1.Search for exact phrase: 

Normally our terms and Google searches by default, not have to be exactly the phrase (in the same order), but we can search for exact phrases by typing the word in quotes. Example: "Computer Shops"

 2. Let me Google that for you:

LMGTFY or Let Me Google That for You is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek service made for those of us who are too lazy to use Google. Upon entering a search query, instead of results, you get a link that you can then mail to your lazy recipient. Clicking on the link launches the actual search: thus, in this perigrinatory manner, you have Googled it for them. All they have to do is click the link.

 3. Google Pac-man:

A treasure-trove of fun Google tricks won’t be complete without mentioning Google’s Pac-Man doodle. On May 22, 2010, the 30th anniversary of the classic game, people around the world woke up to a search engine sporting an actually playable mini-version of Pac-Man.
