Top 10 Google Search Tips and Tricks

Google tricks

1. “Tab be or not tab be”!

You have probably noticed already that there are a number of tabs sat snuggly under the Google search box. You may already be using these frequently, but if not you might want to consider making your life a whole lot easier.

If you are searching for an image, click on the ‘Image’ tab, want to find a recent news story? Click on the ‘News tab…you get the idea.  Using these combined with some of our following cheats and BOOM, you’ll be the ruler of all things Google!

2. And/Or Searches

This one is a fairly simple tool to search for multiple items such as “Hotel AND New York”,  “Pizza OR Pasta” etc. You will notice how we have capitalised the AND/OR, that’s important. Make sure you use upper case for these, so Google recognises them as a specific command rather than just a part of your search term.

3. Search Using an “Exact Phrase”

If you have an exact search term in mind and don’t wish to deviate from that at all, you can place quote marks around your search. For instance:

“tandem space hopper” 

An actual thing, we promise! Google will show you all of the results containing that exact phrase so it can really help narrow down your search so you can be bouncing around the garden with your best bud in no time!

4. Keep it Simple

Now we can totally get on board with this hack! Google is insanely clever so it can find huge amounts of information based on the simplest of search terms.

For instance if you need to find a local plumber to fix a leaky tap, all you have to do is type “Plumbers nearby” (“” quote marks are just there to show you what to type, you don’t need to use these unless you are searching for a specific term, we’ll cover this later on).

Google will be able to suss out your location (as long as you have enabled the location services) and will spew out all manner of plumbers local to you. Easy peasy! No more leaky tap!


Ok, so now you’ve got your head wrapped around those, let’s move on to some more advanced searches…

5. +/- Searches

This is another way you can hone in on specific search terms or exclude words you don’t want to include.

The minus (-) command can come in pretty handy in certain situations. For instance, you might be searching for different types of leaf-tailed geckos (could happen), and Google keeps trying to send you to sites about the Satanic leaf-tailed gecko. Damn that pesky google! So, in that case, you’d type:

leaf tailed gecko -satanic

It will eliminate any results using the work “Satanic”, so you are left with a host of sites featuring all manner of other leaf-tailed geckos but no Satan worshipping ones! Clever huh!

The plus (+) sign does the exact opposite, well duh! It will only show you results that do include that word, so for instance:

leaf tailed gecko +satanic

Throws up an alarming number of pages where this little chap appears!

Tip – always make sure there is a space before the + or – sign and not after.

6. Search a Specific Site

Did you know you can restrict your search to a single website with the use of a colon? This super handy search cheat allows you to pinpoint your results to that of one single website. It works like this:

Google cheats and tricks

Every result will be pulled from that one site alone. Very helpful if you are trying to pin down a certain news story or topic from a particular source.

Tip – remember you don’t need to worry about using capital letters in any of your searches. Unlike your English Professor, Google doesn’t mind the odd grammar slip when it comes to those pesky proper nouns!

7. Asterisk *

Sometimes known as the asterisk wildcard, this is one cheat that is helpful when you are searching for a term, it might be a popular phrase, book title or even song lyric, but you are not sure of the full title or are missing one or two of the words.

Placing an Asterisk * where the missing word is will let Google know that it could be any word so the search results will reflect that and hopefully bring up what you want.

Try it out with a song title like this:

Papa don’t *

So many possibilities, luckily clever old Google knew I was talking about the popular Madonna hit from the ’80s. Give it a try!

8. Search for Multiple Terms at Once

This will cut your search time drastically by giving you the ability to search two phrases or terms at once. This can come in handy when you want to search for something like buying a house in a particular area, something that may show up under multiple different search terms.

Here’s how you use it:

“best places to buy a house in the uk” OR “where is the cheapest place to live in the uk”

Notice we’ve used the quote marks “” trick? This will ensure you get results based on exactly the two terms you’ve specified.

Tip – the “OR” needs to be in UPPER CASE to work it’s magic!


So that’s the serious cheats out the way, these final two Google tricks are just for fun!

9. Barrel Roll

Type “do a barrel roll” into your Google search bar and sit back and enjoy the show!

10. Askew

Try typing in “askew” into google, and it will tilt the whole page of results. What’s not to love about that!

Hey, those were even more fun than we thought! Maybe we’ll do another post about the all the fun Google tricks you can do!

So now we know that Google does even more wonderful things than just provide us with answers to all of life’s burning questions. Why not try out some of these hacks the next time you are searching for goofy pictures of a crazy horse rather than pages and pages of pictures of the famous old Native American dude! (Try crazy horse +animal and hit images)

Is it possible to get free spins on the Starburst slot from NetEnt?


Free spins on Starburst? Are you serious? Starburst is the most popular NetEnt slot in the world for one reason only, and it’s not gameplay. It’s because Starburst is the main slot for which casinos give away promotional free spins.

Starburst free spins

You can get free spins with no deposit, free spins on deposit, free spins with no wagering, and even free spins with no deposit and no wagering on Starburst. It is the most commonly seen slot in every casino promotion around the world.

Starburst slot gameplay and release date

While Starburst doesn’t excite many players, it has to be recognised that it’s actually quite an innovative slot in terms of its game mechanic. The both ways pays, the solid reel of wilds that gives you a respin, and the low variance grinding pay style put it in a class of its own. Since releasing Starburst on the 12th of November 2013, NetEnt have tried to recreate its success a few times with similar low variance slots like Stickers and CopyCats. None of these have really captured the same vibe and none have become such perennial favourites.

Berryburst, a Starburst clone

The release of Berryburst in 2018 is the nearest NetEnt have come to mimicking the gameplay style of their smash hit slot, but it’s never going to exactly be a replacement.

Play this slot for free!

Free Spins No Deposit

Free spins with no deposit required are one of the most requested deals for players of online slots games. We recommend the website for anyone looking to play free online slots.

How to find the best free spins no deposit?

To find the best deals you are almost forced to use websites such as and – these sites round up various current offers and display them in a searchable index specific to gambling and casino. This is a great way to find what you are looking for, but be aware that not all websites are equal and some will share unlicensed and unreputable brands in return for cash. Check to make sure the offers being promoted are from licensed and regulated casinos – it will make you life a lot easier in the long run!

Where else to look?

It can be hard to find the best offers, because search engines like Google and do not always offer access to the best results for your searches.

We think that once you have found a reputable site it is probably worth checking their older listings for other offers, and also consider signing up to mailers for their latest promos. The Casinomeister forum is also one of the very best places for anyone with an interest in online casinos to visit.  Having been in existence since 1998 this is a casino and gambling hub that almost every player eventually comes across. A great resource!

Check out the rest of this site.

We provide a little advice on finding no deposit bonus offers and resources for playing online pokies. Check them out and see if you find them helpful. Enjoy playing slots and casino games responsibly!

Genesis Casino NEW From the people behind Casino Cruise

genesis casino

Genesis casino is brand new and from the same people as Casino Cruise and Spinit. It promises to be a fantastic option for players in the UK and beyind, with full UK Gambling Commission licencing in place and a load of amazing slots and games from the likes of NetEnt, Microgaming and others.

We have often wondered why more online casinos don’t offer these kinds of big staggered free spins bonuses. We love logging in every day to find a free spins bonus waiting for us. It keeps the excitment of signing up to somewhere new alive just a little longer 😀

We have only given it a brief look, but we like what we see so far. Why not check out the Genesis casino review to see if this is the kind of place you would like to play at.

If you love this casino, you might want to try some of the others from the same brand. You can find reviews and exclusive bonuses for these on the website which has been around since 2012 and is well known for offering special signup bonuses for the latest online casinos.


Online Slots Cheats

Can we cheat with these top tips for online casinos? Well quite possibly, but not without knowing the best way to apply our knowledge to our best advantage. That means learning as much as possible about bonuses and promotions that might tip the odds a little in our favour, as unlikely as that seems.

Many people are looking for exactly the same advantage, and when the casinos catch on they catch on QUICK! This has seen numerous past opportunites get shut down, including the famous Wishmaster slot bonus trick and more.

You can try and get new no deposit casino offers from various places online. So why not start there and attempt some risk free wins?

Cheats for online slots – do they exist?

Do cheats for online slots really exist, or are they a myth? That’s what we’re all wondering.

The truth is that there are cheats for everything in life, pretty much. You just have to know where to find them. Recent online slots exploits include banking collectables using bonus cash and then pausing the game to come back to it later when you’re playing with REAL MONEY after completing any wagering requirements somewhere else. Sneaky huh? We will share full details of how to perform this sneaky exploit with subscribers.

There are also various stake tricks you can use to switch stake at the right time and cash in with a big money bet after hours of playing for pocket change.

The good news – it IS POSSIBLE to play with the odds in your favour. The bad news – it’s not as easy as it sounds…
