Google uses sophisticated text-matching techniques to find pages that are both important and relevant to your search.
In addition to providing easy access to billions of web pages, Google has many special features to help you find exactly what you are seeking.
By default, Google only returns pages that include all of your search terms. There is no need to include "and" between terms. You can search the web or search this web site.
When Google analyzes a page, it looks at what those pages linking to that page have to say about it. Google also assigns higher relevance to pages in which your query terms appear near each other.
With SafeSearch turned on, web sites and web pages containing "adult" content are blocked from search results. Google strives to keep this filtering info as current and comprehensive as possible by continual Web crawling and by incorporating user suggestions.
Google Image Search is the most comprehensive image search on the web. Google analyzes the text on the page adjacent to the image and the image caption as well as other factors to determine the image content.
Install the Google Toolbar, taking the power of Google with you anywhere on the Web. When the Google Toolbar is Installed, it will automatically appear with the Internet Explorer toolbar, increasing your ability to quickly find information.
