(Video) Search tools on Google: A faster way to search

Get more out of your Google searches by using the Search tools. This video tutorial will show you how.


Welcome to a Tara-Tamiko tutorial. Today we are going to look at the various Google search tools that are available.

These tools are simple, but effective so you can fine tune your search, in other words,get a more relevant search results. So here I’ve chosen to search for “How to choose a theme for your blog”.

Fine tune your search

If we go here and click on “Search tool,” we’ll see a variety of options We can select the country. But more importantly, we can select the time.

What I like to do is set up a custom range, just so I can see what results I can find during the last couple of months. So here, I’ll select “1st January” to let’s say “28th February”. And here you can see your search results.

And what you can do even more, is select “Sort by date”, but I think you will find that to get more accurate search results, you might want to sort it by relevance.

Under “All results,” you will find an option called “Verbatim” and this will return search results that match the exact words that you have searched for.

There will be times when you will need this option, but there will be times when you won’t as it may limit your search results But we can go through that in a future tutorial

And the final search tool we will look at today is “Reading level”.

If I go ahead and select reading level and the time frame to last month. You will see the research results broken down to Basic, Intermediate and Advanced reading level.
