Googler By Habit?

By on September 8, 2012

Do you always search information only in the Google search engine? I have asked many of my friends and even students about which  search engine they used to find infomation-almost all theiri answer was Google! Let me tell you this, most of us search Google is because of habit and not because of facts. The fact is that there good information out there that can be found besides Google. No doubt that I use Google to search for information but you also need to know that besides the big brother Google, I also use Bing.com and Yahoo.com to look for the things i want be it information, photos, schematic diagrams, and etc.

Many times the Google algorithm will change and the result that we get may not be so targeted thus we have to rely on other search engines to help us out. If you have anything to share about searching information in search engine please do leave a comment below-thanks

      Hi Jojo,

      Yes try Bing.com as some search results are more relevant.

    Have you tried Google's search operators? Most people know that enclosing a term in double quotes will search for the exact phrase, but not everyone knows about the | (pipe) and - (dash) operators.
    Pipe (|) is a boolean OR, while dash (-) tells google two words are "strongly related".
    These can often make Google's algorithm slightly more directed.

      Hi Will,

      Thanks for the tip. I do use the quotation mark.
