Most of us use the Google search engine by entering the keywords in the space left by the home page of this well-known search engine. We type in a few words and hit "Enter". It's that easy.
For some time now, Google has also allowed advanced searches using commands. Below we will show you 10 of the most useful ones:
Search by location:
We will use the command "loc:" followed by a place to show us the results that exist in that location that match a certain search term (in this case "guitars").
Search by date:
This query will return all results indexed in google after February 1, 2020 that contain the keyword "coronavirus".
The commands would have this structure:
Search term after:YYYY-MM-DD
We can also use the "before" command.
Search term before:YYYY-MM-DD
Indexed results before a certain date will be displayed here.
Search term after:AAAA before:AAAA
With these commands the query will return the results indexed between two given dates.
Search for synonyms
We will write the equivalence symbol "~" or also called "virgulilla" followed by a word so that Google will return all kinds of synonyms for the word we enter below.
Searching for indexed pages of a website in Google
With this command we will be able to see all the web pages indexed in the Google servers of a specific website.

Using this command, Google will show us the copy of our website that you have cached on your servers.
