||Phrase search ("")
||Searches for pages containing the exact phrase.
["Statistical Consultants Ltd"] would find pages that contain the exact phrase 'Statistical Consultants Ltd'. It would only find pages that have the words Statistical, Consultants and Ltd, in that order.
||Search within a specific website (site:)
||[site:http://www.statisticalconsultants.co.nz/] lists every page on the Statistical Consultants Ltd website.
[site:http://www.statisticalconsultants.co.nz/blog] lists the blog posts and the blog.html page.
["statistical analysis techniques" site:http://www.statisticalconsultants.co.nz/] lists every page on the Statistical Consultants Ltd website containing the phrase 'statistical analysis techniques'.
||Terms to exclude (-)
||[statistical consultants -wikipedia] would be the same as the search [statistical consultants] but would exclude pages that have the word wikipedia.
||Fill in the blanks (*)
||["statistical * ltd"] is a search for pages with a phase (of at least three words), where the first word is statistical and the last word is ltd.
||Search exactly as is (+)
||To prevent Google from including pages with synonyms of the search term, include a '+' sign immediately before that term.
[+statistical] would list pages containing the word statistical, while [statistical] would list pages containing the words statistical and statistics.
||The OR operator
||The OR operator can be used to search for either of two terms, rather than both.
[regression OR simulations] would essentially be a blend of the two searches [regression] and [simulations]; while the search [regression simulations] would prioritise pages that contain both words.
||Synonyms and related terms operator (~)
||The ~ operator can be used to search for a term plus a wide range of related words (not necessarily synonymous, and of a wider range than the default).
[~statistical] searches for pages with words including: data, mathematical, statistics and statistical.
||Numerical range operator (..)
||This can be used if you want to search for pages containing numbers within a particular range.
[American history 1945..2009] would search for pages with the terms American and history, and any numbers between 1945 and 2009.
This operator can also be used for currency. For example:
[computers $1000..$2000] does a search for pages with the word computers, and any dollar amounts between $1000 and $2000.
||Search by file type (filetype:)
||Instead of searching for pages in general, you can search for a particular file type.
["introduction to regression" filetype:pdf] would search for pdf files containing the phrase 'introduction to regression'.
||Search by content type
||Instead of searching for pages containing the search terms anywhere (the default), it is possible to restrict the search to one type of page content.
