    There are some google search queries which help you to gain insight of its search data. It can be very useful in SEO tool.

    1. site:www.yourdomain.com
    shows how many url of the domain are indexed by google.

    2. allinurl:keyword1 keyword2
    shows no of url which have both keyword1 and keyword 2
    eg. if you want to find out no of url with keyword 'shopping' in digitalpoint use
    allinurl:https://forums.digitalpoint.com shopping

    3. allintitle:keyword1 keyword2
    shows pages with keyword1 and keyword2 in the page title

    4. allinanchor:keyword1 keyword2
    shows pages with keyword1 and keyword2 in the anchor

    5. related:www.yourdomain.com
    shows pages with google thinks are related to yourdomain - i.e its compititors in most cases.

    6. site:www.yourdomain.com keyword1
    gives most important page in yourdomain for keyword1

    These google queries help you get to the insight of not only your website but also any other website. With them you can know what types of links your competitors are making and where they are making exactly.
    There are much more google queries then these 6 if you wanna share more here, that will be great to the readers.

    This is what we called footprints in Google. An effective way to provide specific information to the users.

    I use site: and link: keys often. They are most useful to check your website size and to see who is linking to you.

    Good queries. But I can't find one of my favorite queries in your list:
    + and -
    Keyword1 +keyword2 -> Will return ONLY results where BOTH of the keywords are in the content.
    Keyword1 -Keyword2 -> Will return the results where the keyword2 is NOT in the content. This is very useful sometimes!!!!!!! :)
