Google is a go-to source for many people because of its comprehensiveness, but that can also lead to unmanageable search results.

  • For better Googling use the site feature in your search. For example, if you want to find out about poverty in Tennessee you would search: poverty site:* Using the * (wild card) allows any government site in Tennessee that deals with the subject, poverty, to be included.
  • You might also try phrase searching, which can be done by putting quotation marks around the phrase. For example: "child abuse" will search those two words in that order, with no words in between.
