Cool Google Search Tips

By Michael Hall

1) Punctuation symbols can help refine your search!

For example, putting a ($) before a value helps you search for prices easier.  Or place a hashtag (#) in front of a trending topic to narrow your search.

2) Google has a timer!

Simply search "Set Time (amount of time, say 20 seconds)", and it immediately starts a countdown.

3) Check the weather!

To find the weather for your specific area just enter "weather" followed by a city or zipcode.

4) Define words you don't know.

Type "define" followed by your desired word.

5)Check sports scores and ranking.

All you gotta do is search the name of the sports team in the search bar.  Go Ducks!
