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

If you're looking for a place or product in a specific location, add the location. For example,
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 Timesis the same as a search for
new york times.
