Google’s search engine is always your top choice when searching for information online. However, not everyone knows, Google supports us with advanced search methods full of magic. The following Google searches help you find the desired results on the internet.

1. Find the correct phrase

When we want to search for a phrase, instead of typing it into Google search, let’s put the phrase in the “double apostrophe.” The search results seem to give better results than we don’t put the phrase in the “double apostrophe.”

2. Magnetic exclusion

When we need to search for “Take good photos with iPhone” but we want to exclude pages of ads, this can be done easily by adding a sign – with the word we need to remove after this minus sign.
