Troubleshooting

The important thing to remember about using any search site is to be smart about it, and to learn from your mistakes. Construct an intelligent and sophisticated query, and use the same query on multiple search sites. Examine your results, and learn from them to fine-tune your query. Don’t limit yourself in where you search, or how you search; try new sites and new methods with regularity.

Above all, maintain a sense of curiosity. Don’t stop looking with the first page you visit. When you visit a Web page, look for links on that page to other pages. Follow those links, and then follow the next set of links. Always be on the lookout for good sources of information, no matter where they may come from. You’ll be surprised just how much information you can find, if you’re only open to finding it!
