Useful Operator for Google Search


See how “Visited pages” is in black text in the graphic to the left? Just found it tonight. It performs searches with only pages you have previously visited. Ever read a story about Apple, Twitter or Facebook but forgot how you found it? This feature, or is it a function, should enable you to track down what you are looking for rather quickly.

It looks like you must perform a search on Google to see this. The Advanced Search page doesn’t have what I was looking for. Go to Google and perform a search. Then look for something like “All results” to see the “Visited pages” option if it’s hidden. You might need to be logged in to your Google Account too.

Why Should I Follow People on Delicious and Create a Network?

Below is a screen shot of the recent bookmarks people in my Delicious network have created.


There are more than sixty people I’ve added to my Delicious network. The real power comes when you follow people that are active in areas that interest you. Some examples might be Technology, Apple, Twitter, Social Media, Social Networking, Business, you get the idea. These people bring some of the best content from their areas of interest to their Delicious account. This effectively filters out all the content that is not worth saving and distributing. If you were a user that saved crappy links people would probably unfollow and think less of you. Most people will only save good or great content. By following smart and active people on Delicious, you get a great tool that is much like a search engine. There are also two other features that are useful to Delicious. The first is Fresh Bookmarks and the other is Hotlist. Consider joining Delicious.

Yes I am aware that there are rumors that Yahoo will shut down Delicious. You can get value out of Delicious today if you sign up. Getting value now, is more important than getting value in 5 years.
