Google Seach Tricks

I have seen people who spend hours of hours in searching for a thing, but even then, they don’t find. The same information can be found within a few minutes provided they know all the Google Search tricks.

Google came into existence in 1998, and now you just see a logo, two buttons and a search box – a simple interface. Do you know it took about 19 years to make such an amazing search engine?

Perhaps, due to the reason, Google is worth more than 500 billion dollars having more than 200 companies.

Sadly, 99% of users don’t know how to search for a specific piece of information on Google effectively.

I’m sure after reading this article, you’ll be a Google Guru.

The game doesn’t end here. You can search for anything that has an extension as Powerpoint has pptx. Similarly, if you’re looking for a Word file, then you can use filetype:doc. If you’re searching for a torrent file, you can use filetype:torrent.
