Have you ever been called by someone claiming to be Microsoft technical support, Revenue Canada or the IRS, only to find that it's someone trying to steal your information?

Searching Smarter

by ShiftUP 15. November 2013 04:35

As someone who spends a very large part of his day searching the internet for work related solutions, I have a few search tips for you!

The technique I probably use the most is the ignore words feature of google.  Say I want to search for a recipe for salsa and I'm having a friend over that isn't a fan of the taste of tomatoes, so I search for salsa recipe -tomato and I find an interesting recipe for avocado corn salsa.  It can also be used in multiples like this -> Imagine you were having a discussion with a friend about this John Wayne movie you were trying to remember.  You make a search for John Wayne movie and you get a slew of results that unfortunately don't ring a bell.  Now you know it wasn't a western, so you search for John Wayne movie -western which certainly vastly reduces the search but some of the top results are still not right so you begin filtering them out John Wayne movie -western -"Jet Pilot" -"Blood Alley" and there it is!  Circus World!
