BANGALORE: Google, the popular search engine has become one of the fastest growing companies of all time and diversified into so many sectors. Users can search for the information they desire through the use of keywords and operators. In March 2007, Google was noted as the most visited website with over 528 million visits for the month. Since then they haven’t looked back.

People use Google on a daily basis but there are so many hidden features and useful hacks in the Google verse. Now let’s take a look at five features that are useful and unknown to many.

Useful Hacks You Didn’t Know About: In order to enhance the searching capability certain search techniques are being used. If users want to get accurate information, here are few features to improve the search technique in the Google. For a search you want specifically from a certain site, just type your term and then ‘site’ with the desired outlet.

If you type in the word ‘related’ then the website, it will return results that include similar type of websites. You can also use ‘define’ in the same way and Google will give you a dictionary term for the word, its usage in speech, and more. Sometimes a memory lapse leaves you searching for the right word. Instead of guessing, put an asterisk in the vacant spot and have the search engine figure it out for you. 

Type in ‘set timer’ for followed by a number of minutes, or a specific hour you’d like an alert, and Google will graciously comply with an obnoxious beeping once the moment has arrived. Just make sure the volume’s on.  These additional search tools are incredibly useful and streamline the whole search process.
