How to do an Advanced Search:

What are search operators and why should you use them?  Search operators are words, signs,  and symbols that can be added to searches to help narrow down the results. Don’t worry there is no need to memorize every operator, because you can always reference them here, but they can also be a very powerful tool to use when you are using SearchBySite

$ Find prices

# Find popular hashtags for trending topics

- You can use a dash/hyphen before a word or site, it will exclude sites with that word from the results. This is helpful for words with multiple meanings, like Jaguar the brand of cars and jaguar the animal.
Examples: jaguars fast -car or gazelles -site:wikipedia.org
" When you use quotes and perform a search, the search results will only include pages that have the same words in the same order as the ones you put inside the quotes.  You should only use this if you’re trying to find  an exact word or phrase, otherwise you’ll exclude many helpful results by mistake, but used correctly it can be very powerful.
Example: "search by site"
* Add an asterisk as a placeholder for anything unknown or wildcard terms. .
Example: "a * saved is a * earned"
.. Separate numbers by two periods without spaces to see results that contain numbers in a range.
Example: smart phone $150..$350

Google  has eliminated the plus + operator and expanded the capabilities of the quotation marks (” ”) operator. Furthermore, you can use this operator to search for an exact phrase,.  You can now add quotation marks around a single word to tell Google to match that word exactly. Therefore, in the past you would have searched for  Instagram + photos  you should now search for  Instagram “photos” .
