#4 Search for Exact Phrases:
How do you often search? By using a phrase or name. Does this search fetch relevant results? No, because when we use a phrase, Google combines search items for different words in a phrase. This is where we can use quote marks around a phrase or name to search something specific. This kind of search is helpful in less relevant results.:
Example: “american revolution”
#5. Search for related sites:
How would you find related sites or similar sites of any particular domain? Try this related:websitename, and Google will fetch results of same sites from the domain

Did you ever clicked on a link on google search result to find that the visited site is offline or down for some reason? Still if you want to check something on the site, you can do it through google cache.
