Hour 10. Searching for Information > Understanding Searches

Understanding Searches

Each of the search tools described in Hour 9, and just about any other you might encounter on the Web, has a text box featured prominently near the top of its main page (see Figure 10.1). That text box is where you will type your search terms. Adjacent to the box, there's always a submit button, almost always labeled "Search."

Typing a search term in a text box and then clicking the submit button to send the term to the search tool is known as submitting a search term. Such searches are sometimes also described as keyword searches, because the search term serves as a key to finding matching pages.
