10 things you need to know about Google Basic Search

This article, The Google Basic Top 10, is a great, simple, breakdown of ways to make searching with Google easier and more effective.

A few highlights include:

  • the word "and" is assumed. You do not need to type it in, Google knows it's supposed to be there.
  • use quotes around a search to find only results for that phrase, not each individual word - "Brooklyn Bridge" will get you only results related to the Brooklyn Bridge, not Brooklyn results and bridge results too
