πŸ’―Let's make googling things fun

Unleash the Art of Googling
While you probably use google about every day, there may still be a lot you don't know about how to search smart. If you have ever struggled to get the results you want, here are some examples you can follow to improve your Googling abilities.
I personally use these tricks to save time and get accurate results in no time.

  • To download TV series in HD without using torrent
    search index of and you will get 100% working links to download the series in HD

  • To get search results involving specific keywords
    use quotes(β€œβ€) to search for an exact phrase in your search query

  • To eliminate results containing specific words
    use the minus/dash(-) sign to eliminate results containing certain words

  • Search content of a particular website
    search ** site: **to search inside a single website i.e if you want results from within only one site.

  • Want synonyms to appear in the results
    use tilde(~) when you want also its synonyms to appear in the results

  • To get accurate results of queries having unknown words
    searching a phrase in quotes with an asterisk(** * **) replacing a word will search all variations of that phrase. It’s helpful if you’re trying to determine a song from its lyrics, but you couldn’t make out the entire phrase.

  • Search using image
    Ever come across a photo that looks strangely familiar? Or if you want to know where it came from? If you 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.

  • Flip a coin
    Let google flip a coin for you when you don’t have one on hand.

  • To get similar websites
    search related: to get websites similar to it

  • To get the documents of a certain filetype
    search filetype: to get the files in a particular format, if present.
