Google Search


Improve Your Searching

Follow these three easy tips to improve your search success:

  1. Start simple (then add descriptive words)

  2. Be specific (use specific phrases to describe what you want)

  3. Don't sweat the small stuff (Google ignores capitalization & punctuation)

Word Order Matters

The way you word your search affects the results you'll find. When Google searches in response to your query, it looks for words in the particular order in which you entered them. Change your search results by shifting the order of your words a bit.
