Google Tricks

We all are using Google from day one when we start to use the internet. But do we know some of the tricks which would help us to get our desired result easily, as the Google is the ocean of knowledge so to get our desired results we must know some of its tricks.

1.  Emphasis on one word.

We can emphasize one word in the result i.e if we want the result from only one source then we can emphasize the source name and we are done. Only those results will be shown which are either from that source or related to the word.
Example: Oreo Update “tech bugle”

2. Omission of one word from our result.
