Google Search Tips And Tricks

We can never get enough Google search tricks, which is why we’re glad to see that Time asked some Googlers to offer some tips for Google search that they think too few people have heard of. Some of them are very well known, of course, such as searching for whole phrases by using quotation marks and searching for content on individual websites, but others definitely caught our eyes as features we never knew about before.

One particularly neat trick we’ve never heard of was using “vs.” in a search to get quick comparisons between two kinds of foods. So for instance, if you Google “kale vs. spinach,” you’ll be given a small table that shows pictures of both different kinds of vegetables along with calorie counts and nutritional information for each one.

Time’s list also includes tips for searching Google News’ massive archive that dates back to the late 19th century, how to quickly find definitions for both real words and for common Internet slang such as “SMH,” and even how to play the classic Atari game Breakout just by doing a search for it in Google Images.

Time’s full list is worth reading and can be found in the source link below.
