This lecture gives a brief introduction to the use of the effective field theory approach in the search of indirect signals of Beyond the Standard Model physics through the study of Higgs phenomenology. After discussing how to best organize the basis of dimension-6 operators (expected to be the dominant ones), we discuss the hierarchy of constraints one can set on these operators already from pre-LHC data and we identify the operators that can only be constrained by LHC Higgs data. Finally, we
