Google week: 101 tips, tricks and hacks - The ultimate collection of Google tips and tricks

1. The best way to begin searching harder with Google is by clicking the Advanced Search link.

2. This lets you search for exact phrases, "all these words", or one of the specified keywords by entering search terms into the appropriate box.

3. You can also define how many results you want on the page, what language and what file type you're looking for, all with menus.

4. Advanced Search lets you type in a Top Level Domain (like in the "Search within site of domain" box to restrict results.

5. And you can click the "Date, usage rights, numeric range and more" link to access more advanced features.

6. Save time – most of these advanced features are also available in Google's front page search box, as command line parameters.

7. Google's main search invisibly combines search terms with the Boolean construct "AND". When you enter smoke fire – it looks for smoke AND fire.

8. To make Google search for smoke or fire, just type smoke OR fire

9. Instead of OR you can type the | symbol, like this: smoke | fire

10. Boolean connectors like AND and OR are case sensitive. They must be upper case.

11. Search for a specific term, then one keyword OR another by grouping them with parentheses, like this: water (smoke OR fire)

12. To look for phrases, put them in quotes: "there's no smoke without fire"

13. Synonym search looks for words that mean similar things. Use the tilde symbol before your keyword, like this: ~eggplant

14. Exclude specific key words with the minus operator. new pram -ebay excludes all results from eBay.

15. Common words, like I, and, then and if are ignored by Google. These are called "stop words".

16. The plus operator makes sure stop words are included. Like: fish +and chips

17. If a stop word is included in a phrase between quote marks as a phrase, the word is searched for.

18. You can also ask Google to fill in a blank. Try: Christopher Columbus discovered *

19. Search for a numerical range using the numrange operator. For example, search for Sony TV between £300 and £500 with the string Sony TV £300..£500

20. Google recognises 13 main file types through advanced search, including all Microsoft Office Document types, Lotus, PostScript, Shockwave Flash and plain text files.

21. Search for any filetype directly using the modifier filetype:[filetype extension]. For example: soccer filetype:pdf

22. Exclude entire file types, using the same Boolean syntax we used to exclude key words earlier: rugby -filetype:doc

23, In fact, you can combine any Boolean search operators, as long as your syntax is correct. An example: "sausage and mash" -onions filetype:doc

24. Google has some very powerful, hidden search parameters, too. For example "intitle" only searches page titles. Try intitle:herbs

25. If you're looking for files rather than pages – give index of as the intitle: parameter. It helps you find web and FTP directories.

26. The modifier inurl only searches the web address of a page: give inurl:spices a go.

27. Find live webcams by searching for: inurl:view/view.shtml

28. The modifier inanchor is very specific, only finding results in text used in page links.

29. Want to know how many links there are to a site? Try link:sitename – for example

30. Similarly, you can find pages that Google thinks are related in content, using the related: modifier. Use it like this:

31. The modifier info:site_name returns information about the specified page.

32. Alternatively, do a normal search then click the "Similar Pages" link next to a result.

33. Specify a site to search with the site: modifier – like this: search tips

34. The above tip works with directory sites like and dynamically generated sites.

35. Access Google Directory – a database of handpicked and rated sites – at

36. The Boolean operators intitle and inurl work in Google directory, as does OR.

37. Use the site: modifier when searching Google Images, at For example: dvd recorder

38. Similar, using "" will only return results from .com domains.

39. Google News ( has its own Boolean parameters. For example "intext" pulls terms from the body of a story.

40. If you use the operator "source:" in Google News, you can pick specific archives. For example: heather mills source:daily_mail

41. Using the "location:" filter enables you to return news from a chosen country. location:uk for example.

42. Similarly, Google Blogsearch ( has its own syntax. You can search for a blog title, for example, using inblogtitle:<keyword>

43. The general search engine can get very specific indeed. Try movie:<name of film> to look for movie reviews.

44. The modifier film: works just as well!

45. Enter showtimes and Google will prompt you for your postcode. Enter it and it'll tell you when and where local films are showing.

46. For a dedicated film search page, go to

47. 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.

55. No calculator handy? Use Google's built in features. Try typing 12*15 and hitting "Google Search".

56. Google's calculator converts measurements and understands natural language. Type in 14 stones in kilos, for example.

57. It does currency conversion too. Try 200 pounds in euros

58. If you know the currency code you can type 200 GBP in EUR instead for more reliable results.

59. And temperature! Just type: 98 f to c to convert Fahrenheit to Centigrade.

60. Want to know how clever Google really is? Type 2476 in roman numerals, then hit "Google Search"...

How to add Yahoo Buzz Widget to every post of your blog.

As I have discussed in previous article Yahoo Buzz and buttons are very important for generating traffics to your site. And have free external links to your site. Here I will discuss how to add Yahoo Buzz! button to each post of blog.

Please visit link and get the code for the required button. I will explain it for the above button's code. For the other buttons you can perform similar steps.

The code for the above button is:

<script type="text/javascript"
In the above code replace ARTICLEURL by </data:post.url> hence your code will be:
<script type="text/javascript"
Additionally you can include story headline, story’s summary, story’s category, story’s media type, to automatically pull the URL associated as follows within <script> </script>:

To provide a story’s headline upon submission: yahooBuzzArticleHeadline = "Enter Story Headline Here"

To provide a story’s summary upon submission: yahooBuzzArticleSummary = "Enter Story Summary Here"

To provide a story’s category upon submission: yahooBuzzArticleCategory = "Enter Story Category Here"

where "Enter Story Category Here" must be one of the following: business, entertainment, health, images, lifestyle, politics, science, sports, travel, usnews, video, world-news

To provide a story’s media type upon submission: yahooBuzzArticleType = "Enter Media Type Here"

where "Enter Media Type Here" must be one of the following: text, image, video

Finally, to automatically pull the URL associated with the page where the button lives upon submission: yahooBuzzArticleId = window.location.href

Finally your code will be as follows:

<script type='text/javascript'>
yahooBuzzArticleHeadline = &quot;<data:post.title/>&quot;;
yahooBuzzArticleSummary = &quot;<data:post.title/>&quot;;
yahooBuzzArticleCategory = &quot;Sci/Tech&quot;;
