Have you ever found yourself looking for a certain filetype? This little search tecnique may come in handy for the student who is trying to find a report, or a business person looking for a certain document. I have personally used this to try and find pdf files or photoshop (psd) files.
Let’s say we want to see some business plans other people have put together. Enter the following search into Google:
small business plan filetype:pdf
If you wanted to search for Word Docs you would do the same but with a different filetype:
small business plan filetype:doc
The filetype is interchangeable and you can pretty much search for any filetype and if it is on the web Google will sniff it out for you. Enjoy and share!
