Smarter Google Searching

1.  Put phrases in quotation marks to get an exact match.  Example: "Matrilineal society"

2.  At Search Results page, click on the Settings option on the top right and select Advanced Search.

3.  In Advanced, Enter more terms in the top bars.

4  Limit by site or domain (such as .edu, .gov or .org) OR limit by file type (such as .PDF)


In general:

1.  I Feel Lucky is NEVER an option for a researcher.

2.  Search Google with your Google profile turned off (Email, Igoogle, Google Docs, etc.)

3. Wikipedia entries-- only useful if you look at and evaluate what the sources are for the entry.  Wikipedia by itself is NOT reliable.
