Wildcards and hitting the ten word limit

There is a limit to the size of the query. No more than ten terms may be present in the search box. These terms include both keywords and syntaxes.

Google has a hard limit of ten on keywords and syntaxes - but a wildcard does not count as one of the ten.

If you are looking for something which is greater than ten words - get rid of the words which will not assist in the search first.

Take this Clint Eastwood line for which you want to search for the movie it was in:

My friend, there are two types of people in this world - those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.

Twenty one words - far too many. First get rid of the stop words - my, there, are, two, of, in, this, those, with, and,those, who. Then get rid of the duplicate dig. That leaves - friend types people world loaded guns dig.

Entering these seven words presents the answer right in position one of the SERPs. Even though I missed the exact quote. It should have read - There are two types of people in this world my friend, those with loaded guns and those that dig. You, you dig.

Click on the webpage. You cannot see the phrase. Hit Control F to find it within the large page. You go directly to where Sergio Leone's The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is discussed. By the way, it doesn't say in the article, but Clint ( Blondie ) says it to Eli Wallach ( Tuco ).

Google Archives

Web pages change frequently. Many are updated with more current information while others are simply discarded.

At least for the recent past, Google maintains a " cache " of the pre-modification or discontinued webpages. Simply click on the " Cached " version of the page if you go to a website and either can no longer find the page, or at least not the version that you remembered being there. Google can provide this historic document on request.

There is another website which stores an archive of the internet. It is called The Wayback Machine. It stores over ten billion webpages which date back to 1996. It's url is . Visit the Wayback Machine for a trip back through the history of the Web.

The Wayback Machine also is a repository for texts, audios and moving images.
