Maximize Your Google Search Results

"Google-it!" I say it all the time. It is synonymous with 'search for' or 'look up' on the internet. The tough part isn't typing in a query, though, it's sorting out the millions of results.

Here is a tip for you (really a blast from the past): Put quotation marks around what you are looking for if it is more than one word. This will eliminate all of the pointless and irrelevant results and give you only hits on the words, phrase, or sequence you are looking for. 

If that was too easy or maybe you just want to see what else Google can do for you, try out the following "power-search" features~>

And last, but not least, there is Google Scholar
