    Thumbs up Google Tips

    Google Tips

    1. Google is a package tracker. Type a FedEx or UPS package number (just the digits); when you click Search, Google offers a link to its tracking information.

    ?Google is a calculator. Type in an equation ("32+2345*3-234=").

    ?Google is a units-of-measurement converter. Type "teaspoons in a gallon," for example, or "centimeters in a foot."

    2. Download and install the Google toolbar. Not only does it put the Google search box into your browser full-time, but it also blocks pop-up ads and fills in forms for you. For Windows at http://toolbar.google.com . (Ad blocking, form-filling and Google's search box are already built into the Apple's Web browser, Safari.)

    3.
    Phrase your question in the form of an answer. So instead of typing, "What is the average rainfall in the Amazon basin?", you might get better results by typing "The average rainfall in the Amazon basin is."

    4.
    This is an old one, but very important: Put quotes around phrases that must be searched together. If you put quotes around "electric curtains," Google won't waste your time finding one set of Web pages containing the word "electric" and another set containing the word "curtains."

    5.
    Similarly, put a hyphen right before any word you want screened out. If you're looking up dolphins, for example, you'll have to wade through a million Miami Dolphins pages unless you search for "dolphins -Miami."
