Informit offers tips to improve one's usage of the Google suite of search resources – read, inwardly digest and reduce the number of merely inefficient random queries reaching the Ministry.

Use the '~' operator to search for synonyms; the example given is to use '~elderly' to search for 'elderly', 'senior', 'older', 'aged', etc. This can be combined with the better-known '-' operator: '~term -term' will find synonyms of the term whilst excluding the specific search term itself.
