Detecting Google Search Layers with Advanced Search Operators
The way Google presents search results has always been and always will be a bit of an enigma to all of us. Every now and then, however, a snippet of information slips through the cracks giving us a chance to take a look at its search anatomy. In the example below, we can see a search for “greater than 100 years old”, or “100.. years old“. There are four exceptions in this particular example where the operator did not work as expected:
- News Results
- PDF Documents
- Movie Database
This is just a preliminary test and we’ll continue our investigation to get more clarity, especially around Wikipedia entries.
