Google has revolutionised the way we find and digest information.
Gone are the days when you would be laughed at by your peers for saying that "Michael J Fox’s middle name is Andrew" and you having only the word of a guy, who knows a guy who knows a guy as your source.
Now you can simply Google it. Search Michael J Fox and you're presented with a plethora of results relating to the actor -- and of course -- the fact that his middle name is Andrew and nothing beginning with J at all.
The blog below shows a few handy tips and tricks to mine those harder to find nuggets of information. Whether you're struggling to find a potential client's contact information or you need to find a PDF relating to the housing market in Timbuktu, you'll go from Google novice to Google pro in no time.
Faster and more accurate searches aren’t the only benefit to becoming a Google power user. Google also has a few hidden functions you can unlock with the right search query, including calculations and conversions, stock quotes and sports scores, and film showings and flight statuses. With the right search, you can get immediate results telling you the current weather and today’s sunrise and sunset times, or quickly look up the definition of a word and get a translation into one of dozens of available languages. With the time you save as a Google power user, you’ll even be able to fit in a game of Atari Breakout on Google Images. Just follow the steps below to find out how!
