Tech Warrior Webinar - PowerSearching the Internet
We use the internet every single day - on the job and at home. But how many of us are self taught and never really had time to explore how to fine tune our searches? This webinar will focus on the many ways you can refine your search phrasing to get more precise results faster.
Participants will learn:
Make your search questions more specific to get the right results.
Discover the magic of search engine math and operators.
See past versions of a web page that may no longer exist.
Include wildcards to expand the search terms.
Exclude words that are confusing the search results.
Search multiple terms at one time.
Limit your search to one specific domain.
Restrict your results by the type of site such as showing only colleges and universities or only government sources.
Find particular types of files such as a PowerPoint presentation or an Excel Worksheet.
Utilize common built-in shortcuts on many search engines to get answers to common questions such as temperature or weight or currency conversions.
Search for images more efficiently, including finding those that are free from copyright restrictions.
Discover advanced search options that most search engines offer.
Look for very specific types of content such as patents or recipes or video or shopping
