Googling is one of the most important skills for every developer.
Let me show you how to get better at Googling.

Let’s start!​

1. Use quotes to force an exact-match search:​

"what is javascript"

2. AND operator will return only results related to both terms:​

html AND css
google-and.png

3. You can use the OR operator to get the results related to one of the search terms​

(javascript OR python) free course

4. - operator will exclude results that contain a term or phrase:​

javascript -css

5. You can use the (*) wildcards as placeholders, which will be replaced by any word or phrase.​

"how to start * in 6 months"

6. Search inside a single website:​

site:freecodecamp.org
google-site.png

7. You can also use a very useful feature that helps to find a specific file type.​

filetype:pdf learn css
google-filetype.png

8. Search for a range of numbers:​

ecmascript 2016..2018

9. Use the before operator to return only results before a given date​

You must provide year-month-day dates or only a year. For example:
javascript before:2020
google-before.png

10. Use the after operator to return only results after a given date​

You must provide year-month-day dates or only a year. For example:
web development after:2020
google-after.png

To see the option to sort your results by date, you first need to filter the results by a time period.

On the Google Search results page, click Tools → Any time and select a time period, e.g. Past 24 hours.

Click Sorted by relevance and select Sorted by date.
