Google Search Operators

There was a time where I used to be able to keep some facts and figures in my head. Years of keyword research coupled with trying to remember names of friend’s kids has whittled that out of me.

Now I’m left having to write small blog entries like this to keep placeholders for info I know I’ll need someday. Today it’s those Google search operators that help you learn a bit more about your site and what Google knows about it.

Here’s the blurb:

Google supports several advanced operators, which are query words that have special meaning to Google. Typically these operators modify the search in some way, or even tell Google to do a totally different type of search. For instance, "link:" is a special operator, and the query [link:www.google.com] doesn’t do a normal search but instead finds all web pages that have links to www.google.com.
