Google search is the largest search engine on the web. We know that how useful Google has been for us over the years. People believe that if Google can not find something on the internet, then that thing might not even exist. We have always felt the accuracy and usefulness of Google and can not even imagine web without Google. We also think that we are very familiar with Google but this might not be the fact. Google has unimaginable reach over the web and has many known and unknown services. Google search is the most used service offered by Google and even the world best and most used search engine has few less known useful abilities. here are few of them.
Few of Google Search abilities that are useful but less known
I am feeling lucky
We do always see “I am feeling lucky” button below the search box on the Google search page. Many people click the button but many even do not. “I am feeling lucky” is a button used to directly go to the first result from the search for a keyword without going through the search result page. This function is not available nowadays due to Google instant search. Google instant search directly takes us to result as we type the keyword. However the I am feeling lucky function can be used by disabling Google Instant search.
Google trends is a very good facility that shows the keywords that are being searched on Google in a country. Anyone can easily put (/trends) after the Google home page for their nation and find the latest top search queries in that nation.
Google.org Flu Trends
very few people know that Google has social service wing that takes care of charities by Google. Google.org is the Google charity home page. Google.org operates an interesting service that shows the flu prone areas in on the world map. These areas are shown based on the keyword searched that are related to flu from any geographical area.
Google Politics and elections
Google also has a service that shows position of political parties and candidates in countries where elections are taking place or are going to take place in near future.
We have see an designer Google logo on the Google home page and search results. This is called Google Doodle. This logo represents the significance of that day on clicking on that logo a search for the most relative keyword about the significance of that day is made.
Google Time is also an interesting service , we just need to type time in the search box and Google shows the current time for your area as the first result.
Google conversion is very useful service. We should try it and we will find it very useful. We can type something relevant that has to be converted and Google converts it for us. For example if we search for “ 100 Indian rupees equal US dollars” , Google will show us the results, we can do it for many measurements.
Google has a powerful calculator that can calculate nearly anything just try it by typing anything like “ 13689629202 multiplied by 1324567” and just imagine that Google shows us the results.
Apart from all this Google has many interesting capabilities that can only be tried out by searching for. I tell you and you should believe that there will be very few things that Google may not be able to do. So now we understand that being the most popular search engine is not easy.
