What is a Google Search Operator?
Are you tired of reading through numerous search results but still not finding what you want? To make life easier, search engines have a list of search operators that filter the results you see on the search engine results page (SERP).
A search operator, or a search parameter, is a string of characters used in a search query to narrow the focus of the search. Search operators, luckily, are not exclusive to Google. Major search engines like Bing, Yahoo and Yandex each has its own search operators that enable users to look for specific results. These tricks are not only convenient for regular users, but also valuable for search specialists to uncover issues that otherwise are hidden in websites.
