Search like a pro: Google search tricks

Google Search has become an everyday tool for finding information for just about anyone who uses the Internet. In this article, I’ll describe examples of how to use google search engine more effectively.


google-site search indexed pages

By entering “site: + website name”, you can find out how many pages of a website are indexed by Google. This is often used by SEO professionals to research competitor websites. You can also see how many sections of your website have been indexed. But this is more used to study competitors. To get information about your website, it is better to use the Google Search console tool, because it will contain much more detailed information about the indexed pages of your website.

Search for the latest information

With Google Search, you can choose a specific time period, so you can find the latest published information on the topic you’re interested in.
