MacMost Now 833: 18 Google Search Tricks

You can do much more with a Google search than just enter plain search terms. You can use modifiers like quotes, dashes and asterisks to search for more specific things. You can also search on a particular web site or for specific terms in a page title. There are also many bits of information that you can find without having to leave Google, such as definitions, weather, movie times, flight times and conversions.

    Really helpful, Gary - as your videos always are. Do you have a list somewhere of the search term tips you covered? Thanks.

      Not in list form, no. They will be in the transcript, however.

    For me, this was a "wow"! Thanks for all of these tips. I also tried this with the updated Google Search with voice on my iPhone. It worked really well. If you are used to speaking text with Mountain Lion or Dragon dictation, you need to say "colon", etc. and need to do it without hesitation as the voice function will think you stopped talking. Keep up the great work!
