    Not as advanced as some of these, esc + : set number has saved my life multiple times, especially when I am following a tutorial. It counts and displays the line numbers. Maybe it is one that everyone knows, but I remember googling for it a while back during a project. Could be very helpful for people just starting out. :)

    Open vim in the first matching for specific word, in this case NameVirtualHost

    $ vim +/NameVirtualHost /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
