4 search tips for better Googling

Want to get better results from your Google searches? Try these four tips from Macgasm editor Joshua Schnell:

  1. Exclude a word. Sometimes searches bring up a lot of information that you don’t want. For example, if you search for “Apple” looking for information on the computer company, you’ll also get a lot of results about the fruit. So you can use the minus sign for a better search, like this: “Apple - fruit.”
  2. Search a specific site. If you’ve narrowed your search to a specific website, you can use Google just to search within that site, like this: “Apple site: computerworld.com.”
  3. Include synonyms. Putting a tilde in front of a search term (like this: “~problems”) will bring up results with similar terms.
  4. Seek variations on what you know. If you can’t remember part of what you’re looking for, use an asterisk (*) in place of the words you can’t remember, like this: “a house * cannot stand.”
