Google search tips 1. Capitalization and quotation marks: Google searches are NOT case sensitive. Searches for najib razak, Najib Razak , and naJIb rAZak will all return the same results.

If you want to include either this or that in result list, use the OR operator ( must be upper-case ): Example: "siti nurhaliza" OR "datuk khalid” site:my (Leave out the OR, Google returns pages that include both terms)
