Google Search Hacks

To be honest who does not want to know how to make accurate google search so that I can find the exact result I'm searching for. (Each of us, right?) So I thought why shouldn't I share some great Google search hacks with you guys to make your query smart, easy and more effective. Yea, right we all know how to search but chances are, unless you're a technology geek, you probably still use Google in its simplest form and then the search engine has its own plenty of tricks too.
Here are some easy yet useful Google search hacks, from basic tips to new features just recently released.
1. Search Within A website
Most Often, we want to search a specific website for content that matches a certain phrase. It is possible that the site doesn’t support a built-in search feature, in this case we can use Google to search the site for our term. Simply use the site:anysite.com modifier and Google will return us with all the top articles of that site and every thing relating it.
2. Exclude Unwanted Results Using Minus Sign
Now, this is some coolest crazy trick ever. We all are aware with the annoying feeling when we search for certain thing and it returns us with loads and loads of unwanted results. (How to deal with that? meh!!). It is actually quite simple and easy just use the minus sign and remove all the unwanted results (e.g. swallow -bird) and re-run the search.






3. Use Of Asterisk
Here’s another trick for searching a phrase where you do not know all the right words like when you are searching for a song you hear at some event and you don't know its name or who is the singer , just use an asterisk replacing a word (e.g. “when you ready * it”) and it will return you with that song or anything you're looking for.





4. Quotes To Search Exact Phrase
This is a well-known trick for searching a phrase in quotes, it will return pages with the same words and in the exact same order as what’s in the quotes. It’s one of the most important search hack and it is especially useful if you’re trying to find results containing a specific phrase.
5. This OR That
By default, when you are searching Google will include all the terms specified in the search. If you're looking for more than one thing to search, then you can use the OR operator and Google will return you with both terms related result. (The OR should be capital).


6. Using “VS”
When OR returns you with both the results, using VS will give you the comparative result between both the terms. Type in “rice vs. wheat” for example, and see it yourself.


7. Result For Recipes
While searching for your favorite food if you click “Search Tools” right under the search bar, it will be enable you to filter recipes based on ingredients, cooking time and calories. It’s the perfect tool if you have certain dietary restrictions.
8. Use “DEFINE:”
If you want to quickly know the definition of a word or phrase or anything, simply use the define: command. It will return you with its meaning, synonyms, word origin and everything. Try out DEFINE: wowzers.


9. Numeric Ranges
This is a rarely used but highly helpful tip. If you want to find results that contain any range of numbers. You can simply do this by using the A..B modifier (Eg Search: movies2000..2017)


10. News in a Specific Location
If you want to search for the news related to any specific location, you can just use the command location: and it will return you with all the news coming from that location.


11. Search images using images
This is my favorite search hack ever. If you want to know where certain image came from just save the image, and then search it on Google Images with the camera button, you’ll be able to see similar images on the web and their related information. (Cool, no?)
12. Flip A Coin
Click on the mic icon on Google’s search bar, and say “flip a coin” or “heads or tails”.  It will flip the coin and return you with heads or tails answer in speech. So now instead of flipping a coin on your own just let Google do it for you.

13. Linked Pages
If you want to search for every website that cites a certain website article on their website, you can use the link: command, immediately followed by the name of a page. Google will give you all pages that link to that website. The more specific the URL is, the more accuracy in results.

Who is stalking me on Facebook?

"Who is viewing my Facebook profile on daily basis?" has always been a question that almost all of us have wondered about, but never got a clue.



And If you were to state you've never pondered who's been looking your Facebook timeline, you'd be lying, undoubtedly. Almost all of us are keen to know who've been looking for us and flicking through our profile pictures. (Right or naah?!)

Furthermore, despite the fact that there are plenty of applications that claim to disclose to you who's been on your profile, yet they obviously never work — which is exactly the reason you're here, reading this article to reveal "Who's been stalking you on Facebook".
