Having Fun With Google

June 25, 2006

Thanks to Google Blogoscoped for the pdf of 55 Ways to Have Fun With Google. Number 16 is Google Q&A, which says that some answers are built directly into the Google.com web search. "It answers certain questions right above the search result, so there’s no need for you to visit a web page – the answers themselves are extracted from web pages." Examples of some questions: When was Star Wars released? and Who wrote The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? Number 21 is Google Search Tips, which suggest that you can have more fun searching Google by becoming a better searcher. Tips include using the tilda before a word to search for synonyms of a search term and searching phrases by either enclosing them in double quotations or using a hypen between words.
