Useful Google Hacks And Google Search Tricks

A query or keyword is anything that a user types in the search engine to find the information he needs. With developments in SEO, the search engines provided us with some useful search commands / hacks that helps to save time in searching. Some of these search engine hacks are useful SEO tools.

Anyone can search like a “googler” with the following Google hacks.
  • quotes
  • cache
  • site
  • inurl
  • intitle
  • related
  • +
  • -
  • *

When the search term (word or phrase) is put in quotes the search engine returns the results which contain the exact term.


This is the copy of your website in Google. When you search for cache:thedofollowblog.blogspot.com it will return a page like this.

The indication at the top helps to know the last time Googlebot visited your website. The text-only version at the top helps to find out how the search engine sees your website. This is helpful to find out if there is any hidden text or hidden links in the website.


This search query is limited to a website. It returns all the urls in the website. The result for site:makemytrip.com is shown.

This search query helps to know how many pages of your website is indexed in Google.


This searches your query in the URL.

inurl:“SEO India” will give results which contain exactly SEO India in the URL.


The search result will contain your query in the title.

intitle:“SEO India” will give result with pages containing SEO India in the title.

The inurl and intitle can be used with site: command.

For example site:somewebsite.com intitle: “keyword” will help to know whether there are multiple pages in your website with the same keyword as title. Then these pages will compete each other for the same keyword. So correction is required for the website.


related:www.seomoz.org will give sites similar to seomoz

This is useful to find out similar websites.

Plus +

Will tell Google to search for exact term. +NYC will give importance to NYC and not New York City. This helps to avoid synonyms in search results.

Minus -

Royal -challengers -Bangalore will return results without challengers and Bangalore. This helps in filtering keywords in your key phrase.


Wildcard operator

It helps in replacing several words.

how * Google can be used for searching how to use Google.
