  • 86. Organizing a Search • What is it I’m looking for? (think about common keywords) • How would someone else talk about it? (what words would they use? how would THEY describe it?) • Which of those terms would be most common? • Which of those terms would be very specialized to this topic? • What kind of thing would make me happy? (do I want a single web page, a definition, a collection, an image.... or … ?) Sunday, April 10, 2011
  • 87. Keyword Choice • Think about what you are trying to find • Choose words that you think will appear on the page • Put yourself in the mindset of the author of those words • Use synonyms • Start broad and use just a few words, then go deep • Use contextual terms Sunday, April 10, 2011
  • 88. Other Search Tips • Use specifiers • Example: [Oregon population wikipedia] • Try an image search when normal means fail, you might find something that will be useful or spark your interest in a different way. • Word order matters—when it’s not working one way, try another. • When searching for common phrases, don’t leave out the “stop words.” (e.g., [ Lord of the Rings] ) • Use double quotes to find a particular sequence of words • Example:“Daniel M Russell” or “Ursula K Le Guin” Sunday, April 10, 2011
