Top 9 Advanced Google Search Operators Cheat Sheet Amy

Google’s homepage includes a button labeled “I’m Feeling Lucky”. This feature originally allowed users to type in their search query, click the button and be taken directly to the first result, bypassing the search results page. With the 2010 announcement of Google Instant, an automatic feature that immediately displays relevant results as users are typing in their query, the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button disappears, requiring that users opt-out of Instant results through search settings in order to keep using the “I’m Feeling Lucky” functionality. In 2012, “I’m Feeling Lucky” was changed to serve as an advertisement for Google services; users hover their computer mouse over the button, it spins and shows an emotion (“I’m Feeling Puzzled” or “I’m Feeling Trendy”, for instance), and, when clicked, takes users to a Google service related to that emotion.
