Make the most of Google

Make The Most Of Google
There is more to the Google search engine than meets the eye. Here is why so many think Google is the best.

In this article I will cover several things. But lets start with the basics.
Google.com is one of the biggest and most-known search engines there are.<br />
But did you know google has its own domain for over 120 different countries?

To see exactly what countries look at all the flags here!


I'll assume you know all about Google's Image search and there is also a News search that works in excatly the same way.
There are many more things to do if you click "more »" such as their Directory and Special Searches.

Of particular interest is the "Alerts" where you can request email updates on news or the web.

Google can also be used as an online dictionary. To find the definition of a word, you simply type "define:your_word" into google and click GO. You will then be presented with the definitions of YOUR_WORD from several websites.

In a similar way, you can use google to see how many sites are linking to any one site.
Simply type "link:http://www.kaziaz.com"; into the google search bar and click go. This will now show you all the sites that link to http://www.kaziaz.com. This is a great tool if you are working on the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) of your site!

You can also search for "related" sites. If you have spent ages finding a site in the google results and want more sites like it without having to spend mors time searching, simply type "related:http://www.kaziaz.com"; into the google search bar and click GO.

All these quick tips can save hours of your precious time.
