This operator searches for the exact phrase within speech marks only. This is ideal when the phrase you are using to search is ambiguous and could be easily confused with something else, or when you’re not quite getting relevant enough results back. For example:
This self explanatory operator searches for a given search term OR an equivalent term.
site:facebook.com | site:twitter.com
site:facebook.com & site:twitter.com
(site:facebook.com | site:twitter.com) & intext:"login" (site:facebook.com | site:twitter.com) (intext:"login")
This will order results by the number of occurrence of the keyword.
Adding a tilde to a search word tells Google that you want it to bring back synonyms for the term as well. For example, entering “~set” will bring back results that include words like “configure”, “collection” and “change” which are all synonyms of “set”. Fun fact: “set” has the most definitions of any word in the dictionary.
Glob pattern (*)
Putting an asterisk in a search tells Google ‘I don’t know what goes here’. Basically, it’s really good for finding half remembered song lyrics or names of things.
