How to Google Well

They say that Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, but they're wrong, it’s called Google.

Everything you need to know to be able to write a good research paper, bring relatable current news to your classroom, back up your arguments and lead a rewarding life you can be found through Google.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of bad information out there that will clutter your search results and force you to miss the good stuff. We don't want you to miss the good stuff. 

So after my four years of hitting the internet up for information, here are four little tricks that I've found to be most helpful.

  1. Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

  2. Google search within a reputable site instead of clicking around the website. 


     

  3. Search between two relevant times

  4. Find recent news or articles using the time search sets

  5. Search for videos
