Google Operators For better Searching

define: -
This google operator will find definitions for a certain term or word over the Internet. Very useful when you come across a strange word when writing a post. I use this as a google dictionary. example : (define computer)

info: -
The google info operator will list the sets of information that Google has from a specific website (i.e. info:www.rakeshroy02.blogspot.com)

site: -
This google operator can be used to see the number of indexed pages on your site (i.e.site:www.rakeshroy02.blogspot.com). Alternative it can also be used to search for information inside a specific site or class of sites.

link: -
This google link operator allows you to find backlinks pointing to your site. Unfortunately the count is not updated frequently and not all backlinks are shown

allinurl: -
Using this Google operator will limit the search to results that contain the desired keywords on the URL structure. (i.e. allinurl:Hackingtips)

fileformat: -
Useful Google operator for finding specific file formats. Sometimes you know that the information you are looking for is likely to be contained in a PDF document or on a PowerPoint presentation, for instance. (i.e. “fileformat:.pdf Java ” will search for PDF documents that contain the terms "java")
