How to use google ... google extra commands to google search engine

Additional commands to the Google search engine allow you to achieve even better results. With their help, you will be able to limit the search area, also indicate to the search engine that it is not necessary to browse all the pages.

Operator "Plus" (+): For a situation when it is necessary to forcibly include in the text any obligatory word.

To do this, use the operator "+" before the obligatory word. Suppose if we have a Terminator 2 request, as a result of the request we will have information about the movie Terminator, Terminator 2, Terminator 3. In order to throw only information about the movie Terminator 2, we put a plus sign in front of two: quite a bit about “Home Alone” I ". If we have a query like Terminator +2.

For example: Journal + Murzilka
Equation + Bernoulli

Site Operator: This operator limits the search to a specific domain or site.

In other words, if you make a request: marketing intelligence site: www. +++++. Ru, the results will be obtained from pages containing the words “marketing” and “intelligence” specifically on the website “+++++”, but not in other parts of the web.

For example: Music site: www. +++++. Su
Books site: ru

Operator link: This operator allows you to see all the pages that refer to the page on which the request was made.

So, the request link: www. +++++. Com will display pages with links to +++++. Com.

For example: link: www. +++++. Com
Friends link: www. +++++. Ru

Spectrum operator (..): For those who have to work with numbers, Google has given the opportunity to search for spectra between numbers.

In order to find all the pages containing numbers in a certain “from-to” spectrum, it is necessary to put two points between these last values ​​(..), in other words, the spectrum operator.

For example: Buy a book of $ 100 .. $ 150
Population of 1913..1935

Elimination of keywords from the query.

Logical "NOT" (-): To exclude any words, the exclusion operators "minus" (-) are used.

In other words, the logical "NOT." Useful in variants where direct search results are very littered.

For example: Aquarium -group - we look for everything about an aquarium excluding the group "Aquarium"

Finding a clear phrase (""): Useful for finding a specific text (an entire article on a quote).

To do this, you must enclose the query in quotes (double quotes). For example: "And the prison is narrow, and freedom is one And we constantly hope for it" - we search for the ballad of Vysotsky on one line.

Note: Google allows you to enter in the query string less than 32 words.

Truncation of the word (*): From time to time it is required to search for information about the word combination in which one or several words are unknown.

For these purposes, instead of unknown words, the operator "*" is used. Those. "*" - any word or group of words.

For example: Master and * Leonardo * Vinci

Cache statement: A search engine saves a version of text that is indexed by the search spider in a special storage in a format called a cache.

The cached version of the page can be retrieved if the unique page is unattainable (for example, the server on which it is stored does not work). The cached page is shown in the form in which it is stored in the database of the search engine and is accompanied by an inscription at the top of the page indicating that it is a page from the cache. It also contains information about the time of creation of the cached version. On the page from the cache, the query keywords are highlighted, with each word highlighted in its own color for the convenience of the user. You can create a request that will immediately issue a cached version of a page with a specific address: cache: page_address, where instead of page_address is the address of the page stored in the cache. If you need to find in the cached page what or information, it is necessary after the address of the page separated by a space to write a request for this information.

For example: cache: www. +++++. Com
cache: www. +++++. ru tournaments !!!
It must be borne in mind that the space between ":" and the address of the page should not be required!

Operator filetype: As is well known, Google registers not only html pages.

If, for example, it was useful to find some information in a file type other than html, you can use the filetype operator, which allows you to search for information in a specific file type (html, pdf, doc, rtf ...).

For example: html specification
filetype: pdf
Writing filetype: rtf

Operator info: Operator info allows you to see the information that Google is famous about this page.

For example: info: www. +++++. En
info: www. +++++. com

Operator allintitle: If you start the request with the operator allintitle, which translates as "all in the heading", Google will display texts in which all the words of the request are contained in the headings (inside the TITLE tag in HTML).

For example: allintitle: free software
allintitle: Download music albums

The intitle operator: Indicates pages in which only the word that stands specifically after the intitle operator is contained in the heading, and all other words of the query can be anywhere in the text.

If you put an intitle operator before each word of the query, it will be equivalent to using the allintitle operator.

For example: intitle programs: Download
intitle: donated
intitle: download software

Allinurl operator: If the query starts with the allinurl operator, then the search is limited to those documents in which all the words of the query are contained only in the page address, in other words in the url.

allinurl: books fantasy

Operator inurl: The word that is placed specifically in conjunction with the operator inurl will be found only in the address of the web page, and other words in any place of the page.

For example: inurl: books download
inurl: games crack

Operator related: This operator describes pages that are "similar" to some specific page.

So, the query related: will display pages with the same theme as Google.

For example: related: www. +++++. Com
related: www. +++++. en

Operator define: This operator plays the role of a kind of explanatory dictionary that allows you to quickly get a definition of the word that was entered after the operator.

For example: define: Kangaroo
define: Motherboard

Search operator synonyms (~): If you want to find texts that contain not only your keywords, but also their synonyms, you can use the operator "~" before the word to which you want to find synonyms.
