Most users don't know that they can fine-tune their search in a number of interesting ways, or that they can use Google to find pictures and news articles and compact discs, or that they can use the Google search box to perform mathematical calculations and conversions, or that Google can function as a spell checker or dictionary.
Google contains a massive amount of search power that goes untapped by virtually all Google users and that's a shame because there's far more search firepower to be had than simply typing a keyword into the Google search box and pressing enter.
Beyond the original word-search capability, Google Search provides more than 22 special features, such as: synonyms; weather forecasts; time zones; stock quotes; maps; earthquake data; movie showtimes; airports; home listings; sports scores, and so on.
Following are just a few of the things you can do with Google searches - all of which and more is explained in depth in this book.
