Google is a search engine that provides us information after we enter words or phrases in its search box. While there are other search engines available, Google is the most popular due to its incredibly fast search and comprehensiveness unmatched by its competitors.

Here are tips on how you can use Google more efficiently.

Use the tabs

Tabs are on the top of every search result in Google. These are “Web”, “Image”, “News”, and “More”. Whenever Google provides the search results, these are organized according to the type of information making it easier for users to find what they need.

If you are searching for images of LET topnotchers using Google, simply key in “LET topnotchers” and click search. Once the search result is provided, click on the “Image” tab on top of the search results and you see pictures of LET topnotchers.

Use quotation marks

Use quotation marks (“”) to find information with the exact phrase you typed in the search box.

For example, instead of typing in how to do research? on the search box, you can type in “how to do research” instead. Google will provide you with results carrying the exact phrase either found in the title, the page description or within the page itself.
