Google Search Tips and Tricks - Presentation

Do you know what all Google Search can do for you? It can become your currency converter, calculator, weather forecaster and can even show you the flight status in just a matter of seconds. Yes, indeed but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Google Search gives us umpteen ways to lookout what we want. All we need to know is how to uncover those features. These are not hidden features which have been deliberately obscured by Google. It is just that most people don't realize that there is so much power behind a humble white web page.

I have been using Google Search since more than 13 years and realized that many people see me as a person who is quite good at searching things on the web. It had though become my second nature to be able to dig the Internet using the tricks I had learnt over the time.

My friend +Channdeep Singh suggested me to take out some time to organize and present some of the tips, that I use most often, to benefit others to search effectively. The slide show below is a result of the constant nagging by him. Thanks Channdeep! This deck was also used as a part of career sessions organized by the team at (a job listing blog run by a volunteer group I am part of).

Did you find it helpful or was it something you already knew? Do drop a comment below.

Note: This is definitely not an exhaustive list of the nice features of Google Search. Let me know if you want me to add any of the rest with a nice example. I would be glad to update the presentation.
