The position that "Google Search" has established as a search portal of choice for many people is now solid. However, there is no doubt that the hits and misses of the search results are larger than before. Recent search results pages aren't just reliable and accurate answers, they're just ads, recommended search results, and SEO (search engine optimization) websites. [View images] Google search "4 techniques" to remember To get proper results in Google search, it is not enough to simply enter a few keywords and hope for the best search results. The tips below should help you get the search results you want faster and easier.
1. Narrow down the search target
One of the most effective ways to narrow down your search is to enclose the search term in single-byte quotation marks (""). From song lyrics to movie titles, you can quote keywords to tell Google exactly what you're looking for, so you can exclude a lot of unwanted results from your results page. This is especially useful when the combination of keywords you are searching for is not very common. Also, by adding a half-width minus sign (-) immediately before the keyword, the result containing the word can be excluded. This is a really useful way to get rid of certain related keywords or news articles. Conversely, by adding a half-width plus sign (+) immediately before, keywords can always be included. Generally, the more keywords you use for your search, the better. You might think that entering one or two keywords will help Google understand what you're looking for, but it's amazing how much more clarified intent can improve your results. This refinement is really useful when you have a lot of results that aren't really relevant to what you want to find.
2. Search within a specific site
Google search often wants you to search the entire Internet for results, but in some cases it may not. If you want to look up a particular site, or if you have a site that you trust more than any other site, type "site:" after the keyword you're looking for, then enter the main URL for that site. This will only show the results for that particular domain. This feature is useful, for example, if you want to find results on Wikipedia. A normal search is likely to show sponsored sites, optimized sites, and prejudiced sites before Wikipedia. In such a case, if you add "site: wikipedia.org" to the search window, you can get the result narrowed down to Wikipedia only. What's more, you can continue to take advantage of Google's superior capabilities when it comes to search and page rank. This method can be used for any website. For example, it is useful when you want to target a specific news site you trust, or when you want to know the result from the official site.The next page is: 3. Use "Search Options"
