6 Hot Tips to Search Google Like an Expert

I use Google most of the times to search and almost everyone uses Google many times a day. If your present use of Google is limited to typing few words and changing the search terms repeatedly until you find what you are looking for, then I’m here to tell you the 6 hot tips to search Google like an expert. Google-search-tips  By using the following precious and lesser known tips you can get the result of your queries at once. So you don’t need to search for a specific thing again and again and pull your hair in frustration any more.

The following 6 hot tips will make you search like an expert. By expert, I mean that you will get the search result exactly matching your queries at once. I have provided examples with each tip so that it is easier for you to understand and implement.

6 Hot Google Search Tips

1) Site Specific Search

If you want to search a particular website/page/blog directly from Google itself without going to the site than we can use “” query.
Example :

2) Precise Phrase

If you are looking for something like make money online, then instead of just typing the make money online you should type it in quotes.
Example : “make money online”

3) Similar Words

If you want to search for a term and want to include results with its synonyms than you need to use “~” in front of the word.
Example : "reviews of smartphones" ~ satisfying

4) Exclude Words

If you want to search for a thing and don’t want search results with particular words to appear than you need to use “ – “ sign before the term.
Example : "make money with google" –investment

5) Word Definitions

If you want to know a meaning of a word than you can use “define:” query.
Example : define:blogging

6) Precise Document Type

If you want to search for documents of particular file type than you can use “filetype:” query.
Example : “traffic guide” filetype:ppt

I hope by using the above 6 hot tips you can get your results much faster. If you know any such unique commands that I have missed than you can share it with us through comments.
