4 Google Tricks

September 21, 2005

Here are four things I didn't know you could do in a google search until recently:

  1. Fuzzy Search - Search for ~music player, and google searches for music player, mp3 player, audio player, and other words that have similar meanings to music.,
  2. Number Ranges - Searches for a range of numbers, for example mp3 player 20..60 GB will match 20, 40, and 60GB mp3 players (and any other number inbetween).
  3. Wildcard - When you place a * in your query, google will match any word in between. For example: apple * player matches apple ipod player, apple mp3 player, etc.
  4. Search Page Title only - Use the allintitle: operator to search only page titles. For example: allintitle:ipod Searches for any page with ipod in the title. You can also use intitle: to match just one word.

nice find! I use +,-,* regularly, and allintitle together with the rest of the advanced operators are documented at http://www.google.com/help/operators.html, but I had never seen tilde (~) and the range operator (..) as used here... feels kinda perlish :). can you say where these are documented? thanks, eokyere
