Google Verbatim tool


Recommended Posts

Google Verbatim tool is another (and perhaps little known) way to improve your Google queries.


Here's what Google says about it:


Verbatim tool


With the Verbatim tool, you can search using the exact keywords you typed.

The searches you make on Google are usually improved to help minimize your time spent searching and get you the information you really want. Here are some of the improvements Google makes:

  • suggest spelling corrections and alternative spellings
  • personalize your search by using information such as sites you’ve visited before
  • include synonyms of your search terms to find related results
  • find results that match similar terms to those in your query
  • search for words with the same stem, like "running" when you search for [ run ]
But, for the occasions when you want to search for very specific words, you can use the Verbatim tool so that Google searches using the exact words you entered. Here's how:
  • Click More search tools on the left side of the search results page.
  • Click Verbatim.
  • Type your search terms into the search box and type Enter.
