While performing our Google searches, there are many search operators that are able to filter the results according to a wide range of criteria in order to reach the results we want easily. These operators are used for operations such as text search, content control, technical SEO, as well as to catch configuration gaps on websites. Let's examine these operators together that will increase your search speed and your ability to reach the results you want.
" "(Double quotes)
With the double quote operator, you can search the word block you want to search in one piece without distinction. For example, if we search for cabitas yazılım without double quotes, we may see results that are cabitas or just yazılım. However, if we want the results in which the searched item passes as a whole, we need to search as "cabitas yazılım".
If we want to see results that contain any of the word groups we want to search, we need to use the OR operator. For example, when we search for cabitas OR yazılım, we will see results that include cabitas or software. Same query cabitas | yazılım We can also do it in form.
We may want to see results that do not contain some words from the queries we searched for. In this case, we are using the - (dash) operator. For example, if we want to see results that contain cabitas but not yazılım, we need to search cabitas -yazılım.
It acts as a wildcard character and indicates any word or phrase. We can use this operator to check results where we want to see unremembered or possible matches. For example, when we want to search for a song whose lyrics we remember, we can use this operator instead of the word we don't remember. As you can see in our example, google brings out possible results in a way that any word can come where we put the operator.
If we want to perform our search criteria only on a specific site, the site operator is used. For example, if we want to see the results of the word software only on www.cabitas.com, we need to search yazılım site: www.cabitas.com. As seen in the example, the results come only through www.cabitas.com. You can also search only sites with certain extensions in the form of site: gov.
During the search, we can use all operators together when necessary. When we want to do such a search, queries can get complicated and priority situations can cause us to get wrong results. Parentheses are used to control and group the queries we write. As seen in the example, except for the www.cabitas.com site, such a query can be written when we want to see the results that contain cabitas yazılım as a block and any of the çözüm or program words in them.
The filetype operator is used when we want to see results from a specific file type on the topics we searched for. For example, when we want to see the results of the software with pdf file type, we can search the yazılım filetype: pdf.
The related operator is used when we want to search for other sites similar or related to a site. For example, to search for sites associated with youtube.com, we need to type a query such as related: www.youtube.com.
It brings the last cached version of the site by Google. For example, cache: www.cabitas.com can be used.
It is the query operator used to reach the results with the searched word in the url content. For example, when we want to see the results with software in the url section, we can write a query in the form of inurl: yazılım.
It functions the same as the inurl operator, except that it returns results containing all the words after the operator. The inurl operator is based on only one word. For example, a search can be made in the form of allinrul: yazılım çözümleri. In such a search, inurl is based only on the url in which the word yazılım occurs, while allinurl tries to return results that contain all the words typed in the url part.
It allows us to access results with a specific word in the page title. For example, when we want to see the results with cabitas in the title, we can make a query as intitle: cabitas.
It functions the same as the intitle operator, except that it returns results containing all the words specified in the query.
Returns results that match the searched word in the page content. For example, a query like intext: cabitas can be written.
It functions the same as the intext operator, except that it works for all words in the query.
It is used when we want to write queries that include the word we want in the link text.
It functions the same as the inanchor operator, except that it works for all words in the query.
Used to find blog posts by a specific author. It works for google blog searches, not standard google searches.
It functions the same as the inpostauthor operator, but operates on all words entered in the query, not on a single word.
There is also a development search page where you can view the search criteria together and perform action. You can also use this page for your search operations. For this, you can click the advanced search link on the homepage.
As another way, after any search, you can follow the shortcut menu Settings> Advanced search.
