TIPS FOR USING GOOGLE EFFECTIVELY

Quotation marks

Using quotation marks can reduce your Google search results by the millions. Simply enclose two or more words in quotation marks to change your search from a keyword search to an exact phrase search. (Example: "global financial crisis" instead of global financial crisis).


Finding .edu, .gov, or .org sites

Many teachers do not allow students to use commercial websites for their research (indicated by a .com web address). Quickly find .edu, .gov, or .org websites by adding the search term site:gov, site:edu, or site:org to your search terms.
