Google Cheatsheet

Ok, I admit it! I am using Google a lot. Not only the search engine, but also other great stuff like GMail, Google Reader, Google Maps, Google Desktop, etc.

As a lifehacker I learned a couple of extra shortcuts to make my life easier and more efficient.


Here is a cheatsheet of interesting shortcuts:

Sample queries and what Google responds with…

Sample queries Google responses pages with…
bert lifehack both words: bert and lifehack
Hawaii OR Bali 1 word: Hawaii or Bali
+I love both words: I & love (force Google not to ignore I)
lifehack -computer the word lifehack but NOT the word computer
“Enjoy every day” the exact phrase: Enjoy every day
iPod €100..€500 iPods between €100 and €500
part-time the words part-time, part time, or parttime
life ~coach the words Life & both coach & its synonyms

Have fun using them and saving time.
