  • 1. Creating a Search Strategy Be specific. Using specific keywords instead of general categories will lead to specific search results. Example: eye disorder (general) cataract (specific)
  • 2. Avoid stop words * (a, about, an, and, are, as, at, be, by, from, how, i, in, is, it, of, on, or, that, the, this, to, we, what, when, where, which, with, etc.) if not necessary. As much as possible, use nouns and objects as your keywords. Example: lumanog guitar 12 strings .05 pick distortion gadget *Stop words are words that most search engines ignore.

  • 5. Join keywords into phrases whenever possible. Use quotation marks to help you get the exact phrase of what is being searched for. Example: “restaurant by the bay” – This comes up with 'Humphrys Restaurant By the Bay; however, without quotation marks, it can be 'by the bay' or 'Bay Area Restaurants'.

Think about a phrase/sentence that usually appears in articles, magazines, or books―it is, most of the time, similar to the ones read on the Internet. If the typed question can't lead to a concise answer, assume that you know part of the answer and let your search engine find the rest. Example: Q: what are the effects of too much eating? Type: too much eating leads to...
