We all know how to search on Google. But not many of us know the tips and tricks that can make Google searches better and in easier on Google.

Having an alternative to something as useful and vast as Google can help us anytime, anywhere. We bring you eight alternative ways to search the most searched engine:

Google WDYL

Google's 'What Do You Love' service is a one-stop-shop destination for all its other services. It collates data from all its services such as YouTube, Translate, Images and News and to you at a single place and in a single click.

Go mobile

Having a hard time reading searching on your mobile? Screen is not large enough to accommodate Google's advertisements, sidebars, images, et al.? Type Google.com/m in your browser to access a cleaner version of the site, minus all its 'unnecessary' frills.

Google vs Bing

Wish you could look at the two most prominent search engines side-by-side saving you considerable amount of time and energy? Yes you can do it.

You can check your search results on both Bing and Google at the same time on www.bing-vs-google.com. On the same page you will get the information displayed on both the sites.

Google shell

This alternative way to search Google will, for once, remind you of your HTML lessons. Goosh.org is a Google-interface that behaves similarly to a unix shell. Written by Stefan Grothkopp, Goosh calls itself 'the unofficial Google shell.' Users can type commands such as 'video' or 'news' to obtain results from a particular Google service. Results can be accessed by clicking on their respective links or their numbers can be typed in Goosh. To see more results type 'more'.

Voice search

Google chrome has the option of a voice search. When you will open the Google search page you will see a microphone in the search bar. Click this microphone and just say what you are looking for.
