Advanced seaching

By Patrick Johnson

What is a advanced search?

An advanced search is a customization search which you can use to filler some results or search for specific things. We use it to make our searches more specific.

Boolean searches allow you to combine words and phrases using the words AND, OR, NOT and NEAR (otherwise known as Boolean operators) to limit, widen, or define your search. Most Internet search engines and Web directories default to these Boolean search parameters anyway, but a good Web searcher should know how to use basic Boolean operators.

The term 'exact phrase' means that if you type a few certain words in the search bar and it will then search every thing that has those specific words in.

Online security

'phishing' is meant by trying to hook people in by fooling people into giving people their details.

They use drop down boxes on secure websites for pass codes instead of typing in pass numbers because hackers will find it harder to hack when you have to click using the mouse instead of using the keyboard.


'Bandwidth' means the amount of data that can be steamed over a given amount of time.

'Latency' means how delayed the connection.

'Buffering' means the computer is loading and that it has a bad connection.
