How to get more accurate results with Google?

Google is almost used by everyone in today’s digital world for one or another thing. Be it to learn or just surf the internet google plays an important role. But what if I say you can use google more than what you do every day? What if I told you that you can get specific results for your search? Yes, it is possible using google dorks.



What are Google Dorks?

Google dorks are nothing but simple google operators that are used to get more refined search results. To know better let us understand how the Google search engine works.

Google Search is a fully-automated search engine that uses software known as web crawlers that explore the web regularly to find pages to add to download Google's index (Google’s Database). There are three steps in this Crawling, Indexing, and Saving. Firstly, crawlers crawl all over the internet and download media. It then analyzes them and saves them in its database called google index. When a user like you and me search for anything it gives nearly accurate results.


So to get more related information from this search engine we use google operators and now let us see what are they and how to use them.
