I swear someone could start a company dedicated to teaching people how to actually use Google. It amazes me sometimes that people don't know how to do this but at the same time I think this is a great way to educate people about how sometimes the tools you use are not being used efficiently.

Client (watching over my shoulder): "HOW DID YOU DO THAT!??!?!?!?!"

Me: "What?"

Client: "I've never seen a query like that before."

Me: "Did you work for Google at one point?"

Client: "Yeah, but I've never seen that."

Similar query to what I wrote:

related:cooking.com baking "pumpkin roll" -paprika 20m..30m

Another great example my friend pointed out that is much more simple:

    Those queries are nice to know but 90% just typing in what you wanna know is enough. Google is pretty smart in converting my thoughts to results

    @musician that’s true until you can’t find what you are looking for or google decides to use some weird SEO algorithm. I find it especially useful for programming or looking up business data and case studies for pre-project research
