Type in key words
Type in key words related to your search. Try to be specific without including too many words.
Put quotes around any phrase in your search. This tells Google to look for words in a specific order. Quotes are especially helpful with names.
Narrow down your search by adding additional words or phrases. Try to think of unusual words that are specific to the thing you’re looking for.
Searching range of numbers
To search within a range of numbers, type a low number and high number separated by two periods, with no spaces. For example, if you want to find something between 100 and 200 dollars, type dollar sign-one hundred-dot-dot-dollar sign-two hundred.
Use "Advanced Search"
To further refine your search, click 'Advanced Search.' Here you can specify languages, file formats, dates, and other characteristics.
Use different words
If you’re still not finding what you want, start over with different words or phrases. That’s it—you’ll have what you’re looking for in no time.
