Taking Advantage of the Internet
Optimizing Internet Usage
Are you having trouble finding the information you need while surfing on the internet? If you aren't acquainted with an internet browsing window, you may run into some problems that will suck up a lot of your time. Sometimes when you are looking for something really specific, the site you are looking for might not come up immediately in the queue of a search engine. Learning to shape what information you give a search engine appropriately will save you a lot of time.
If you have any specific phrases that need to stay within their own context, remember to put quotation marks around them. This will help your search engine to search for sites that have that specific description in the exact sequence you are referencing. For instance if you search “saving the Chinese red panda,” you come up with sites that look for each individual keyword. So you'll come up with sites that are about “China” or “saving,” rather than searching for the subject that the entire phrase you wrote suggests.
There are lots of little tips like this that can save you from going through mounds of irrelevant information and direct you to the sources that you want. If you click the tab “Search Tools” in your search engine bar, you can minimize your options even more. You can choose specifications, such as when a site was uploaded or sites that you have already visited before. I remember being in middle school and realizing that all of these options all along, and I was so relieved because my internet usage became so much smoother and efficient.
