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...
THE WISE-MAN   SAID ...                  THAT YOU WILL               MASTER THIS ART AND               SHARE IT TO A NOVIC...
#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         ...
#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 C...
#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
