Hi Robert

It is only a question if you are capable to search Google. Most people not
even ever tried to search Google the right way, even they studied and wrote
their thesis' or dissertations with try and error browse searches. ;-)

In short:
12 Expert Google Search Tips

   1. *Explicit Phrase:*
   Lets say you are looking for content about internet marketing.  Instead
   of just typing *internet marketing *into the Google search box, you will
   likely be better off searching explicitly for the phrase.  To do this,
   simply enclose the search phrase within double quotes.

   Example: "internet marketing"

   2. *Exclude Words:*
   Lets say you want to search for content about internet marketing, but
   you want to exclude any results that contain the term *advertising*.  To
   do this, simply use the "-" sign in front of the word you want to exclude.

   Example Search: internet marketing -advertising

   3. *Site Specific Search:*
   Often, you want to search a specific website for content that matches a
   certain phrase.  Even if the site doesn’t support a built-in search
   feature, you can use Google to search the site for your term. Simply use
   the "site:somesite.com" modifier.

   Example: "internet marketing" site:www.smallbusinesshub.com

   4. *Similar Words and Synonyms:*
   Let’s say you want to include a word in your search, but want to include
   results that contain similar words or synonyms.  To do this, use the "~" in
   front of the word.

   Example: "internet marketing" ~professional

   5. *Specific Document Types:*
   If you’re looking to find results that are of a specific type, you can
   use the modifier "filetype:".  For example, you might want to find only
   PowerPoint presentations related to internet marketing.

   Example: "internet marketing" filetype:ppt

   6. *This OR That:*
   By default, when you do a search, Google will include all the terms
   specified in the search.  If you are looking for any one of one or more
   terms to match, then you can use the OR operator.  (Note: The OR has to be

   Example: internet marketing OR advertising

   7. *Phone Listing:*
   Let’s say someone calls you on your mobile number and you don’t know who
   it is.  If all you have is a phone number, you can look it up on Google
   using the phonebook feature.

   Example: phonebook:617-555-1212 (note: the provided number does not work
   – you’ll have to use a real number to get any results).

   8. *Area Code Lookup:*
   If all you need to do is to look-up the area code for a phone number,
   just enter the 3-digit area code and Google will tell you where it’s from.

   Example: 617

   9. *Numeric Ranges:*
   This is a rarely used, but highly useful tip.  Let’s say you want to
   find results that contain any of a range of numbers.  You can do this by
   using the X..Y modifier (in case this is hard to read, what’s between the X
   and Y are two periods.)  This type of search is useful for years (as shown
   below), prices, or anywhere where you want to provide a series of numbers.

   Example: president 1940..1950

   10. *Stock (Ticker Symbol):*
   Just enter a valid ticker symbol as your search term and Google will
   give you the current financials and a quick thumb-nail chart for the stock.

   Example: GOOG

   11. *Calculator:*
   The next time you need to do a quick calculation, instead of bringing up
   the Calculator applet, you can just type your expression in to Google.

   Example: 48512 * 1.02

   12. *Word Definitions:*
   If you need to quickly look up the definition of a word or phrase,
   simply use the "define:" command.

   Example: define:plethora

or et nice explanations with "images" here :-)
