  • 3. Applying The Basic Search Techniques
    Use the plus sign (+) to force a search for an overly common word. 
    Use the minus sign (-) to exclude a term from a search. No space follows these signs. 
    To search for a phrase, supply the phrase surrounded by double quotes (""). 
    A period (.) serves as a single-character wildcard. 
    An asterisk (*) represents any word—not the completion of a word, as is traditionally used.

  • 4. Advanced Operators
    Google advanced operators help refine searches. Advanced operators use a syntax such as the following: 
    operator:search_term
    Notice that there’s no space between the operator, the colon, and the search term. 
    The site: operator instructs Google to restrict a search to a specific web site or domain. The web site to search must be supplied after the colon. 
    The filetype: operator instructs Google to search only within the text of a particular type of file. The file type to search must be supplied after the colon. Don’t include a period before the file extension.

    The cache: operator displays the version of a web page as it appeared when Google crawled the site. The URL of the site must be supplied after the colon. 
    The intitle: operator instructs Google to search for a term within the title of a document. 
    The inurl: operator instructs Google to search only within the URL (web address) of a document. The search term must follow the colon.

  • 17. Search For Free Anonymous Web Proxies 
    A free anonymous web proxy site allows any web browser to access other third-party websites by channelling the browser’s connection through the proxy.  The web proxy basically acts as a middleman between your web browser and the third-party website you are visiting.  
    Why should you do that?  There are two common reasons: 
    You’re connecting to a public network at a coffee shop or internet café and you want privacy while you browse the web.  You don’t want the admin to know every site you visit.

  • 18. You want to bypass a web content filter or perhaps a server-side ban on your IP address.  Content filtering is common practice on college campus networks.  This trick will usually bypass those restrictions.
    You can find subscription services and applications available such as TOR and paid VPN servers that do the same thing.  However, this trick is free and easy to access from anywhere via Google.  All you have to do is look through the search results returned by the queries below, find a proxy that works, and enter in the URL of the site you want to browse anonymously. 
    Examples: 
    inurl:”nph-proxy.cgi” “start using cgiproxy” 
    inurl:”nph-proxy.cgi” “Start browsing through this CGI-based proxy”
