Google, the world's most popular search engine, has a number of hidden features that add even more power, from reverse image searching to solving math problems. This talk will focus on bringing you some of the best ones for use in research, or just to have a little fun. Examples include:

  • site specific searching using site:url.
  • using -word to exclude word from search.
  • finding out an actor's Bacon number.
  • doing a barrel roll.

This talk is open to everyone. The target audience would include those who use Google daily and are curious about getting more out of it.
