    View slide
  • Some Points
    • Every word matters. All the words that you type in the search box are used by Google.
    • The search is case-insensitive i.e. Google does not find any difference between CAPITAL and capital.
    • Generally, punctuations or special characters like ~!@#$(){}[] are ignored.

  • Some Tips
    • Most searches do not require advanced options. Just type-in what you want.
    • Use the words that you think are most likely to appear on the page.
    • Use descriptive words. The accuracy of results depends on the uniqueness of the description.
    • Use as fewer words as possible. A combination of many words may limit your search results.
  • DEMO

  • DEMO
    • Fill in the blanks
  • Search exactly “as-is”
    • Google sometimes substitutes a keyword in the query to maximize the accuracy of the search-results.
