Google Search Tips

Google can be useful for searching the websites of government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community groups and companies to find press releases, reports, etc.

Here are a few commands to focus your search. You can also use the Google Advanced search if you can't remember the commands.

  • Keyword search in the webpage title only: allintitle:human wildlife conflict
  • Phrase search using quotation marks: "human wildlife conflict"
  • Restrict search to a specific website or domain (e.g. fires in the Amazon): site:wwf.panda.org [or ibama.gov.br, gov.br, gc.ca, inpa.gov.br]
  • File Format search (e.g. pdf documents only): filetype:pdf
