Nice collection.. I also tried to find some of techniques.
By putting double quotes around a set of words, you are telling Google to consider the exact words in that exact order without any change. Google already uses the order and the fact that the words are together as a very strong signal and will stray from it only for a good reason, so quotes are usually unnecessary. By insisting on phrase search you might be missing good results accidentally. For example, a search for
  • [ "Alexander Bell" ] (with quotes) will miss the pages that refer to Alexander G. Bell.

Before you search, make a plan!
Putting together a search is a three-step process.
1. Identify your concepts
2. Make a list of search terms for each concept
3. Specify the logical relationships among your search terms
There are also optional things you can do to focus a search. This is known as field searching, and is covered later on in this tutorial.

* Google is a full-text search engine , which uses computerized to index millions, sometimes billions, of pages, allowing for much narrower searches than searchable subject index, which searches only the titles and descriptions of sites, and doesn't search individual pages

* Google is case-insensitive . If you search for Three, tHRee, THREE, or even THREe, you get the same results.

* Singular is different from plural . Searches for apple and apples turn up different pages

* The order of words matters . Google considers the first word most important, the second word next, and so on

* Google ignores most little words , including include "I," "where," "how," "the," "of," "an," "for," "from," "how," 'it," "in," and "is,“. Google ignores most punctuation , except apostrophes, hyphens, and quote marks

* Google returns pages that match your search terms exactly

This techniques are indeed needful to search the exact term quickly.

Most people use a search engine by simply typing a few words into the query box and then scrolling through whatever comes up. Sometimes their choice of words ends up narrowing the search unduly and causing them not to find what they're looking for. More often the end result of the search is a haystack of off-target web pages that must be combed through. We can do better than that, using this techniques.
