Part 1

HOW GOOGLE WORKS

Google is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal, but only some fully understand how to utilize it. Learning to Google like a pro can save you time and help you find the answers you need, whether you're a student, a professional, or just someone looking for information quickly and efficiently. We'll review advanced Google search techniques in this blog post to help you get the most out of the search engine. We'll show you how to refine your searches and find exactly what you're looking for, from using quotation marks to finding exact phrases to utilizing the minus sign to exclude certain words. So, let's get started and
discover how to Google like a pro, and everyone understands how to use it fully.

Google Search is a fully automated search engine that uses software known as web crawlers to explore the web regularly to find pages to add to our index. The vast majority of pages listed in google results are discovered and added automatically when google web crawlers explore the web. This document explains the stages of how Search works in the context of your website. Having this foundational knowledge can assist you in resolving crawling issues, getting your pages indexed, and learning how to optimise how your site appears in Google Search.

Introducing the three stages of Google Search

Google Search works in three stages, and not all pages make it through each step:

  1. Crawling Google downloads text, images, and videos from pages found on the internet with automated programs called crawlers.

  2. Indexing Google analyses the text, images, and video files on the page and stores the information in the Google index, which is an extensive database.

  3. Serving search results: When a user searches on Google, Google returns information relevant to the user's query.

Crawling

The first step is to discover what pages are available on the internet. Because there is no centralized registry of all web pages, Google must constantly search for new and updated pages to add to its available pages. "URL discovery" is the name given to this process. Some pages are well-known because Google has visited them previously. When Google follows a link from a known page to a new page, for example, a hub page, such as a category page, links to a new blog post, it discovers new pages. When you submit a list of pages, additional pages are found (sitemap) for Google to crawl.

When Google discovers a page's URL, it may visit (or "crawl") the page to see what's on it. We use a massive computer network to crawl billions of web pages. The program that does the fetching is called googlebot (also known as a crawler, robot, bot, or spider). Googlebot employs an algorithmic process to determine which sites to crawl, how frequently to crawl them, and how many pages to retrieve from each site. google crawlers are also programmed to avoid overloading the site by creeping it slowly.

However, Googlebot doesn't crawl all the pages it discovered. Some pages may be disallowed for crawling by the site owner, and other pages may not be accessed without logging in to the site.

During the crawl, Google renders the page and runs any JavaScript it finds using a recent version of Chrome, similar to how your browser renders pages you visit. Rendering is vital because websites often rely on JavaScript to bring content to the page, and without causing it, Google might not see that content.

Crawling depends on whether Google's crawlers can access the site. Some common issues with Googlebot accessing sites include:

Indexing

Google attempts to understand what a page is about after crawling it. This stage is known as indexing and consists of processing and analyzing textual content, key content tags, and attributes.

During the indexing process, Google determines if a page is a duplicate of another page on the internet or canonical.

The canonical page is the one that appears in search results. To choose the canonical, we first group (also known as clustering) the pages on the internet that have similar content, and then we choose the one that is most representative of the group. The other pages in the cluster are alternate versions that may be served in different contexts, such as if the user is searching on a mobile device or looking for a specific page from that cluster.

Google also collects signals about the canonical page and its contents, which may be used in the subsequent stage when the page is served in search results. Some signs include the page's language, the country where the content is localised, the page's usability, and so on.

The information gathered about the canonical page, and its cluster could be saved in the Google index, a massive database hosted on thousands of computers. Indexing is not guaranteed; not every page processed by Google is indexed.

Indexing is also affected by the page's content and metadata. Some examples of common indexing issues are:

Serving search results

When a user enters a query, Google machines search the index for matching pages and return the results they believe are the best and most relevant to the question. Several factors influence relevance, including information such as the user's location, language, and device (desktop or phone). For example, searching for "bicycle repair shops" in Paris will yield different results than searching in Hong Kong.

ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

  1. Be thoughtful
  • Begin with a simple query

  • Be precise

  • Avoid redundant or unnecessary terms

  • Break your query down into smaller questions

  1. Watch your words
  • Every word is meaningful Terms matter Order matter

When you choose a word to include in a query, please make sure it's meaningful; for example, dove, a dove, and the dove will all return very different results.

  • Google does not care about speaking, punctuation, or capitalization.

Part 3

IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT ANSWERS

When searching for information on Google, it can be challenging to determine which sources are credible and which are not. However, a few methods exist for locating the correct answers while searching.

  1. Making sense of SERP (Search Engine Results Page) - ๐’—๐’†๐’“๐’Š๐’‡๐’š๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ ๐’“๐’†๐’”๐’–๐’๐’•๐’”

The Search Engine Results Page, or SERP, is the page that appears after a user enters a search query into a search engine such as Google. The SERP displays a list of results deemed relevant by the search engine to the user's query.

There are a few things to look for when verifying the results on a SERP. Checking the URLs of the websites that appear on the first page of the SERP is one way to validate the results. Websites with URLs ending in.gov or.edu are more credible and reliable sources of information because they are associated with government or educational institutions.

Another way to validate the results is to look for articles or pages written by well-known authors or organisations. Websites like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Harvard Business Review are trusted sources of information.

Please check the date of the information provided. You can often find the date the page was last updated, which can help you determine whether or not the information is current.

Finally, you can use Google's tools, such as the 'about this result' feature, to learn more about the website and the information it provides. This feature can help you determine whether a website is credible.

To summarize, when verifying the results on a SERP, look for credible sources such as government or educational websites, reputable authors or organizations, and current information. Use Google's tools to learn more about the website.

  1. Lateral browsing

Spreading through related or similar content while researching a topic is known as lateral browsing. This is in contrast to traditional browsing, which is frequently linear and follows a specific path or sequence.

Lateral browsing allows users to broaden their exploration of a topic by looking at information from various sources and perspectives. It also enables users to discover new knowledge and ideas they would not have found through traditional browsing methods.

There are several methods for engaging in lateral browsing:

  1. Utilize Google's "People also search for" function: This feature is located at the bottom of the SERP and displays a list of related search queries that are closely related to the search query you entered.

  2. Use the "Searches related to" function: This feature appears at the bottom of the SERP and displays a list of search queries similar to the one you used.

  3. Use Wikipedia: Wikipedia is an excellent resource for lateral browsing because it contains a wealth of information on a wide range of topics and includes links to related articles and resources.

  4. Follow the breadcrumbs: If you come across an interesting article or page, you can use the links on the page to learn more about the topic and find additional resources.

  5. Use social media: Following related hashtags or joining associated communities on social media platforms such as Twitter, Reddit, or Quora can be a great way to discover new information and resources related to a topic.

SEARCH OPERATORS

Google search operators are special characters and commands that can be added to a search query to help refine and narrow down search results. These operators can be used to search for specific types of content or to exclude certain types of content from the search results.

  1. Matching operators

Google search matching operators are special commands or symbols that can be added to a search query to specify how the search engine should check the terms in the question. Some examples of matching operators include:

  1. Google lens and image search

Google Lens is a visual search tool that uses image recognition technology to identify and provide information about objects, buildings, and landmarks in a photo. It can locate products, translate text, scan barcodes and QR codes, and more. Google Lens is available as a standalone app on Android and iOS, and it can also be accessed through the Google Photos app and Google Assistant.

Using Google Lens, users can take photos of an object or scene. Google Lens will analyze the image and provide relevant information such as the name of the thing, its price, reviews, or even an online store where to purchase it. It also includes a text recognition feature, which allows users to copy and paste text from a photo and translate it into multiple languages.

On the other hand, Google Image Search is a feature that allows users to search for specific images or images of particular things using keywords or phrases. It can be accessed by visiting images.google.com or using the Google Images option in the main Google search bar.

When using Google Image Search, users can search for images using keywords or phrases, and the search results will include photos that match the search criteria. Users can filter search results by size, type, and color. Additionally, Google Image Search allows users to do a reverse image search, enabling users to find other web pages that contain the same image by providing a link or an image.

In summary, Google Lens is a visual search tool that uses image recognition technology to identify and provide information about objects, buildings, and landmarks in a photo. In contrast, Google Image Search is a feature that allows users to search for specific images or images of particular things using keywords or phrases. Both can be a great way to find relevant and valuable information from images.

  1. Specialized Search Engines

Specialized search engines are search engines that are designed to focus on a specific topic or type of content. They differ from general search engines like Google, which aim to provide search results from various sources and issues.

Some examples of specialized search engines include:

Google Scholar: This search engine is designed for academic research and allows users to search for scholarly articles, theses, books, and conference papers.

PubMed: This search engine is a U.S. National Library of Medicine service that provides access to millions of scientific articles in medicine and the life sciences.

DuckDuckGo: This search engine focuses on privacy and does not track usersโ€™ search history or personal information. It returns results from various sources but emphasizes protecting usersโ€™ search privacy.

Dogpile: This search engine aggregates results from multiple search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. and presents them on a single page, making it easy to compare the results from different search engines.

Wolfram Alpha: This search engine is a computational knowledge engine that answers questions and provides information on various topics. It can perform calculations, generate graphs, and answer questions on multiple issues, including science, math, engineering, and more.

Bing: This search engine by Microsoft also serves as a specialized search engine by providing features such as video search, image search, and news search.

These are just a few examples of the many specialized search engines available on the internet. Users can more easily find relevant and helpful information on a specific topic or content using specialized search engines.

  1. Keyboard shortcuts

Google provides a variety of keyboard shortcuts that can be used to navigate and perform actions within the search results quickly. These shortcuts can help users to save time and be more efficient when using Google. Here are some examples of Google keyboard shortcuts:

Press the 'j' key to move to the following search results

Press the 'k' key to move to the previous search result

Press the 'n' key to move to the next page of the search results

Press the 'p' key to move to the previous page of the search results

Press the 'o' key to open the selected search result in a new tab

Press the 'Enter' key to open the selected search result

Press the 'Tab' key to move to the following search result and the
'Shift+Tab' keys to move to the previous search result

Press the 'g' key then 's' key to go to the settings

Press the 'g' key then 'i' key to go to the Images tab

Press the 'g' key then 'v' key to go to the Videos tab

Press the 'g' key then 'n' key to go to the News tab

These are just a few examples of keyboard shortcuts available on Google. To see the complete list of shortcuts, you can visit the Google support page or type "Google keyboard shortcuts" in the search bar. Using these keyboard shortcuts, users can quickly navigate and perform actions within the search results, saving time and increasing efficiency.

IN CONCLUSION

Searching effectively on Google is a skill that can be learned and improved upon. To search like a pro, it's essential to understand the various tools and features that Google offers, such as search operators, specialized search engines, and keyboard shortcuts.

One way to search more effectively is to use search operators. These special characters and commands can be added to a Google search query to help refine and narrow down search results.

Another way to search more effectively is to use specialized search engines. These search engines are designed to focus on a specific topic or type of content and can help users to find relevant and valuable information more easily.

Lastly, keyboard shortcuts can help users quickly navigate and perform actions within the search results, saving time and increasing efficiency.

It's also important to remember that Google is a search engine and doesn't evaluate the quality of the information provided by the web pages it indexes, so it's always important to be critical and use good judgement when searching for information.

By understanding and utilizing these tools, you can become a more efficient and effective searcher and access the information you need more quickly and easily.

Here are a few tips on how to use Google more effectively:

Use quotation marks to search for an exact phrase. For example, searching for "chocolate chip cookies" will return results that include that exact phrase.

Use the minus sign to exclude certain words from your search. For example, searching for chocolate -chip will return results that include the word "chocolate" but exclude results that include the word "chip".

Use the site: operator to search for a specific website. For example, searching for "chocolate chip cookies" site:nytimes.com will return results from the New York Times website that include that exact phrase.

Use the filetype: operator to search for specific file types. For example, searching for "chocolate chip cookies" filetype:pdf will return PDF documents that include that exact phrase.

Use the * operator as a wildcard to search for variations of a word. For example, searching for "chocolat*" will return results that include words like chocolate, chocolates, chocolatey, etc.

Use the "define:" operator to look up the definition of a word. For example, searching for "define: chocolate" will return the definition of the word chocolate.

Use the "related:" operator to find similar sites to a specific URL. For example, searching for "related:nytimes.com" will return similar sites to nytimes.com.

Use the "cache:" operator to view the cached version of a website. For example, searching for "cache:nytimes.com" will return the cached version of the New York Times website.

Use the "info:" operator to view information about a specific website. For example, searching for "info:nytimes.com" will return information about the New York Times website.

Use the Google Advanced Search page to refine your search results by date, language, location, and more.

By using these tips and tricks, you can improve your Google search results and find the information you need more quickly and easily.

11 Tips That Make You a Better Typescript Programmer

typescript

1 Think in {Set}

Type is an everyday concept to programmers, but itโ€™s surprisingly difficult to define it succinctly. I find it helpful to use Set as a conceptual model instead.

#2 Understand declared type and narrowed type

One extremely powerful typescript feature is automatic type narrowing based on control flow. This means a variable has two types associated with it at any specific point of code location: a declaration type and a narrowed type.

#3 Use discriminated union instead of optional fields
