Google hacks : Speed up your searching with preciseness on Google Search Engine

Speeding up your search on Google Search Engine:

Well nowadays most of use google generally as his/her search engine.Many a times while searching you might be experiencing problems with results you get from the google.
Well a little knowledge of some hacks can save you a lot of time ,in exact terms "what you want to search exactly".
Google being a full-text search engine, it indexes entire web pages instead of just titles and descriptions. Additional commands, called special syntaxes, let Google users search specific parts of web pages or specific types of information. This comes in handy when you're dealing with 2 billion web pages and need every opportunity to narrow your search results.

Now i am going to tell you some hacks might be useful for you while searching -

(1) intitle:
intitle: restricts your search to the titles of web pages. The variation, allintitle: finds pages wherein all the words specified make up the title of the web page. It's probably best to avoid the allintitle: variation, because it doesn't mix well with some
of the other syntaxes.

allintitle:"money supply" economics

(2) inurl:
inurl: restricts your search to the URLs of web pages. This syntax tends to work well for finding search and help pages, because they tend to be rather regular in composition.An allinurl: variation finds all the words listed in a URL but doesn't mix well with some other special syntaxes.

allinurl:search help

(3) intext:
intext: searches only body text (i.e., ignores link text, URLs, and titles). There's an
allintext: variation, but again, this doesn't play well with others. While its uses are
limited, it's perfect for finding query words that might be too common in URLs or link titles.


(4) inanchor:
inanchor: searches for text in a page's link anchors. A link anchor is the descriptive text of a link. For example, the link anchor in the HTML code "linux forum " is "linux question's user".


(5) site:
site: allows you to narrow your search by either a site or a top-level domain AltaVista, for example, has two syntaxes for this function (host: and domain:), but Google has only the one.

(6) link:
link: returns a list of pages linking to the specified URL. Enter and you'll be returned a list of pages that link to Google.

(7) cache:
cache: finds a copy of the page that Google indexed even if that page is no longer available at its original URL or has since changed its content completely. This is particularly useful for pages that change often.

(8) daterange:
daterange: limits your search to a particular date or range of dates that a page was
indexed.Remember also that Google reindexes pages. Whether the date range changes depends on whether the page content changed. For example, Google indexes a page on June 1.Google reindexes the page on August 13, but the page content hasn't changed. The date for the purpose of searching with daterange: is still June 1.

(9) filetype:
filetype: searches the suffixes or filename extensions.Google indexes several different Microsoft formats, including: PowerPoint (PPT), Excel (XLS), and Word (DOC).

filetype:pdf "Jssaten"

(10) related:
related: as you might expect, finds pages that are related to the specified page. Not all pages are related to other pages.

(11) info:
info: provides a page of links to more information about a specified URL. Note that this information is dependent on whether Google has indexed that URL or not.

(12) phonebook:
phonebook:, as you might expect, looks up phone numbers.

phonebook: Anand srivastava

plz try this you can really save a lot of time while searching any particular file or person so easily on google.
Have fun :)
