TECH TIP
More Google Goodness
Better & different search options


It's not news that Google gets more people to the information they want on the Web than anyone else. That's why we make it easy for you to do a Google search from the myEarthLink start page or any page on the EarthLink website. But you may not be taking full advantage of all Google offers.

For example, did you know that you can:

  • type define:keyword to get dictionary definitions in your results
  • type stock symbols, like ELNK, to get current stock quotes
  • type an asterisk between two numbers to multiply them: 45 * 39
  • put quotes around your keywords to find an exact phrase: "to be or not to be"
  • type keyword(s) and then site: followed by a URL to search on one website only
  • type an address to find maps & directions
  • type weather and a zip code or city to get weather info
