So I am super irritated that everytime I do a search for something and all I get back while using Google is ads for pages and pages. So here are a few tricks us computer geeks use.

THIS ONLY WORKS FOR GOOGLE!! MAINLY CUZ THAT'Z ALL I USE.

Searching for a file with a certain extension?

Use ext:pdf MaxPC so when you get the results they will be any file with the extension of .pdf pertaining to MaxPC.

Want to find a certain site? or links to certain sites?

Use site:MaximumPC.com or site:facebook.com or site:gov for government site links or site:pk will return links to sites in Pakistan.

How about certain words or phrases?

Use intitle:MaximumPC Forums to retrieve links and info for MaximumPC Forums. You can also use allintitle:MaximumPC to get links and articles that have MaximumPC in the title of the article. You could also use inurl:MaximumPC for links that have MaximumPC in the URL.

How about finding articles and links for sites and info relating to something?

Use related:MaximumPC to get back info related to MaximumPC and add the .com to the end to get sites related to MaximumPC.com.

Want to find pages cached with Google?

Use cache:www.maximumpc.com to retrieve pages the Google has cached.

You could also use these together.

For example site:maximumpc.com intitle:How to do searches without the stupid ads & find what U need

That will return links to sites of maximumpc.com that have the title as above and related links.

Good luck and don't send angry emails to Google ranting and raving about the ads like I did lol. Google needs money to stay afloat.
