This self explanatory operator searches for a given search term OR an equivalent term. For example: “wildcard ssl” OR “san ssl”
– (and +)
The – operator removes pages that mention a given term from search results. For example, if you were searching for information about Manchester, but didn’t want your results to be polluted by information about the city’s red clothed football team, you could search for the following: Manchester -united
Using + forces Google to return common words that might ordinarily be discarded, for example: Peanut Butter +and Jam
Adding a tilde to a search word tells Google that you want it to bring back synonyms for the term as well. For example, entering “~set” will bring back results that include words like “configure”, “collection” and “change” which are all synonyms of “set”.
