Vimeo: How to search videos like a ninja?


Vimeo has a rich database of many amazing videos contributed by millions of users and producers.

The plus point (out of many): its ad-free.

The point that freaks me out: search.

Believe it or not Vimeo has no idea what a user is looking for, making you believe that the content you are looking for doesn’t exists on Vimeo.

Before you dump Vimeo of for good, let me share a little secret with you and you will be searching Vimeo like a ninja.

I’m sure Goolge is your best friend (if not,its time to do so).

So, without further delay here’s the secret:

All you have to do is:

  • goto Google
  • type `vimeo` and the video title you are looking for on Vimeo

e.g: `vimeo be here now ray lamontagne`

Turning Goolge Instant Search suggestions off


According to Google

Google Instant can save 2-5 seconds per search

But for me 2 or 5 second should not be a big deal at all. As I have a slow connection most of the time therefore the “Instant” predictions stays disappeared for longer than 5 seconds and that becomes annoying for the curious searchers. Then I’d be like “get me out of here!” after refreshing the page numerous times.

So, how can you turn that thing off?

Well, that’s pretty easy just head to your Google Search Settings and click on “Never show Instant results” under Google Instant predictions
