    • THE WISE-MAN’STIPS ON WEB RESEARCH
    • IN THE KINGDOM CALLED INTERNET...
    • THERE WAS ONCE A MAN NAMED SIR SEARCHER
    • WHO IS IN SEARCH FOR THEPERFECT INFORMATION FOR HIS RESEARCH.
    • JUST LIKE OTHER HUMANS WHO VENTURED BEFORE HIM
    • HE ARRIVED AT A PUB CALLED THE SEARCH BAR.
    • THERE HE MET A WISE-MAN
    • WHO HAD PERFECTED THE SKILL OFFINDING THE PERFECT INFORMATION.
    • HE ASKED THE WISE-MAN TO SHARE SOME OF HIS TIPS
    • DEAR SIR, WOULD YOU CARE TO SHARE WITH ME SOME TIPS ON HOW TO MASTER THE ART OF FINDING THE PERFECT INFORMATION???
    • THE WISE-MAN SAID ... LISTEN CAREFULLY TO THESE TIPS I AM SHARING TO YOU AND SWEAR BY THE WORLD WIDE WEB...
    • THE WISE-MAN SAID ... THAT YOU WILL MASTER THIS ART AND SHARE IT TO A NOVICE AS I HAVE DONE FOR YOU.
    • #1 NEVER BEGIN YOUR SEARCH WITH THE WEB.
    • THE INTERNET IS NOT THE BEST PLACE TO STARTSEARCHING FOR WHATEVER INFORMATION YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.
    • BECAUSE OF THE FREEDOM THAT THE SOCIALMEDIA MOGUL IS GIVING TO THE NETIZENS,
    • EVERYONE CAN UPLOAD ANYTHING EVEN THE CHEAPEST AND THE WORTHLESS.
    • BEFORE STARTING, YOU NEED TO ASSESSYOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT MATTER.
    • BEGIN WITH WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW AND USE IT AS A JUMPING BOARD. LOOK ONLY FOR THINGS YOU HAVE SO LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OF.
    • #2 BRAINSTORM FOR KEYWORDS
    • THINK AHEAD OF TIME.
    • PLAN FOR WHAT KEY TERMS YOU WILL LOOK FOR.
    • REMEMBER THAT THE INTERNET IS A VAST WILDERNESS
    • IF YOU DON’T HAVE A MAP, YOU WILL GET LOST
    • YOUR KEYWORDS SERVE AS YOUR MAP,
    • GUIDING YOU TOWARDS THE PERFECTINFORMATION THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.
    • #3 MAKE USE OF THE SEARCH OPERATOR SPELLS
    • THESE ARE SPECIAL MAGIC SPELLS THAT YOU CAN USE TO FILTER YOUR SEARCHES.
    • #4 OBSERVE GOOGLE HOLIDAYS
    • REMEMBER, NOT ALL THAT LORD GOOGLE SAYS IS ACCURATE.
    • ASIDE FROM LORD GOOGLE, THERE ARE OTHER LORDS AT THE COUNCIL OF THE SEARCH ENGINES
    • MAKE USE OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE.
    • THEY MAY NOT BE AS FILTHY RICH AS LORD GOOGLE
    • THEY MAY NOT BE AS FILTHY RICH AS LORD GOOGLE BUT THEY STILL HAVE SOME USEFUL DATA THAT YOU CAN USE IN YOUR QUEST.
    • #5 LOOK HARDER AND DIG DEEPER
    • DO NOT RELY ON THE FIRST PAGE OF THE S.E.R.P.
    • YOU NEED TO LOOK HARDER AND DIG EVEN DEEPER
    • THE BEST INFORMATION IS NOT ALWAYS ON THE FIRST PAGE
    • SEO WIZARDS HAVE PROBABLY OPTIMIZED THE PAGE
    • #6 BE SKEPTICAL
    • ACT LIKE A DETECTIVE AND QUESTION EVERY PAGE.
    • A GOOD DETECTIVE ALWAYS VERIFIESCRITICAL INFORMATION WITH MULTIPLE SOURCES.
    • ASK YOURSELF WHETHER THE INFORMATION IS CREDIBLE, AUTHORITATIVE, OBJECTIVE, ACCURATE AND UP TO DATE.
    • #7 DON’T RUSH
    • YOU WILL NEED PATIENCE WHEN YOU’RELOOKING FOR THE PERFECT INFORMATION FOR YOUR RESEARCH.
    • USE PROPER JUDGMENT AND WITH EXTREME PRUDENCE,
    • EVALUATE THE PAGES THAT YOU MIGHT FIND ALONG THE WAY BECAUSE LOOKS CAN BE DECEIVING.
    • THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT YOUSHOULD PERFORM IN ORDER TO OBTAIN PERFECTION!
    • THANK YOU SO MUCH SIR... WHAT’S YOUR NAME AGAIN???THEN THE WISE-MAN VANISHED INTO THIN AIR
    • SO, SIR SEARCHER CONTINUED HIS JOURNEY INTO THE KINGDOM CALLED INTERNET
