Quick tips to search the web like an expert - How to use Google

Tip 24:

Search for Specific Facts

When you're looking for hard facts, Google might be able to help. Google will always return a list of sites that match your specific query, but if you phrase your query correctly - and are searching for a fact that Google has pre-identified - you can get the precise information you need at the top of the search results page.

This includes fact-based information, such as birthdates, birthplaces, population, and so on. All you have to do is enter a query that states the fact you want to know. For example:

To find the population of San Francisco, enter population san francisco.

To find where Mark Twain was born, enter birthplace mark twain.

To find when President Bill Clinton was born, enter birthday bill clinton.

To find when Raymond Chandler died, enter die raymond chandler.

To find who is the president of Germany, enter president germany.

The answers to these questions are displayed at the top of your search results page. You get the precise answer to your question, according to the referenced website. Click the associated link to learn more from this source.
