Search tricks you might don’t know about

Hi! Everyone, hope you all are fine.
Today I am going to help you in making your search results more specific result. Here are the few tips, which can help you search results. Also with the name of top 5 search engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com, and Aol.com) which supports the following tricks…



1.    Dictionary
All the top 5 search engine acts like an online Dictionary. If you need the definition of any word came across to you, you don’t have to use dictionary or any website you just need to use definition:   replace the with the word you are searching for.
For e.g.: definition: Computer
And Google also provide and Dictionary search engine google.com/dictionary

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com, and Aol.com

2.    Specific file type
Most of the time we keep searching for any particular file type (like: PDF, MP3, TXT and etc) in search engine by going t each and every webpage. But now you can search it easily without going to each webpage by using filetype: replace the with the file type you are searching for and also replace the with the word(s) you are searching for.
For e.g.: filetype:pdf Search Engine Optimization

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com, and Aol.com

3.    Calculation
Many of you might don’t know, you can use search engine and in few web browser address bar (like: Google Chrome) for calculation. Just type it as you type the digests and signs you want calculate as you type in a calculator.
For e.g.: 16*16

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com, and Aol.com

4.    Currency conversion
Many of you need to check the T.V. or the site where you can see the current pries of any particular currency. But now you use the search engine or few web Brower address bar (like: Google Chrome)to convert your currency to the currency you want to convert. Just type the to replace the with your amount, with your currency name and replace with the currency you want to convert in.
For e.g.: 1000 INR to USD

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.com

5.    Search within specific website
Sometime it happens that we don’t want to search all over the world, we just want to search in a particular website. Just use site: replace the with the website you want to search in (can be also use for subdomains) and also replace with the word(s) you are searching for.
For e.g.: site:jajodia-saket.co.cc Saket

Supported Search engines: Google, Ask.com, and Aol.com

6.    Current time
Sometime you need to watch an online event with the different country time zone but you don’t know what is the time in that country. But now you can just search using time replace the with the country which country time you want to know.
For e.g.: time India

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com, and Aol.com

7.    Weather information
Have to go somewhere and want to know how will be the weather. Just search weather replace with the city you want to know.
For e.g.: Kolkata weather

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo and Bing

8.    Website extension
Want to search in a certain type of domains (e.g.: .com for commercial use, .edu for educational use, .info for informational use and etc), just use site: replace with the type of domain you want to search and also replace with the word(s) you are looking for.
For e.g.: site:info NASA

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com, and Aol.com

9.    Search within URL
You can search within the URL. As a blogger I use it to find new or old, you might have notice in many blog URLs the year, month and date is given. So it makes it easy to search. Just use inurl: replace the with the year, month, date or word(s) you are searching for.
For e.g.: inurl:2010/08 Search tricks

Supported Search engines: Google, Yahoo and Ask.com

10.  Sunrise and sunset time
If you want to know at what time sunrise or sunset going to happen in your city, just use sunrise or sunset replace with the city you want to know.
For e.g.: sunrise Kolkata or sunset Kolkata

Supported Search engines: Google (sunrise), Google (sunset)
