The Web may seem like a vast ocean when it comes to finding something you need. Thankfully, search engines can help turn an ocean of information into small pools that make finding information easier This is web search strategies in plain English Before we dive in let's talk a bit about how search works on the web. Search engines go out and try account for every word on every web page. All this information is then organized for easy reference. when you search for a word the search engine finds all the pages where the world appears and displays them in the search results. Usually, the pages that appear highest in search results have lots of web pages linked to them. Each link acts as a vote to says "This may be a good resource." The problem is that there are often too many results. you don t need anay resords let is look at how this works say you are looking for a especific kinds of fish and these represent all the websites on the web Searching for fish doesn't help much There are way too many results You need to be more specific Try to imagine the exact fish and describe it in the search box You'll see that each word you use gets you closer to what you need You can do this for any website by imagining the website that has your answer What is the title of the page? What words appear on it? If you put those words in the search box you'll get closer to finding answers But to be a smart searcher you should know some basic shortcuts Let is say you are looking for words that appear together like a phrase or a quote An example is a search for information on sand sharks If you search for it like this the search engine looks for pages with sand and shark To get better results put quotes around the words like this It limits the results to the exact phrase Here is another shortcut words often have multiple meanings Consider the word mullet which is both a fish and a hairstyle A search for mullet may give you a number of results about the hairstyle but fewer about the fish which means show me the pages about mullet but take away results relating to hair By being specific and using words and symbols that remove useless information you can find exactly what you need and keep the Web from swallowing you whole I am Lee Lefever and this has been Web Search Strategies in Plain English on the Common Craft Show The Common Craft Store now offers downloadable versions of our videos for use in the workplace Find them at
