Find Files With Google

Most of us really dont know how to make effective search on google although we know what to search for.But nowadays there have been so many sites indexed in google that normal searches generally the one containing the keyword "FREE" will most probably will lead to misleading results because so many sites are doing google search engine optimization and much more things to get higher page ranks in searches ,so the outcome of this is we wont get desired results.In second case when their is a huge site and you want to search into it bt google wont lead to you the direct page which you want to see in the site.So here is the MANTRA to do effective google search.

Intitle:This syntax restricts a search to titles of Web sites; it can be effectively combined with other syntaxes to customize a search.ex

google search:intitle:"Free mp3 downloads"

Inurl:It is used to search URLs of Web sites,can be used to find sites from within a domain, directory or path, it can also be effectively combined with other syntaxes to customize a search.ex

google search:-inurl:"rapidshare.com"
inurl:"hacks" intitle:"hacking yahoo"

Site:It allows you to limit a search to a site or a top level domain. It wont search a site within a subdirectory (i.e., anything beyond the /).

google search:-site:rapidshare.com inurl:rarmp3ogg

Intext:It searches for words in only the text of a Web site.It ignores link text, URLs and titles so is beneficial to use for finding text only.ex

google search:- intext:"google.com"

Phrase your question in the form of an answer.So instead of typing, "What is the average rainfall in the Amazon basin?", you might get better results by typing "The average rainfall in the Amazon basin is."

This is an old one, but very important: Put quotes around phrases that must be searched together. If you put quotes around "electric curtains," Google won't waste your time finding one set of Web pages containing the word "electric" and another set containing the word "curtains."

Similarly, put a hyphen right before any word you want screened out. If you're looking up dolphins, for example, you'll have to wade through a million Miami Dolphins pages unless you search for "dolphins - Miami."

Google is a global White Pages and Yellow Pages. Search for "phonebook:home depot norwalk , ct," Google instantly produces the address and phone number of the Norwalk Home Depot. This works with names ("phonebook:robert jones las vegas, NV") as well as businesses.

Don't put any space after "phonebook." And in all of the following examples, don't type the quotes I'm showing you here.

Google is a package tracker. Type a FedEx or UPS package number (just the digits); when you click Search, Google offers a link to its tracking information.

Google is a calculator. Type in an equation ("32+2345*3-234=").

Google is a units-of-measurement converter. Type "teaspoons in a gallon," for example, or "centimeters in a foot."

Google is a stock ticker. Type in AAPL or MSFT, for example, to see a link to the current Apple or Microsoft stock price, graphs, financial news and so on.

Google is an atlas. Type in an area code, like 212, to see a Mapquest map of the area.

Google is Wal-Mart's computer. Type in a UPC bar code number, such as "036000250015," to see the description of the product you've just "scanned in." (Thanks to the Google Blog,
http://google.blogspace.com , for this tip and the next couple.)

Google is an aviation buff. Type in a flight number like "United 22" for a link to a map of that flight's progress in the air. Or type in the tail number you see on an airplane for the full registration form for that plane.

Google is the Department of Motor Vehicles. Type in a VIN (vehicle identification number, which is etched onto a plate, usually on the door frame, of every car), like "JH4NA1157MT001832," to find out the car's year, make and model.

For hours of rainy-day entertainment, visit http://labs.google.com . Here, you'll find links to new, half-finished Google experiments-like Google Voice, in which you call (650) 623-6706, speak the words you want to search for and then open your browser to view the results.
Disclaimer: It wasn't working when I tried it. (Ditto a lot of these experiments.)
