Small Tip: Use a Tilde in Google searches to also search for synonyms

Credit: Guardian UK
This is a great tip from If you use the 'tilde' search operator with a word when searching Google, it will also search for synonyms of that word.

Perhaps examples will better illustrate my point.

Search for "~easy computer tips" and it will search for other keywords as well, like "simple computer tips". Thus you can broaden your search rather than searching those specific keywords. It will sure get you something that you might not have stumbled upon right away.

How does it work for you? Let me know in the comments.
