Google advanced search lets you cut through internet clutter – and there’s no shortage of clutter on the internet – to zero in on exactly the search results you are looking for.
Google advanced search has applications for web users of all stripes, and especially for ecommerce entrepreneurs: Simple google search tricks make it easier to identify opportunities, scope out competitors, and understand how Google (and Google users) sees your store.
After all, you don’t always want Google to give you 5,010,371 pages to choose from. Sometimes you want to know something precise. For example, which websites are linking to your store. Or how easy it is to find products in your store. Or what your competitors are selling.
Now, not all advanced Google searches are relevant for ecommerce. For example, Google Search’s nifty “timer” feature – which opens up a timer if you type something like “15 minutes timer” – probably isn’t going to help you scale. But there are a number of Google advanced searches that will turn Google Search into your personal market research lab.
This post will go over the most useful advanced Google search features, and look at how you can use them to optimize your ecommerce business.
