Effective Google Searcher

Evaluating Internet Website

•Choose sites carefully.

•Triangulate your information... which means find 3 sites that provide the same information.

•Check to see if there is an author or organization clearly marked on the site.

•Credible sites end in: .edu, .gov, .org.

•Most sites that end in .com are commercial sites and pay money to be on the internet.

•When was the information last updated? Be sure to fin d the copyright date.

•Just because a site has pretty pictures and graphics doesn't mean that is it credible!


Search Cues

•An effective search has 6-8 words.

•Google ignores common word(and, is, a, to, ect.)

•Use Boolean characters such as +,-,*

•"Fibonacci Sequence."

•The order of the key term words also matters.

•~(tidle) Searches synonyms.
