Google supports several advanced alternate query search operators. These are special query words that the Google search engine recognizes and then responds to accordingly. A discussion of advanced search operators is found at http://www.google.com/help/operators.html.

The advanced alternate query search operators are:

  • cache: Shows the version of the web page residing in Google’s cache;
  • link: Lists the web pages that include links to the specified web page;
  • related: Lists web pages that are similar to the specified web page;
  • info: Displays certain information Google has about that web page;
  • stock: The query terms are interpreted as stock ticker symbols, and the search engine returns a web page displaying stock information;
  • site: The search is restricted to sites within the specified domain;
  • allintitle: The search is restricted to those web pages containing all of the query words in the title;
  • intitle: The search is restricted to those web pages containing one or more of the query words in the title;
  • allinurl: The search is restricted to those web pages containing all of the query words in the URL;
  • inurl: The search is restricted to those web pages containing one or more of the query words in the URL.
