Getting the perfect result from Google is not only about finding the right search terms, so here are five ways you need to know for the best search results.

The right order of words

In her report published by the American site Business Insider, author Lisa Eadicicco cited two examples of the important role of word organization in a search; For example, when you search for “cyan blue”, you will get different results from “blue sky”, where one of the terms refers to specific shades of blue, while the other describes the color of the sky.

The same goes for the search terms “Chow Dog” and “Dog Chow”, the first refers to pet food, while the other is the name of a breed of dogs.

Of course, there will always be exceptions to this rule, and looking for something like “iPhone 11 cover” is likely to result in similar results for “the cover of the iPhone 11”. But if you do not find the results you are looking for, it is useful to check the order of the written words.

Sign (-) excludes certain words in the search

The author has indicated that you should use the minus (-) tag to improve the search by excluding words that are not related to the search. For example, if you are doing research to find out about the penguin (animal), and want to exclude the results of a hockey team with the same name, try looking for something like “Penguin – Pittsburgh – Hockey.”

Suggested links

If you are looking for specific information on a general topic, try clicking on the links that appear under the main search result. These links usually appear in Wikipedia search results, and can take you directly to a section of the page that includes the information you are looking for. It’s a small tip, but it can help you find what you’re looking for a little faster.

Do not suggest a result

A common mistake is to formulate search terms, so they indicate a specific result, as this can lead to Google results that do not reflect the most accurate answer to your query.

For example, if you use Google to know the average octopus length, you do not write “The average octopus length is 21 inches”; On the other hand, the best search request in this case is: “average octopus length”.

Just as you should not make any prior rulings to the judge, you should not set the conditions to ask Google to give you some type of answer.

Filter results

Two-point code can be a useful tool for filtering search results, by website and domain type, in case you are looking for an article on a specific website.

For example, try typing “site: agaranmag.com folding phones” if you only want to browse AgaranMag articles.

Or if you are looking for medical research, but only want results from educational institutions, try writing “site: edu” with your query.
