Search engines are a big part of any REALTORS daily online marketing or research tools. What some Agents do not realize is that there are a bunch of advanced command line attributes you can use when searching on Google that may help you out a great deal. This was taken from a Google help page and tried to replace some references with more appropriate examples.
Phrase search (” “)
By putting double quotes around a set of words, you are telling Google to consider the exact words in that exact order without any change. Google already uses the order and the fact that the words are together as a very strong signal and will stray from it only for a good reason, so quotes are usually unnecessary. By insisting on phrase search you might be missing good results accidentally. For example, a search for [ “Montclair Real Estate” ] (with quotes) will miss the pages that refer to Montclair NJ Real Estate.
Search within a specific website (site:)
Google allows you to specify that your search results must come from a given website. For example, the query [ condos site:nytimes.com ] will return pages about Condos but only from nytimes.com. The simpler queries [ Condos nytimes.com ] or [ Condos New York Times ] will usually be just as good, though they might return results from other sites that mention the New York Times. More »
