Google has done a terrific job in search industry by introducing their search engine years ago.

Today, It is no doubt the most powerful search engine.

We can simply search Google by writing the words we want to know about and that's it. We eventually find something useful and we smile back at that very dumb screen with utter satisfaction and a feeling of Great we got what we needed.

Have you ever noticed the how much amount of our precious time you waste by doing this?

We need to be a little more sophisticated while search through Google.One great soltuion is using operators to get quality result not quantity results.

Google Operators:

Operators are used to enhance results and to maximize the search value. These are our tools as well as deadly hackers’ weapons which they use they know for what other purposes.

+, -, ~ , ., *, “”, |, OR

Advanced Operators:

allintext:, allintitle:, allinurl:, bphonebook:, cache:, define:, filetype:, info:, intext:, intitle:, inurl:, link:, phonebook:, related:, rphonebook:, site:, numrange:, daterange

Daterange: -

Also a site can be hacked with the intellectual use of these operators. But I suggest you to go in deep only for MERE CUROSITY and know more Ethical Methods of using these operators.

Thanks for Google for such a vast resource of operators provided for efficient search.
