    Excellent thread for those people who were not using these features of google, for analysis of the competitors websites the knowledge on these tricks is quite essential. I'm already using some of these features.

    You can use Google as a currency converter.

    Eg type
    "GBP in USD" or "EUR in COP" and it will give you the conversion rate directly.

    Good tip mv5869. I regularly use xe.com, using Google in that way would be much easier.

    I just did a quick check, Google tells me that €10 is worth $14.11400, xe tells me that €10 is worth $14.0583, close enough and it is much quicker to do the conversion in Google. From now on I'll do my currency conversion calculations through Google.

    Nice sharing!

    I believe many people will tend to use simple wording than the technique. It's pretty much best to use technique where results are more over accurate and correct.

    Search engines look for pieces of text that match your query. Web pages are more likely to contain answers than questions - so search for the answer. Phrase your query how you would expect the answer to read - the difference appears slight, but it makes a huge difference. Any way your tips are always talked by members.

    Google, although a favorite search engine, has not been exploited by the useful features that it provides.

    Thanks for sharing the collection of information. Here some more .

    i) "filetype" :: This operator instructs Google to search only within the text of a particular type of file. The file type to search must be supplied after the colon.

    e.g. filetype:txt eggheadcafetips..would refine your search on "eggheadcafetips" to only text files

    ii) "link" :: This operator instructs Google to search within hyperlinks for a search term.

    iii) "intitle" :: This operator instructs Google to search for a term within the title of a

    document.

    e.g. intitle:tip submission form

    iv) "inurl" :: This operator instructs Google to search only within the URL of a document. The search term must follow the colon.

    e.g.inurl:srinathms

    v) "stocks" :: This operator instructs Google to show the Stock information of the specified stock as the first result.

    e.g. stocks:msft
