Google tips

For advanced searching, has a great list of operators to limit your results.  “Power Searching with Google” has a similar list, as does Boolean Strings. Western Kentucky University Libraries has a table of advanced search commands for Google and other search engines.  Google also has its own basic and advanced search help pages.  I recommend giving the “site:” command a spin.

A reporter for the San Antonio Express-News recently wrote about some “awesome” Google search techniques.  Search Engine Showdown also has a useful review of Google, albeit somewhat outdated.

Looking for Google’s latest and greatest?  Try the company’s official blog.

Last but not least, take a look at Google 101 for Journalists.

And although it doesn’t fall under the category of “tips,” you might find the 2008 Atlantic article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” interesting.
