- Specify a site to search with the site: modifier.
For Example: operators site:www.eshikshak.co.in
- The above tip works with directory sites like www.dmoz.org and dynamically generated sites.
- Access Google Directory – a database of handpicked and rated sites – at directory.google.com
- The Boolean operators intitle and inurl work in Google directory, as does OR.
- Use the site: modifier when searching Google Images, at images.google.com.
For example: dvd recorder site:www.amazon.co.uk
- Similar, using "site:.com" will only return results from .com domains.
- Google News (news.google.com) has its own Boolean parameters.
For example "intext" pulls terms from the body of a story.
- If you use the operator "source" in Google News, you can pick specific archives.
For example: heather mills source:daily_mail
- Using the "location:" filter enables you to return news from a chosen country.
For example: location:uk.
- Similarly, Google Blogsearch (blogsearch.google.com) has its own syntax. You can search for a blog title.
For example: eshikshak inblogtitle:googlethestudyofsearchology.blogspot.com
- The general search engine can get very specific indeed.
For example: movie:surat
to look for movie reviews.
- The modifier film: works just as well!
- Enter showtimes and Google will prompt you for your postcode. Enter it and it'll tell you when and where local films are showing.
- For a dedicated film search page, go to www.google.co.in/movies
- If you ticked "Remember this Location" when you searched for show times, the next time you can enter the name of a current film instead.
