Twitter Gets Google-Style Power Searches

Deep-searching Google is still a little-known secret

Despite Google’s advanced search builder, there are still more powerful features than most people appreciate, for example the following search combines three elements:

seo|sem “offers * tip”

What that does is search for people who have used either the phrase seo or sem, the pipe “|” meaning “one OR the other”. It also looks for the words “offers and tip” in that order with any old word between them.

Here’s an even more secret, secret: Twitter’s new search tool uses these advanced search functions too!

Try it for yourself now by searching with this phrase on Twitter:

seo|sem “offers * tip”

(On Twitter you can only use single word phrases either side of the pipe.)

Now play with it and create your own power searches!
