8 Searching For Similar Websites

If there is something you like online and want to find related websites then type ‘related’ and then the address of the site without spaces.

9 Searching While phrases

The simplest way of framing a search term is within quotation marks to find something specific but in exact order. For example typing ‘I’m picking up good vibrations without quotation marks, search will show these words how they appear at random on any given website and in no particular order. But! If you type the same sentence within quotation marks, you will get specific results where the words appear exactly how you typed them. This is helpful when you’re searching the lyrics of a song.

10 Search Words without Relevancy or Importance

If you want to remove unimportant words from your search just add a minus symbol before each one. Eg: if you are searching a site about interesting books but don’t want to purchase any, you can apply the following.
