You can access the cached version for any page that has been saved by Google with this: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://example.com/ Change http://example.com/ to any URL.

Just wanted to add a more comprehensive answer about language parameters in Google Search. There are 4 language-related options. 1. Web interface language: hl= Example: www.google.com/search?q=vilnius&hl=lt 2. Pages in specified language: lr=lang_ Example: www.google.com/search?q=vilnius&lr=lang_lt 3. Pages originating from specified country: ...

This is a really silly situation. The answer really only deserves a single line: I had safe search turned on. Somehow I took a screenshot of that, and didn't notice. (In the 0.0001% chance somebody needs to know, you can just turn safe search off by clicking the gear at the top right of the page (under your account picture)).

While there is no official statement on the matter, from what I've been able to gather by trial and error, this frustrating feature seems to exist to try and push users into searches which yield more sponsored results, thus it'll probably never get a toggle. Fortunately the frustration can be reduced with an amazing extension called uBlock Origin. In ...

Simplest method without scripts or any other troublesome stuff. Tried and tested in Firefox and Internet Explorer. Reload/refresh the page (F5) (because Step 2 will work only if you haven't already clicked the link). "Right-click and hold" on some empty space away from the link. Move your mouse pointer (with right button still depressed) over the link. ...

Don't know what it stands for, but the tbm URL parameter appears to indicate the filter used. For example: Applications: tbm=app Blogs: tbm=blg Books: tbm=bks Discussions: tbm=dsc Images: tbm=isch News: tbm=nws Patents: tbm=pts Places: tbm=plcs Recipes: tbm=rcp Shopping: tbm=shop Video: tbm=vid So, tbm=dsc is "Discussions".

Google Search can return the matches of some simple regular expressions. For example, the search query "(gray|red) (wolf|fox)" appears to be equivalent to ("gray wolf" OR "red fox" OR "red wolf" OR "gray fox") You can see the output of this search query here.

After a while I found a solution; it’s possible to use: http://www.google.com/webhp?#q=yourquery&btnI=I It will always send you to the first result, but sometimes it will half render google.com before redirecting you. Adding to this, my question was for using it in a Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey script and after studying how Google always redirected you ...

I switched to Bing.com because of it. They have very convenient options as "Narrow by language" and "Narrow by region" right above search results. Also you can go to settings and set search results only in English and it really works as opposed to Google "fake" settings. As for your question about Google I didn't find any working solution. All the other ...

This is a known bug that showed up past year. Google is aware of it as you can read on google groups: We're aware that this is an issue and I'll post an update as soon as I have one. In the meantime, thanks for your patience. The only solution you have for now is a browser script/extension.

According to GitHub's robots.txt, the only section Google is allowed to index is the master branch of a project, so your account will only be indexed if you have one of those in your project (and it isn't private). If you have a master branch then it could just be that Google hasn't gotten to you yet. You can try submitting your URL which might speed ...

Someone over in the Google Product Forums found this lovely bit of CSS if you have a CSS injection plugin: .s + div, .exp-outline { display: none; }
