Google commands become the most popular Web integration glue

Tech Tips by Donald Burleson

Google has evolved into a full-blown command language and you can employ advanced techniques to quickly access anything on the web, from the current weather to finding a good movie.  See my notes on using Google to find information fast:

Here are some fast Google shortcuts to find-out what's happening where you live.

General zip code information

Entering your zip code into Google now gives you a fast interface into Google Maps, a tool to facilitate travel.


Where is it? Location by name and zip code

The docs note that you can add the name of a business to quickly find it:
  Google has added the convenience of US street address and phone number lookup to the information we provide through our search box.

You'll see publicly listed phone numbers and addresses at the top of results pages for searches that contain specific kinds of keywords.

To find listings for a US residence, type any of the following combinations into the Google search box:

  • first name (or first initial), last name, city (state is optional)
  • first name (or first initial), last name, state
  • first name (or first initial), last name, area code
  • first name (or first initial), last name, zip code
  • phone number, including area code
  • last name, city, state
  • last name, zip code


Weather by zip code

The docs note that you just add the word "weather" to see your local forecast:

To see weather conditions and a four-day forecast for a particular U.S. location, type "weather," followed by the location.

Usually a city name will be enough, but you may also want to include a state or zipcode.

For example, to see Palo Alto weather, you could search for "weather palo alto, ca" or "weather palo alto 94301."
