Google--Smart Searching

Smart Searching Google

1.  Log out of Igoogle or Gmail if you're logged on (otherwise you're in the filtered bubble)

2.  Phrases always in quotation marks.

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

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

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

You should NEVER have to go through millions of results ever again.

 

In general:

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

4.  Avoid ads (shaded portions, right side entries, etc.)
