Searching the Web-Helpful Hints

  • Use keywords and key phrases that describe your research topic.
  • Use quotation marks to denote phrases (many search engines recognize common phrases, but it is better to tell the computer than let the computer tell you what you want).
  • Get to know your Search Engine! Does it have special or advanced features? How does it display results? Can you configure it to work differently?
  • Use Advanced Search Options, if available.  This will give you more control over your search and improve your results.
