Google now processes over 40,000 search queries every second, 3.5 Billion search queries every single day and generates a whopping 1.2 Trillion searches every year (1 trillion = One thousand Billion). We use Google to search for information in our day to day life and it turns out to be the biggest search-giant ever.Source: http://internetlivestats.com
Hope you are doing dope with the paytm trick that we have shared a few days ago – Paytm transfer to bank trick.
Assuming all the statistics are approximate, Google turns out to be the heart and soul of every multi-billion industry, which means that you need your company to be on Google to get exposure and generate leads. But ever wondered there exists some amazing tricks that Google has kept hidden from us..? Yup. That’s true, Google is hiding some of the cool
These are some of the amazing tricks that we never knew Google could do. Tune-in to muster up all the ideas and hacks of what Google is hiding from the ancient times.
10) The old mighty
Google was established in the year 1998 and is very much advanced now as compared to the date it was established. Google keeps on updating its algorithm regularly, which makes more complex to get ranked. But, what if I say that you can have a look at “the old Google” now..? Nah! I ain’t joking. Yes, you heard it right. What if I say so..?
Now don’t assume that I am gonna invent a time machine to take you back to the old Google. You would probably have a smile on your face uttering that this dude has lost his mind. But you’re wrong mate. That is damn true, you can see the old google now too.
If you search “google in 1998”, you can see the Google in retro form. Damn, that is the old Google. If you have your own site, then don’t search for it in the old version, because you’ll never find it. Why..? Because you are a time traveller now, and you are seeing the old Google which was established in the year 1998.
9) Your searches are being eaten up by Google
Ever wondered why that fine looking button, “I’m feeling Lucky” is given aside google search..? Nah! Many of us didn’t have a look at that nor we know what that does. Well, it does nothing but magic. Yup, it does magic and makes Google more creative.
Type “zerg rush” on google and hit “I’m Feeling Lucky” button (search it, I’ll wait though). On searching, you can see snowfall happening on your screen. But those won’t be snow, they are small balls which are in red and yellow colour. They’ll start eating up your search results if they are left undone. You can click multiple times on it to kill them, ultimately saving all your search results. But if you fail to do so, you’ll lose all your results.
Nah, was just kidding mate. They’ll reappear once when you clear the game. At last, you can see that those balls are forming GG shape. That looks quite astounding.
8) Google sphere
Type “google sphere” and hit “I’m feeling lucky” button. You can see the webpage rotating in its own axis as you keep on moving your mouse all over the screen. The page rotates according to your pointer’s location.
A nice bunch of algorithm are developed by the Google team to display that structure. OOPS!!. Don’t play with that sphere for more time. A straight warning to all the guys out there who try this stuff. I played that for 3 continuous minutes without even blinking my eyes and nearly got hallucinated. So try on your own.
7) Make Google fall on your wish
That sounds very intimidating right..? Damn, it does sound intimidating, anyway who would dare to make Google fall and that too on their wish?? Nah. I am not bluffing to go to Google and destroy their servers and make them fall for us. 😉
Search “google gravity” and hit “I’m feeling lucky”. After the web-page gets loaded up, you can enjoy seeing Google fall in front of your eyes. You can tap any element, drag an element to the other and even crush an element to the other element. You can experiment all by yourself and you will find that interesting. I enjoyed playing this(believing that you will too) for a period of time and it was a funny experiment.
6) Break bricks on Google
You are not a prisoner to break stones. Are you..? No? Okay then. Well, how do you break bricks on Google then..? Chillax, you are not told to break real bricks. In fact, you are being told to break bricks to kill your free time. I enjoy playing this game to kill my time. It reminds me of a game that I used to play on my Blackberry QWERTY keypad phone. Blackberry has named it as “Brick Breaker” but Google has indexed it as “atari breakout”.
So you know what you have to do right..? Yeah, you’ve to hit “I’m feeling lucky” button. See, you are a genius. But what about the search query..? Oh yes, that’s right. You’ve to search for “atari breakout” and then hit ‘I’m feeling lucky”. You are a genius indeed.
Now you see the magic. After searching the keyword, a ball popups on the screen and a slider is given to you. That slider is being synchronised by your pointer device. As you move your mouse the slider also moves according to the pointer. You have to save the ball and break all the bricks like a pro.
5) The unbiased coin
Now that you’ve become a genius, I don’t have to repeat the same words, again and again, to search a keyword and hit I’m feeling lucky. Anyway, let’s say for this time. Google “flip a coin”, a coin pops up. If you hit flip, the coin flips and shows you a result whether its head or a tail.
You can use this trick with your friends whenever you think there is a need
You know that you have your own responsibility, so take the safety measures and don’t be a nerd by taking your expensive laptop to the fields. As it might get damaged by someone in the field. You can toss by using your mobile too.
4) Wanna play a game..?
You can play online games on the net and offline games too by downloading them to your device. But what if I say that you can also play games by just giving a search. You don’t have to visit online gaming portal nor you have to download a game. The game just opens up on your search results and you can comfortably play in.
Search “play pacman” and hit “I’m feeling lucky”, you’ll be directly taken to the Google’s game. You can play Pacman without even downloading nor even visiting the online portal.
Some of the alternatives to Pacman are – Snake, TIC TAC TOE, T-Rex and much more. Search “play snake”, “play tic-tac-toe”, “play trex” and hit “I’m feeling lucky” to play the respective game. Don’t just play, enjoy them. T-rex is the game which forces you to keep on playing. But, don’t play much, because you’ll get hallucinated in a short span of time if you play those games for more time. It grabs all your attention and makes you feel sleepy. Don’t play this game while driving.
We all misspell words right? Who doesn’t..? Well, bots don’t misspell words, but we ain’t bots though. So mistakes happen and there is nothing to regret about it. Ever wondered what Google does when you mistype a word..?
It replaces the wrong word with the right ones. That’s pretty much common about search engines and most of us also know about it. But what if Google replaces the right words with the right word again..? Understand that. Replacing of the right word with the right word again, which means that you didn’t type a wrong word, yet your word is being replaced by the right word. Yup, that’s possible in some of the cases.
Search “recursion” and you can see that your word is being replaced by the same word again. Don’t get too tensed, you didn’t do any mistake nor the search engine did. But why did the search results showed up by replacing the same word again eh..? The answer is pretty much simple. If you have studied computer science and are familiar with the “Recursion operator” then you might also know, the operator which calls itself is called a recursion operator. Similarly, the recursion keyword is calling itself as compared to the algorithms developed by Google.
2) Do a barrel roll and tilt search
Search “do a barrel roll”, the results will be displayed by rolling the webpage to 360 degrees. It feels like you are rotating your device all over your palm. Yet it looks quite fascinating.
Similarly, if you google “askew”, your results will be tilted and the webpage will be in a tilted manner. There’s nothing to worry about. Just go back to bring back the right order of page again.
1) Playing animal sounds
This tops the list because it deserves to. If you are a parent and you’ve got a kid of 2-3 year old to look after, then this hack is the best for you. You don’t have to buy child phones to keep your kid entertained. And it could be a great experiment with respect to your child’s observation too.
If you google “animal sounds”, you are being displayed animal pictures and if you tap on them, they play a sound. The sound is with respect to the animal that you tapped in. Like, if you tap on a lion’s image, the lion roars. If you tap on an elephant’s image, it trumpets. Tap on a giraffe’s image, it hums. Tapping on a snake’s image, it hisses.
So that is the best hack for the parents who have small kids, they can entertain their child by playing these sounds. But don’t be too lazy to not to play by yourself and give out your phones to your kid. Resulting, they may damage your phone.
