Advice How to use Google properly for your benefit.

If you use it right, Google is the most powerful tool in the world. But the truth is most people suck at it. Here are 8 Googling tips that you probably don't know

1. "Quotation markets" Put quotes around search terms to let you search exactly for that word. All results will have your terms in it. Example: "James Clear" Gives you all James Clear search results without just "James" or just "Clear".

2.- Dashes If you want to exclude a term from your search, include a hyphen before that word. Example: dolphins-football You just want dolphins the animal not dolphins the professional football team.

3.~ Tilde Use tilde when you want synonyms to appear in the result. Example: music ~classes Here you only get music classes, lessons, coaching, etc.

4.Site: Use this to search within a specific website only. Example: Kevin Ryan site:chrishlad..com This searches for Kevin Ryan mentions on my website (chrishlad dot com).

5.| Vertical bar Same purpose as OR. Example: Netflix | Hulu Netflix OR Hulu

6... Two Periods Use two periods to search within 2 number ranges. Example: movies 1980..2000

7.Location: Find news related to a particular location. Example: Elon Musk location:sanfrancisco

8.Filetype: Filter by a certain file type related to your search. Example: warren buffet :p. This filters out all the click bait news Buffet news article you don't want to read.
