Many of us have suffered a GSM (Google Search Migraine) due to changing search parameters and now there’s a way to ease the pain. Tuck away your aspirin, the article Google Search Parameters in 2012 gives us a useful run down on Google search ‘switches’ for command line queries.

The author stated the following:

“Knowing the parameters Google uses in its search is not only important for SEO geeks. It allows you to use shortcuts and play with the Google filters.”

“Google keeps adding new parameters to its URL to keep pace with the increasing complexity of the search product, the Google interface and the integration of verticals. While most parameters are known, some aren’t.”

This was followed up with a list of search parameter switches broke down in the following categories; Normal, Advanced, Area (Language, Country), Advanced tools, Other Factors and Unclear Parameters.

Each parameter offers more detail, ensuring that the user can generate more productive results. The other factors category is useful because it tells us how to turn off filters that Google automatically adds. You see, if you don’t set the stage yourself, than Google will do it according to information they’ve obtained from your history.

Google is a very versatile search engine with a vast amount of ways to define results. The convenience of knowing advanced search operators will stimulate and enhance productivity and personal use. The availability of the search parameter switches will make Google search migraines a thing of the past.
