Lightbulb OBSCURE GOOGLE Search Tricks

here are some few search tricks in google . well i am sure that some of them u may know and some not or may be all of them ... but i think its still better to post it on...

1.TIME (starting with the simple one)
well i u have to set the right time u have just goto type
time & cities place.
u will get to know the time (simple one many can check out their desktop time itself)

2.Track Flight Status
Enter the airline and flight number into the Google search box and get back the arrival and departure times right inside Google's search results

3.Remove affiliate links from product searches
When you're sick of seeing duplicate product search results from the likes of eBay, Bizrate, Pricerunner, and Shopping.com, clear 'em out by stacking up the -site:ebay.com -site:bizrate.com -site:shopping.com operator


4.Converter:
Google's powerful built-in converter calculator can help you out whether you're cooking dinner, traveling abroad, or building a PC.How many seconds there are in a year (seconds in a year) or how many euros there are to five dollars (5 USD in Euro). For the geekier set, bits in kilobytes (155473 bytes in kilobytes) and numbers in hex or binary (19 in binary) are also pretty useful.

5.search musics and files
this one is one of the most advanced search tricks and will take u to the parent directory of the website giving u the ost correct details...
the search is something like this
if i want to search some music in mp3 or ,p4 or avi or ne format then
on the google bar type
intitle"indexof"(mp3|mp4|avi) pocket.of.sunshine
this will search in the index pages the next which i have intitled in the brakcet is the typs of format to search for
and finally comes the name of the music file i.e pocket of sunshine
remeber to specify dots after each word to enhance the search results.

similary u can type with different formats and stlyes to get the desired results...

well this wat i know about the search tricks i would appreciate if ne one would like to append it more or modify it...
