Information source – The internet

With the advent of the internet, a vast realm of knowledge has been opened to everyone who uses the World Wide Web. Information, facts, opinions, news, theories, essays, researches and paper writing online experts – all are now available at a click’s distance. Normally, if people are searching for a particular resource or information on a topic, they use search engines. These search engines are extremely powerful and efficient, but to get the best out of them, it is essential to have good searching skills.

Searching skills

Everyone knows how to type in a few keywords to get relevant information, but not everyone knows what keywords to use to get the best results and what other techniques to use to make your search more efficient. For example, If a whole sentence is written, the articles ‘a’, ’an’, and ‘the’ and small words like ‘of’, ‘in’ and ‘at’ will most probably be ignored by the search engine. These things and a lot of other things need to be understood if one is to become an expert at searching the internet.

Narrowing and widening

Learn how to narrow your search, and how to widen it. What must you write if you want to be general and what will make your search more specific and precise? Narrowing or widening your search results is one of the things you must know how to do.

Special operators

Using search operators is another thing which can give great results if learnt and implied properly.  These include the minus sign, to exclude any results, and also operators like the plus sign, the tilde sign, the wildcard sign (asterisk) and the OR operator. Quotation marks are also a great help. They are used when a user wants to search for an exact phrase, i.e. for searching for the written text verbatim.
