    Tips for Using Google Effectively

    Quotation Marks

    Simply using quotation marks can reduce your Google search results by the millions! Enclosing two or more words in quotation marks changes your search from a keyword search to an exact phrase search. (Example: "Hugo Chavez" instead of Hugo Chavez).

    Finding .edu, .gov, or .org sites

    Quickly find .edu, .gov, or .org websites by adding the search term site:gov, site:edu, or site:org to your search terms.
