Useful Tools for Searching in Google

If you need to find something specific using Google it may help by using some of the search operators that are available.  For example, using quotation marks around a word or words will search for that specific string of words. This is especially useful if you are searching for a song, poem or book, but you only know some of the words.

Google has put together some useful guides to help you get the best from your searching:
