Hello Socratica Friends! We’re here to help you be a Great Student! In this video, we’ll help you level up your searching techniques and make you a Google Pro.
Are you making the most of GOOGLE – the world’s largest search engine? Part of being a great student is knowing how to make the best use of all the educational resources you have at your disposal. It’s the biggest repository of knowledge ever in the history of mankind – but it’s not going to do you much good unless you know how to use it.
If you’d like to get faster and better at Google, try these tips and tricks!
You can jump to each Google Tip here:
0:55 Use Multiple Keywords
1:29 Use Quotation Marks
3:05 Use the Minus Operator to Exclude
3:27 Use the OR Operator
3:48 Use the Number Range Operator
4:12 Use the Site Operator
4:30 Use Define
4:48 Use the Around Operator
5:26 Use the Wildcard Operator
5:49 Use the Filetype Operator
NOTE: Because Google is always changing and improving, there is a chance that these tricks and shortcuts may not always be supported in the future. At the time we made this video, we tested them all and they were all working for us here at Socratica Studios. Hope they help your searching!
We were able to make this video thanks to the support of our Patrons on Patreon. We are so thankful for their continued interest and support. We would like to recognize the contributions of our VIP Patrons Tracy Karin Prell, Austin Anderson, Carlos Araujo, and Vishal Shah. What a huge difference it makes having them on the Socratica Team!
