    These searches are even going too far. You rarely need to use operators to make a proper search.

    Even without thinking about operators, people are still incredibly stupid at googling.

    Such as that they ask a question, as if they are talking to a person, instead of googling the words that are relevant.

    The only operator you need at lot, is quotes.

    Other than that, people just need to learn to put the words that are relevant for their search. They don’t need to be in order. They don’t need to be in sentences.

    You don’t need to know, that you can search for “define:angry”
    Instead just search for “angry definition” or “definition angry”
    That should be common sense, and will get you all the same results.

    Why search for “author:green photosynthesis”? It’s a great option, but people can just as well just search for the author name and subject.

    These tips are excellent, but people are much more stupid at searching that that.

    I think what most people need to first learn is, don’t write a sentence (unless you are searching for a specific sentence of course), but write all the words that are relevant, in whatever order.

    Google can also give you constants by the way.

    Try earth mass.

    You can even use this in calculations.

    earth mass * 2

    or

    earth mass * G

    (G for gravitational constant)
