. For example: “related:spotify” lists some of the competing sites for Spotify.

  1. Perform a Recent Search

Google search tools allow you to set a custom time range for search results. With this feature, you can set a minimum duration of one hour. So what if you want to see search results for the last 20 minutes? Introducing another Google trick inside the trick.

Using this trick, you can set a custom time in the address bar of your browser that is not available in the search tools. Once the results page loads, edit the address and add “&tbs=qdr:XN” to the address bar and press Enter; where ‘X’ can be y (years), m (months), d (days), h (hours), n (minutes) or s (seconds) and ‘N’ is a number. For example, adding “&tbs=qdr:n20” to the address will show results for the last 20 minutes.

  1. Check your Spelling

Even Google can check your spelling for you. If you’re not sure how to spell a word, just type it into the Google search box, and Google will tell you the correct spelling along with other relevant information.

  1. Learn Definitions, Synonyms, Antonyms, and Word Pronunciations

define: provides an opportunity to learn definitions, synonyms, and antonyms, as well as to hear the pronunciation of words. To listen to the pronunciation, you can click on the small speaker icon next to the word. For example: “define: obligated” gives you the definition, synonyms, and pronunciation, and “define: obligated antonyms” gives you a list of antonyms as well as other information.

  1. Find Word Origins

Etymology: provides a search for the origin of words. This is very handy if you are learning new words or researching words and their origins. Here’s an example: “etymology: man” allows you to find the origin of the word “man”.

  1. Get Real-Time Weather

Weather helps you get real-time weather information for all corners of the world. Example: “weather in Copenhagen”.

  1. Find Movie Times at Nearby Theaters

Yes, Google can do that too. Type the name of the movie, the name of the city, or the zip code, and Google will show you a list of movies playing near that location. You can select show times to see available tickets and a link to the website where you can buy tickets.

  1. Learn the Sunrise and Sunset Times

“Sunrise and sunset” will show you the sunrise and sunset times for today.  For example: “sunrise & sunset New York” shows the sunrise and sunset times for New York City, and “sunset New York” only tells you the sunset time for New York City.

  1. Compare Stock Quotes

“Stock” gives you the ability to view the latest stock quotes in real-time. You can also simply write the name of the stock to find out its price, for example, “GOOG” to find out the price of Google stock. For example: “stock GOOG” or “GOOG” shows the current market price of Google stock. If you use the name of the company rather than the name of its stock, you will have to use the “stock” variable. But note that stock prices are current in most cases but should not be used as a substitute for market rates.

  1. Tracking Postal Items

Google can help you track your packages. Enter the tracking number directly in the search bar. Currently, this feature is only supported for UPS, FedEx, and USPS shipments; the parcel’s status information is displayed as a snippet of text. For example, a search query containing the tracking number “1Z485959” will show you the status of the shipment.

  1. Search for Flights

With Google, you can search for flights from one place to another using just a few characteristics. In doing so, you get a price chart, filtering options, booking links, and more. For example: “flights St. Petersburg to Paris” allows you to view flights for the flight from St. Petersburg to Paris.

  1. Knowledge Graph for Searching Movies

Google can present data in a variety of easy-to-understand forms, and the best method is its Knowledge Graph, which can offer information about many things, such as movies. For example: “Piter Pen cast” shows information about the cast of a “Peter Pan” movie; “Piter Pen budget” displays information about the budget; “Piter Pen characters” gives information about the characters and actors who played them; “Piter Pen director” gives the name of the movie director, etc.

  1. Find Tourist Attractions

Google’s service can list tourist sites for any part of the world if you enter the word “attractions” at the beginning of your search and then enter the name of the city or its zip code. For example: “attractions Paris” or “attractions in Paris” lists attractions in Paris, and “attractions 10001” lists tourist attractions in New York City.

  1. Gathering Information about Celebrities and Personalities

You can find a variety of public information about many celebrities and famous personalities on Google. Just one search is enough to learn something new about your favorite star. For example, “Emma Watson’s age” talks about the age of the actress from the famous Harry Potter movie.

Or you can learn about celebrities from themselves.

If you regularly search for information about famous people and the like, Google has made it easy for you. Now you can get answers to the most popular questions on Google from celebrities themselves. All you have to do is type a popular personality into your search, and the Answers to Top Questions panel will appear in the right-hand corner. Now click on the mini videos, and you can get all the answers straight from the mouths of the celebrities themselves. That said, this video panel is not available for all celebrities, as Google has only connected a few of them so far.

  1. Nutrition Information

Google is smart enough to display nutritional information when you search for foods. This information includes calories, vitamins, fats, etc. Try to find out more about your favorite foods by just typing their names and “nutrition facts” in the search box.

  1. Access to More Than 100 Years of Newspaper Archives

Google is opening up access to digitized news content over the past few years. The company is scanning and digitizing old print newspapers in an effort to make content easily accessible to Internet users. For example, using the following query “site:google.com/newspapers Berlin wall,” a user will find a digitized newspaper article on the Berlin Wall.

  1. Web Page Release Dates

It is important for researchers and students to check the publication date of a piece of information before citing it in a journal or research paper.  In comparison, most web pages include the publication date in the headline, which is reflected in the search page; some sites do not. In this case, it becomes quite difficult to find the actual date the information was posted on the web page. Nevertheless, there is one clever trick to finding out this date.

Open the web page first, then press “Ctrl+U” to open the source code of the page. Alternatively, right-click on any page and choose open page source. Then here, press “Ctrl+F” and search for the word “date,” and go through all the matches. Somewhere you will find any of these parameters: “date”, “dateModified”, “dateUpdated”, “updated”, “updatedAt”, “createdAt”. These variables will contain information about the date the web page was published.

  1. Look for Authentic PNG Images

There are times when you’ve downloaded a transparent PNG image from the Internet, but you’ve been fooled by the lack of background pixels in the image. To download a genuine PNG image from the Internet, Google Search has a wonderful tool that sifts out all non-PNG images. Just search for an image such as “smartphone png” and then click on the “Images” tab. Click “Tools” and then select “Colors”. Now set it to “Transparent”, and you’ll get real PNGs in your search results. That’s great, isn’t it?

  1. Searching for Your Phone

Android device users can find their mobile device on the search page. Just type “find my phone” into the search, provided you are logged into your Google account, and it will immediately locate your device. You can also call your device, lock it, sign out of your Google account, and if you think your device has been stolen, erase all your data. You can do all this directly from the Google search page.

  1. Offline Web Browsing

Cache: Used to view websites that have been down for some time due to server issues. Google’s cache stores copies of web pages crawled by its crawler, so you can view them even if the server is down because the cached pages are downloaded from Google. For example: “cache:www.microsoft.com” allows you to browse www.microsoft.com even if they have something wrong and the site doesn’t load.

  1. Translate Text

With the translate trigger command, you can easily translate text through Google Translate. Although there is a whole separate Google Translate application, sometimes it is easier to ask Google to translate directly from the search box. For example: “translate thank you English Russian” or “translate thank you English to Russian” translates “thank you” into “спасибо”.

  1. Collections

Google offers a new feature called Collections, with which you can save your favorite web pages, images, and places from the Internet in one place. This feature is currently available on Android devices, especially if you use the Google search widget. The “Save” button is located at the top of web pages. When you click on it, the URL is saved in Collections, which can be found in the Google mobile app. What’s more, you can also access Collections on your desktop at google.com/save. In addition, you can also directly save images to Collections and to your desktop. To do this, just click on the “Save” button, and you’re done.

  1. Google Alerts

To become a pro at Google search, you need to learn how to create custom alerts tailored to your preferences. For example, if you’re waiting for the next season of your favorite TV show, you don’t have to search for it every time to get new information. Google provides a handy tool that delivers the latest articles and information on your topic of choice to your Gmail inbox. All you have to do is enter a keyword, and Google will notify you daily of all the latest happenings. It’s very interesting, isn’t it?

How to set up Google Alerts

  • Go to the Google Alerts page in your browser (mobile or desktop) and enter the subject of your choice.
  • Go to all the options and configure the alert filter. After that, click “Create Alert”, and you’re all ready to receive alerts.

You can also set up a Google alert for delivery at a specific time. To do this, click the gear icon and select a delivery time. In case you have multiple alerts, you can choose to combine all alerts into one digest email. To do this, simply check the Digest option and click Save.

When you’re done, you can delete or customize alerts by clicking on the appropriate buttons next to the alert subject.

  1. Meet Old Google Doodles

Google has been known to use “doodles” in place of its Google emblem on significant dates throughout the year. Whether it’s the anniversary of a famous scientist’s birthday or Earth Day, Google doodles are always very pretty, and sometimes they’re interactive and include built-in games. If you haven’t had a chance to see any Google doodles in the past, there is no need to worry. Go to the Google Doodles page, and you’ll see all the doodles that have appeared on the Google homepage in the past.

  1. See What Other People Are Searching For

Google Trends shows what other people in your country or around the world are searching for. It’s a great tool for journalists and bloggers to get new insights as well as keep track of search trends. In addition, you can filter trends by selecting a category or clicking on a trend for more information about it, such as relevant articles, interest over time, interest by region, trending requests, etc.

  1. Google Search Social Media

One of the most used platforms on the Internet is social networking. The number of social media users reached almost three billion. Do you know that you can search for specific social media accounts on Google?

By using the “@” symbol followed by the Twitter account address, you can get all the relevant outcomes for that particular user. And you can also enter a keyword after the account to find specific posts. This will turn up web pages as well as tweets related to the account and topic.

  1. Hashtags on Google

Mentions and profiles aren’t all the things you can find in a search engine regarding social media. One of Google’s search tricks involves searching for specific hashtags.

In doing so, you can get results not only by hashtag but also by the popularity of that word or phrase on social media.

For example, “#shopping.” If you set this term in Google and change the sorting date to the last 24 hours, you will get the most recent social media posts related to fitness.

If you change the type of results to “Verbatim,” the search will also be fine-tuned to show only the exact usage of that hashtag.

Twitter is not the only social media platform that uses hashtags. They are also present on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, and a number of others. However, they are not as common as they are on Twitter, so you may need to do some digging to find the term on other social sites.

  1. Search by FTP

You probably know that Google indexes FTP too, but did you know that you can find results from FTP using the extended inurl:ftp -inurl:(http|https)?

This search will find all URLs containing FTP, will disallow HTTP and HTTPS, and you can see directories of various sites, including NASA.

You can also use the keyword – Keyword inurl:ftp -inurl:(http|https) to find suitable FTP.

  1. Check Your Internet Speed

You can check your internet speed directly on Google by typing “Internet Speed Test.”

Here you can check your upload and download speeds. It will also display the latency and show whether your connection is slow or fast. Whether or not you can, for example, watch streaming HD video on multiple devices.

  1. Flip a Coin

What do you do when you have to make a difficult decision and choose between two options? Flipping a coin is one way to help you, but what if you don’t have one handy? You always have your phone with you. So Google will come to the rescue. You type in “flip a coin” and click on “my luck,” and Google will tell you whether it’s heads or tails!

  1. Rolling a Dice

In board games or while studying probability in math, many people use dice, but what do you do if you forget to get them or lose them? Not everyone knows, but Google gives you the option to use dice. Just type “roll the dice” into the search box, and Google will give you a random dice roll result.

  1. Advanced Video Search

Like most other Google services has an advanced video search option. However, finding it a bit difficult to find, as the link to it only appears at the bottom of the results page. And also, this is available directly from the following link.

  1. Music Search

To get a list of a band or musician’s albums, just like with actors and movies, search by band or artist name and albums.

A side-by-side scrolling list of albums appears at the top of the list. And their covers serve as links to a new search of the album itself – while keeping the original list of the band’s albums above the search results.

  1. Google Knows the Score of Games

Want to know what the score was in your favorite team’s last game or what time the next game is scheduled? All you have to do is enter the team name to find out. If the match is going on right now, you will be given the latest stats. If you are interested to see the schedule of your team’s future games, just click on the link “+ Show other games”.

  1. Google Knows if an Earthquake is Happening Somewhere

Have you heard about a recent earthquake somewhere in the world and want to know more? Or, on the other hand, feel the tremors yourself? Search for an earthquake and a location, and you’ll get the information you need. To get information on recent earthquakes in general, don’t enter a location.

  1. Publicly Available Data

Google has access to a huge amount of public data – so much of it that we can’t cover it all. But to give you an example, enter the population and the region. You’ll see the current population figure, as well as the date, the source of that figure, and a graph of population change over time.

Additionally, if you click on the chart, you will be taken to another page with even more detailed data and many options for customizing the chart.

  1. Google Search for Diseases and Medicines

Need to research the composition of medications? When you type a drug name into a search engine, Google will give you the brand and chemical name, a short description, and links to “Side Effects,” “How to Take It Properly,” “Precautions,” and “Missed Dose. You can also search by disease and symptom, for which Google will provide detailed information and/or additional options.

  1. Google Can Time You

Need a simple countdown timer? Tell Google to set the timer, then enter the desired time. At the beginning of your search results, you’ll see a countdown timer with a blue line filling in as the time expires. There will also be links to stop and restart and a speaker icon to mute the buzzer that will sound when the time expires. As soon as the time expires, the stop link will be called OK and must be clicked to silence the alarm.

  1. Google Knows Where to Start

Google has a little-known special website called “What Do You Like?”. Go there, and you will be prompted to answer the question, “What do you like?” This will present you with a long page of results and links to further results instead of getting specific results for a particular type of Google search.

The results vary considerably (for example, a search by author’s name gives you the opportunity to discover patents about that author). If you don’t know where to start exploring a somewhat broad topic, this google service can be a great way to get you thinking about the type of resources you are looking for.

Google search techniques that require you to log in to Google

Setting reminders

You can ask Google to set reminders for you right on your computer, and Google Now itself will remind you of the task at a specified date and time. This feature works only if you are a Google Now user.

For example: “Remind me of a meeting at the center tomorrow at 4 p.m.” will set a reminder for the settings you set, and you’ll get a reminder alert on your Android or iOS device.

Check flight status information

We mentioned above that you could check airfares with a Google search, but that’s not all. You can even find out booking details just by doing a Google search. For example, if you type “my flight status” into Google, you’ll get information about your reservation, as well as departure gate, time of departure, delay (if any), and more. Remember, from now on, you don’t have to bother checking your flight status painstakingly. Simply do a Google search using this trick, and all the information will be at your fingertips.

 

Other Google Search Tricks

  • Opening www.google.com/ncr will take you to .com (NCR – no regional redirect).
  • books.google.com is a library with all kinds of books.
  • Match products using words like pizza and burger and get all the information such as calories, fat, etc.
  • Find news in a specific location by searching Google News as “Star wars location:Canada”.
  • Convert numbers to words and easily copy and paste them anywhere.
  • You can also convert currency, e.g., “euro 10 to Dollar”.

Maximize your Google search performance with these tips and tricks

There are many tips and tricks you can use to get optimal search results. Note that you don’t need to memorize them all.
