Tips for a better search in Google

As you have to do some research and look for relevant information for the next assignment: The webquest on Women and Peace, you might find the search tips below useful. I hope they help!

When you google, remember:
– Be as specific as possible when choosing keywords.
– Use the plus (+) and minus (-) signs in front of words to force their inclusion and/or exclusion in searches. There shouldn’t be a
space between the sign and the keyword.
– Use double quotation marks (” “) around phrases to ensure they are searched exactly as is, with the words side by side in the
same order. Great for song lyrics, poetry and literature quotations. Example: “Gone with the wind”
– Type keywords and phrases in lower case to find both lower and upper case versions. Typing capital letters will usually return only
an exact match. Example: president retrieves both president and President
