My apologies ahead of time but I won't be researching how to become a Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yahoo or AOL search ninja anytime soon. I am sure this will disappoint all 6 of you.

Lets Keep this real simple...

  • Search Weather to see the weather in your location or add a city name, like Weather Seattle, to find weather for a certain place.
  • Put Define in front of any word to see its definition.
  • Enter a Math equation like 6+135482.
  • Perform Unit Conversions by entering something like 3 dollars in euros.
  • Search Sports for the name of your favorite team to see a schedule, game scores and more.
  • Other quick searches include the name of a celebrity, location, movie, or song.

If you want to level up your skills a little more...

  • Add double quotes ("") around a phrase you are looking up to ensure all search results include the exact phrase.
  • Put a minus sign (-) in front of a word if you want to exclude any results that include it.
  • Search only a specific website like 'site:nameofwebsite.com searchterm'. Example site:espn.com lakers will pull only results about the Los Angeles Lakers from espn.com.
