    5 Google Search Engine Tips To Help You Find Information Faster - This tells Google...

    This tells Google that you want to use their advanced search option. If it's in lower case, Google will just treat it like any other word.

    5. Try Using The Synonym Search Option

    For many phrases there are often alternative words that can be used to explain the same thing. Sometimes it's hard to know which particular word to use to get the best results. Other times you either may not be aware of the alternative word, or just can't think of it at the time.

    For example, instead of using the term 'used', you may have typed in 'secondhand'. A trick you can use is to tell Google to look for synonyms of the words you specify, in addition to the main keyword. To do this, enter a tilde '~' just before a word like this:

    ~secondhand

    In this case, Google returned results containing the words: 'secondhand' and 'used'. This can be a useful trick to use if you can't think of the right words to type in. You can perform a synonym search on multiple words at he same time.
