Today, we've added a new section in our forum dedicated to Google Search Tips & Tricks.  We'll be sharing info that will help you make the most out of your life with Google Search and don't be shy about sharing your own tips!

Here's one to kick us off:

Google Doodles are best known for commemorating famous holidays and events, but did you know that Google also celebrates your birthday? All you need to do is fill out your birthday on your Google+ profile. Then, when you're signed into Google Search on your special day, you'll see a colorful Google Doodle wishing you a happy birthday. This is just one Googley way of making your search experience more playful! To learn how to edit your Google+ profile, check out the following link: http://goo.gl/XxMnD7

You don't even need to join Google+ to see a Birthday Doodle — the birthday in your Google Account profile is enough!

You can see how many pages are on a website by doing this search - site:yoursite.com (yoursite does need to be replaced with your domain)

Flu season is upon us but you don't have to succumb to the sniffles and sweats! Battle a bout -- or better yet -- learn how to avoid catching the vicious virus with a simple search. To find info about preventions, symptoms, and remedies, enter "flu" into the search box and uncover a laundry list of expert summaries and articles. 

Be well!

Countdown Timer:

Go to Google.com and type in "set timer for 5 minutes", you can choose any time you want from 1 second up to a 999 hours.

hi all,
my personal tipp:
if a (useless) site is overwhelming the results to a search-query, simply exclude this site from the results by adding the searchparam:
-site:example.com (example.com replaced with the unwanted site)
to the query

regards Seitenmeister

p.s.: and i'm really missing the "old" + searchparam, always brilliant results. no good alternative for this lost implemented so far.
