If you are like the majority of internet users, Google is probably your go-to search engine. But chances are that you are only using Google in its simplest form, typing a few words and changing your search query until you get the results that you want.

While that method works, it is very limited. Google is a powerful tool, and to fully unleash that power you’ll need to know some tips and tricks. On Google Inside Search there is a great list of 50 ways to use Google that will have you searching like a pro. We have included a short list of my favourite search tricks that may not be obvious to the average Google user.
