What is a Google Dork?

Google Dorks are nothing but simple search operators that are used to refine our search.

Okay so let’s pretend you’re wanting to search the world wide web for ebooks on the topic of ‘cooking’, most people would search google for “Cooking eBooks” or “eBooks on cooking”, etc. This usually results in clicking link after link to get to a valid download link.
