How to use Google Search

Type in the topic you are looking to learn about, and click "search", the results will display below the search bar.

Tip 1: Keep it simple

No matter what you're looking for, start with a simple search like where's the closest airport?. You can always add a few descriptive words if necessary.

If you're looking for a place or product in a specific location, add the location. For example, bakery seattle

Tip 2: Choose words carefully

When you're deciding what words to put in the search box, try to choose words that are likely to appear on the site you're looking for. For example, instead of saying my head hurts, say headache, because that’s the word a medical site would use.

Tip 3: Don’t worry about the little things

  • Spelling. Google's spell checker automatically uses the most common spelling of a given word, whether or not you spell it correctly. 
  • Capitalization. A search for New York Times is the same as a search for new york times.
