Google Secrets

Well, we all know that Google is really a very powerful search engine on the web. But most of  the people don’t actually use it to the best of its advantages.

But google is really a powerful tool that can enhance your internet exploration. Let’s look at some of Google’s lesser-known options.
Syntax Search Tricks
Using a special syntax is a way to tell Google that you want to restrict your searches to certain elements or characteristics of Web pages. Google has a fairly complete list of its syntax elements at
Here are some advanced operators that can help narrow down your search results.
Intitle: at the beginning of a query word or phrase (intitle:”Three Blind Mice”) restricts your search results to just the titles of Web pages.
Intext: does the opposite of intitle:, searching only the body text, ignoring titles, links, and so forth. Intext: is perfect when what you’re searching for might commonly appear in URLs. If you’re looking for the term HTML, for example, and you don’t want to get results such as
,you can enter intext:html.
Swiss Army Google
  • Google has a number of services that can help you accomplish tasks you may never have thought to use Google for. For example, the new calculator feature
  • Suppose you want to contact someone and don’t have his phone number handy. Google can help you with that, too. Just enter a name, city, and state. (The city is optional, but you must enter a state.) If a phone number matches the listing, you’ll see it at the top of the search results along with a map link to the address. If you’d rather restrict your results, use rphonebook: for residential listings or bphonebook: for business listings. If you’d rather use a search form for business phone listings, try Yellow Search
Extended Googling
Google offers several services that give you a head start in focusing your search.
  • Google Groups indexes literally millions of messages from decades of discussion on Usenet. Google even helps you with your shopping via two tools.
  • Froogle which indexes products from online stores.
  • Google Catalogs which features products from more 6,000 paper catalogs in a searchable index. And this only scratches the surface.
  • You can get a complete list of Google’s tools and services at www.google.com/options/index.html
  • Google Alert (www.googlealert.com) monitors your search terms and e-mails you information about new additions to Google’s Web index. (Google Alert is not affiliated with Google; it uses Google’s Web services API to perform its searches.)
  • If you’re more interested in news stories than general Web content, check out the beta version of Google News Alerts (www.google.com/newsalerts).
Thanks to its many different search properties, Google goes far beyond a regular search engine. Give the tricks in this article a try. You’ll be amazed at how many different ways Google can improve your Internet searching...
