Welcome to the Understanding Google Searches Video Tutorial.
This tutorial is provided as a reference and a guide to using the advanced search operators that Google provides.
Most of the operators have a Google Search box pre-filled so you can see example results.
•Google is case insensitive, meaning that 'gOoGle' is the same as 'GOOGLE' and 'google'
•Search operators are case sensitive, meaning that 'OR' is not the same as 'or'
•Without using any operators, Google will show pages with all words first, trying to find the words in order
•Google excludes common words (known as stop words) like 'I', 'the', 'a' etc
•Pay attention to operators that must be used alone
