Google Search Tricks You Must Know

Site Search

If you want to search for anything within a specific site, all you need to do is type “site:[url]” after your search term. For instance, if you want to search for “Blogger Widget” on the GulmiResunga website, just google “Blogger Widget site:” and your results will be exclusively from pages on the GulmiResunga website.

Quote Search

Sometimes, Google search results are a huge bummer. You’re looking for something and they show you something else. Don’t lose hope, because Google has a very useful feature that very few people use—searching with quotations. That’s right—if you search anything inside quotes, Google only searches for the exact term that you’re looking for and gives you the results accordingly. Sometimes though, the exact phrase you are looking for might not exist, so try rephrasing your search term.


Let’s say you’re looking for a specific file. You know it’s a PDF. Google gives you the option of searching for those files only by adding “filetype:[extension]” after your search query. So if you want to search for PDFs about Nepal, then search for “Nepal filetype:pdf” (without the quotes of course). Remember, your results will not be webpages this time round; they will be direct links to the PDFs you are looking for. You can use other extensions such as .doc, .xls, .ppt etc.

Similar Terms

If you’re not sure of what you’re looking for, using the “~” symbol will help you search for similar terms. Just type “~[search term]” and let Google do the rest. So if you search for “~Everest”, your results will range from Mt. Everest to Mt. Rushmore, from trekking to the Himalayas.

Converter and Calculator

Google can be a very handy converter of units and currency. To convert physical units or currencies, simply type “____ [original unit] in [new unit]” So if you need to convert 5 km to miles, simply type “5 km in miles” and Google gives you the result in no time. You can use Google as a calculator too. Searching for “3+2(2*2)” will give you the answer as 11. For complex calculations, use “^” for exponents and sqrt(num) to find the square root of the number. For instance, “(sqrt(4))^3”  gives you the square root of four raised to the power three, which is eight.

Definition Please

Don’t know the meaning of a word? Google’s got you covered. Simply type “define: [word]” and Google gives you a list of definitions from various dictionaries.
