Internet activity3

  1. 1. Google, in my opinion, is the best search engine in the internet. It is definitely the mostefficient and most reliable search engine there is that can produce millions of results within afraction of a second. Google is the most used search engine because of its simple user friendlyinterface unlike other search engines such as Yahoo! which takes a while longer to load because ofits many ads and does not produce results as good as Google. In fact, Google is so popular that yearsago, it qualified as an official word. Now when you say you’re going to Google something, it meansyou’re going to search for something or find out more about something. I use Google all the timebecause I enjoy reading about different topics and I rely on Google whenever I need to find lyrics orarticles or information for my research papers. I find these Google search tips very helpful, althoughI already know and regularly use some of these methods such as Word Definitions, Calculator,Exclude Words, Explicit Phrase, Area Code Lookup and This OR That. I use Word Definitionswhenever I write reaction papers or essays, or whenever I spell check or try to see if my use of acertain word is correct. I use Google as a calculator whenever I need to solve simple math problems.I exclude words, use This OR That and use an explicit phrase so I can search for things faster and Iuse Area Code Lookup to check where a certain area code belongs. I aim to enrich my skills in searching through Google. I am going to try and use Site SpecificSearch, Similar Words and Synonyms and Specific Document Types the next time I look somethingup on Google. I think that out of the ones I do not know how to do yet, these will be the most useful.As for the other methods of searching in Google, I find Phone Listing and Numeric Ranges the leasthelpful because I don’t know when I will ever need to use them. The Stock (Ticker Symbol) will proveto be very helpful, though, in the future. I am happy to have read about these expert tricks in Googlesearching because now searching in Google will be more efficient for me than before!
