10 Best and Cool Google Search Tricks

1.Search for exact phrase: 
Normally our terms and Google searches by default, not have to be exactly the phrase (in the same order), but we can search for exact phrases by typing the word in quotes. Example: "Computer Shops"

2. Let me Google that for you:
LMGTFY or Let Me Google That for You is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek service made for those of us who are too lazy to use Google. Upon entering a search query, instead of results, you get a link that you can then mail to your lazy recipient. Clicking on the link launches the actual search: thus, in this perigrinatory manner, you have Googled it for them. All they have to do is click the link.

3. Google Pac-man:
A treasure-trove of fun Google tricks won’t be complete without mentioning Google’s Pac-Man doodle. On May 22, 2010, the 30th anniversary of the classic game, people around the world woke up to a search engine sporting an actually playable mini-version of Pac-Man. 

And naturally, hundreds of millions of people spent hours playing the game, basically slowing down productivity to a halt

4.Search by title-page: 
If you want to bring up the term in the title of the page use the allintitle command. Example: allintitle: Trickslove

5. Google Barrel Roll:
A Fun Google trick that is still accessible today, the barrel roll means exactly as it says: make Google do a barrel roll. Simply type “Do a barrel roll” into the search bar and Google dutifully obeys. Warning: This Especially Fun Google Trick is known to make babies cry and grown men squeal with delight.

6. Google Sphere:
Google Sphere turns every little element you commonly see on Google’s homepage into a swirling “sphere.” It’s pretty cool, but it’s no longer implemented on Google. To see how it once worked, just visit the link below.

7. Atari Breakout:
Actually this is my Favourite Trick, Just got o Google Images, Search for the Term "atari breakout" and see the magic. you will be amazed and will be wasting some time too....

8.Search by date:
- & As_qdr = d5: to filter results of the last five days.
- & As_qdr = w5: for filtering result of the last five weeks.
- & As_qdr = m5: to filter results of the last five months.
- & As_qdr = y5: to filter results of the last five years.

Though now Google already provide this facility by default.

9. Google Gravity:
This is Earth-bound physics “infused” into Google’s interface: with “gravity,” the visual elements you commonly find on the interface, such as the search bar, the “I’m feeing lucky” button, and everything else fall down like a stack of bricks on the bottom of the browser.

You can even “pick up” and “throw” the search results at the “walls” or just simply mess with them. This is no longer implemented on Google, but you can still see how it worked through this link.

7. The disappearing “OO” :
This is not really a Google fun trick per se, but you can wow your clueless friend with this little “magic.” Click anywhere on the white space of the Dark Arts page (URL in linked title above), then pretend to rub your two fingers on the two OO’s on the Google logo for 2 to 3 seconds, and the O’s will vanish.

To bring it back, do the same thing: Click anywhere again and the OO’s will reappear, after which you will be redirected to the real Google

They are interesting and Cool Google tricks to use an advanced search on Google quickly. They can be very useful.
