The best search results require some thought

Whenever we need to know anything these days, the majority of us immediately go to Google for the answer. But there’s more to getting the best result than simply typing your query directly into the search box. Here are a few tips for getting better results from Google*.

You may have been searching incorrectly

If you want to search a specific site, begin your search with ‘site’. For example, if you want to find an alien story on The Courier-Mail website, type ‘site:couriermail.com.au alien’.

To find the dictionary definition of a word, type ‘define’ in front of your search.

Little words are a no-no

Common words like ‘a’ and ‘and’ are known as ‘stop words’ and Google ignores them.

However, if they are in a specific phrase or quote they need to be included. For example, if you were looking for a film quote such as “we’re gonna need a bigger boat”, type it in full in quotation marks for the best results.

Google has a sense of humour

The ‘did you mean’ tag can either be a friend or an enemy, but it can also be funny. Type in ‘anagram’ to find a gem.

You can still play Pacman

In May 2010, the Google Doodle was an interactive Pacman game that cost the nation 4.82 million person hours in time-wasting. You can still idle away a few hours by searching ‘Play Pacman’ into the search.

You can make Google flip out

Type ‘do a barrel roll’ into the search box and watch as your browser does acrobatics. Another good command is ‘askew’. Try it.

You can make your own Google logo

You can make your Google page your own with Goglogo.

It’s a calculator

For a quick answer to a maths equation, just type it into the search engine. It’s quicker than Stephen Hawking.
