Weight your Google Queries With a Sinker Search

Did you know that you can weight Google searches by repeating a search term?

Try searching for farm animals cows chickens pigs and then search for farm animals cows chickens pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs pigs. You’ll see the second search is much more pig-oriented, though its results more generally ascertain to farming and farm animals.

Google’s query limit is 32 words. Sinker Search takes a query and a word to be emphasized in the search – the “sinker” that weights your results a certain way- and builds a Google search containing the query once and the sinker term as many times it will fit inside Google’s query limit. You also have the option to do a “half-sink,” where the sinker term is used half as often. This is useful when your sinker term is completely overwhelming your search results.

When you click the “Sink that search” button, your query will open in a new tab.

This is the part of the query you want the most emphasized. It can be a multi-word single term (like “modern art”) but it must be a single term.
