  • 21. Let’s start by typing in a search phrase e.g your name mine is“mr colin hamilton” hit the 'Enter'
  • 22. You get a results page– lets have a look at this page next…
  • 23. Google results page ( but only 1000 results are ever returned ) <ul><li>A. Top links </li></ul><ul><li>B. Google search button </li></ul><ul><li>C. Advanced search </li></ul><ul><li>D. Search field </li></ul><ul><li>E. Preferences </li></ul><ul><li>F. Statistics bar </li></ul><ul><li>G. Tip </li></ul><ul><li>H. OneBox results </li></ul><ul><li>I. Page title </li></ul><ul><li>J. Text below the title </li></ul><ul><li>K. URL of result </li></ul><ul><li>L. Size </li></ul><ul><li>M. Cached </li></ul><ul><li>N. Similar pages </li></ul><ul><li>O. Indented result </li></ul><ul><li>P. More results </li></ul>Now a quick look at a cached page
  • 24. Cached pages <ul><li>Google takes a snapshot of each page when it crawls a site </li></ul><ul><li>Used as a back-up in case the original page is unavailable. </li></ul><ul><li>Click on the &quot;Cached&quot; link, to view it </li></ul><ul><li>When the cached page is displayed, it will have a header at the top which serves as a reminder that this is not necessarily the most recent version of the page. </li></ul><ul><li>Terms that match your query are highlighted on the cached version to make it easier for you to see why your page is relevant. </li></ul>
  • 25. Google stores a copy of webpages and highlights where the terms are useful for in long pages!
  • 26. Or you could follow the link as normal to the original page
  • 27. Ok so that’s fine. <ul><li>We have searched for a phrase and got a result. </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s look a what makes a good search… </li></ul>
  • 28. Choosing search terms <ul><li>Choosing the right search terms is the key to finding the information you need. </li></ul><ul><li>You can start with keywords such as “ Japan Capital ” </li></ul><ul><li>Or you can be very specific by asking a very specific question “ what is the capital of japan ” </li></ul><ul><li>Any question you can think of; most likely someone else has thought of before and google will already have a record of it. </li></ul><ul><li>So give it a try, ask a question </li></ul>
  • 29. Questions <ul><li>What is the time </li></ul><ul><li>What is the capital of Scotland </li></ul><ul><li>What is podcasting </li></ul><ul><li>You will find that asking questions- Google often answers as well as giving you pages with results. </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 30. Capitalisation <ul><li>Google searches are NOT case sensitive. All letters, regardless of how you type them, will be understood as lower case. For example, searches for </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tony Blair , </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>TONY BLAIR, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>toNy bLAiR </li></ul></ul><ul><li>will all return the same results. </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 31. Automatic &quot; and &quot; queries <ul><li>By default, Google only returns pages that include all of your search terms. </li></ul><ul><li>Google says there is no need to include &quot; and &quot; between terms. </li></ul><ul><li>“ car and insurance ” “ car insurance ” should return the same result. </li></ul><ul><li>In some cases you may find that it DOES make a difference. </li></ul><ul><li>ALSO ! Keep in mind that the order in which the terms are typed will affect the search results. </li></ul><ul><li>Insurance car and car insurance will return different results </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 32. Automatic exclusion of common words <ul><li>Google ignores common words </li></ul><ul><li>E.g &quot; where &quot; and &quot; how “ </li></ul><ul><li>If a common word is essential to getting the results you want, you can include it by putting a &quot;+&quot; sign in front of it. Star wars +episode +1 </li></ul><ul><li>Or use Quotes (e.g., “Star wars episode 1&quot; ) </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 33. Word variations (stemming) <ul><li>E.g If you search for pet dog dietary needs , Google will also search for pet dog diet needs , and other related variations of your terms. </li></ul><ul><li>Any variants of your terms that were searched for will be highlighted in the snippet of text accompanying each result. </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 34. “ Phrase searches” <ul><li>You can search for specific sentences </li></ul><ul><li>E.g . “what is the best mp3 player” </li></ul><ul><li>Put quotation marks around your search terms. </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 35. Exclusive terms <ul><li>If your search term has more than one meaning </li></ul><ul><ul><li>E.g (virus) , a computer one or a real one? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Put a minus sign (&quot;-&quot;) in front of words related to the meaning you want to avoid. </li></ul><ul><li>To Find pages about viruses excluding computer viruses virus -computer </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 36. And finally... &quot;I'm Feeling Lucky&quot; <ul><li>&quot;I'm Feeling Lucky&quot; button, takes you straight to the most relevant website that Google found for your query. </li></ul><ul><li>E.g. search for Strathclyde university and click &quot;I'm Feeling Lucky&quot; instead of the Google Search button. Google will take you directly to &quot;www.strath.ac.uk&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Give it a try </li></ul>
  • 37. NOW some more search types <ul><li>Lets look at other ways to refine your search </li></ul><ul><li>Using : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>OR </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>synonyms, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Domain searches </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Number ranges </li></ul></ul>
  • 38. Using OR in a search <ul><li>You can search for several terms at once such as </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;holidays in japan&quot; OR &quot;holidays in china“ </li></ul><ul><li>And you will get results for either. </li></ul><ul><li>Try it now. </li></ul>
  • 39. Using Include in a Search <ul><li>If a common word is essential to getting the results you want, you can include it by putting a &quot;+&quot; sign in front of it. </li></ul><ul><li>Star wars +episode +1 </li></ul><ul><li>Which we have already seen </li></ul><ul><li>Try it now. </li></ul>
  • 40. Using a Synonym in a Search <ul><li>Search for a term and also its synonyms, </li></ul><ul><li>place the tilde sign (&quot;~&quot;) immediately in front of your search term. </li></ul><ul><li>E.g. ~auto insurance </li></ul><ul><li>To search for auto, car, vehicle etc </li></ul><ul><li>Try it now. </li></ul>
  • 41. Doing a Domain Search <ul><li>You can use Google to search only within one specific website </li></ul><ul><li>Enter the search terms you're looking for, followed by the word &quot;site&quot; and a colon followed by the domain name. </li></ul><ul><li>Eg. prospectus site:strath.ac.uk </li></ul><ul><li>Try it now. </li></ul>
  • 42. Doing a Numrange Search <ul><li>Numrange searches for results containing numbers in a given range. </li></ul><ul><li>Just add two numbers, separated by two periods, with no spaces, into the search box along with your search terms. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, here's how you'd search for a DVD player that costs between £50 and £100: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>DVD player £50..£100 Will show you a link to froogle results. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Try it now. </li></ul>
