  • Bing Changes Web Search Interface | Completely Removes Advanced Search Option
    11/25/2013 - 11:09

    One of the most popular "hidden" Google search feature we discuss in our live Cybersleuth Investigative Research MCLE Seminars is the ability to use the tilde (~) in a Google search to indicate that you want Google to return results for the keyterm you've entered AND any synonyms that Google automatically recognizes.
