Below is a list of our top Google tricks many people who use Google don't know.

Find weather and movies

Type "weather" or "movies" followed by a zip code or city and state to display current weather conditions or movie theaters in your area. For example, typing weather 84101 gives you the current weather conditions for Salt Lake City, UT. Typing movies 84101 gives you a link for show times for movies in that area.


Pull up the definition of the word by typing define followed by the word you want to define. For example, typing define bravura would display the definition of that word.

Local maps and search

Visit Google Maps, enter the area you want to search and the keyword of the place you want to find. For example, typing restaurant would display restaurants in the area.

Phone number lookup

Enter a full phone number with area code to display the name and address associated with that phone number.

Track airline flight and packages

Enter the airline and flight number to display the status of an airline flight and it's arrival time. For example, type delta 123 to display this flight information if available.

Google can also give a direct link to package tracking information if you enter a UPS, FedEx or USPS tracking number.


Translate text, a full web page, or search using the Google Language Tools.

Pages linked to you

See what other web pages are linking to your website or blog by typing link: followed by your URL. For example, typing link: displays all pages linking to TeQ I.Q.

Find PDF results only

Add fileType: to your search to display results that only match a certain file type. For example, if you want to display PDF results only, type "dell xps" fileType:pdf -- this is a great way to find online manuals.


Use the Google Search engine as a calculator by typing a math problem in the search. For example, typing 100 + 200 would display results as 300.


Quickly get to a stock quote price, chart, and related links by typing the stock symbol in Google. For example, typing msft displays the stock information for Microsoft.

Group your search for an exact match

Group your search query for an exact match by surrounding what words you want as an exact match with quotes. For example, if you are searching for computer help, better results are returned if you surround the search with quotes, like "TeQ I.Q.".

Remove keywords from search

If your results have keywords you are not searching for, use a minus sign. For example, if you are looking for computer help, but do not want pages containing "Windows," type "TeQ I.Q." -windows

Use number ranges in a search

Google supports number ranges. For example, if you are searching for computer help between the year 2003 to 2005, you can type "TeQ I.Q." 2003..2005

Use wildcards in searches

Google is capable of understanding the * wildcard in a search. For example, you could search for "fastest * in the world" to find results like "fastest birds in the world," "fastest cars in the world," and "fastest aircraft in the world."

Learn about other Google operators

Google has several operators and functions that can be used in the search to help perform special search functions. Below is a list of these operators and a brief description about each of them.

define word - adding "define" in front of any word gives you a definition of the word. - Adding "site:" in front of any domain shows you search results for only that domain. For example, you could search for "microsoft" to show search results with "microsoft" in them, but only from the domain.


There must not be a space between "site:" and the domain.
