Are You Finding What You REALLY Charge?:
Internet Searching Techniques
By: Janet L. Auditorium

Bethink the pastime Adumbrate & Seek? Aloof according to the pastime,
websites can be hiding from you on the Internet while you ace shot
to seek out particular advice, services, or products.
How accomplish you acquisition what you are seeking?

The Internet is according to the KING of all Libraries. Among the
stacks you seek. Among the librarians (search engines and
directories) you perform a affair. But if you don’t apperceive the
speech, the search criteria, or your road around, you can
amuse absent playing endless hours of adumbrate & seek.

In adjustment for you to locate the advice or site you’re
seeking, several things must accept happened:

>> The site owner must register or submit their site with the
directory in which you are doing a search. Then a absolute
person goes and checks out their site and decides if the site
is worthy of getting listed in their directory.

>> The site owner must register or submit their site with the
search engine in which you are doing a search OR the
search engine’s robots or spiders must accept * crawled
buttoned up * their websites which will grade them by abounding
altered factors. The most big agency is the statement and
weight of the site owner’s statement of keywords.

When you accomplish a search or a affair, you type in a chat or
phrase of words, adapted? Here is where you might not acquisition
what you are looking for as the site owner or
webmaster didn’t put in the keywords you are typing in the
search window.

Accordingly, the site owner or webmaster must actuate
what keywords are big for each page on their website
and what chat(s) you will type in a search window to acquisition
their site. The words you type in might not be the
webmasters keywords, so you don’t acquisition what you are
looking for.

To accomplish matters worse, each search engine and directory
can accept their own search criteria; however, most are actual
agnate.

Using particular search strategies can advice narrow your
search and hopefully acquisition the stuff added relevant to what you
are seeking.

Seven Searching Techniques to ace shot:

>> Peruse the advice section of the search engine or directory

>> Put chat(s) in citation marks; tells most search engines
you’re looking for that exact chat

>> Type in lowercase letters; abounding search engines are
position-sensitive

>> Be specific – instead of typing in organizers, type in able
organizers

>> Type in the plural anatomy of the chat

>> Type in the chat(s) misspelled, such as organizers or
organisers or orgnaizers

>> Type in a longer variation of the chat, instead of
adjust, type in organizing.

Anthony Muller, President of Interlacing Mercs, said in his article,
* How to Avoid the Most Accepted Myths and Blunders of Search Engine
Optimization *:

* There are hundreds of search engines, but alone 20-30 main
ones, and aloof four-five of them statement for 60-75% of the
total search engine traffic. For archetype, Altavista gets about
17% of the total engine marketplace and it equals roughly 40
million searches a day; as opposed to Lycos or HotBot which
each amuse 2-3% of the marketplace. It would shock you to apperceive
Yahoo alone gets about 24%! *

My two favorite search engines to locate what I’m looking for
is dogpile.com and alltheweb.com

dogpile.com allows you to search buttoned up 14 search engines
at the selfsame age! Type in your chat(s), click on FETCH,
and WaLA! You’ve aloof worked a babyish smarter, not harder.
At dogpile.com you can choose to search buttoned up images,
audio, auctions, statement, FTP, Discussion, and Baby Biz.

At dogpile you can statement advanced searching techniques, by
using supplementary syntax, that will advice * you accretion added
ascendancy over your search and weed out any unwanted
results. *

Supplementary Syntax for Searching Techniques:

>> Type AND between words or the symbol + before a chat
thus allowing a specific combination of words to be ad hoc
in all search results.
Archetype: At ease AND Clutter or At ease + Clutter will aftereffect in
altered search results.

>> Type NOT between words or the symbol – before a chat
Archetype: Dogs NOT Cats or Dogs – Cats will aftereffect in sites
when alone dogs arise but not cats.

>> Type OR to accommodate both words.
Archetype: Office OR Clutter

Not all search engines abutment these syntaxes in dogpile;
accordingly, dogpile will alone search the engines that abutment
the syntax you statement, allowing a added tailored aftereffect.

alltheweb.com searches for documents on the Internet that
contain your search chat(s). They action a pull down menu to
the left of the search window where you can choose from
altered syntaxes. They again action an advanced search
where you can perform chat filters, chat(s) that should be
included or excluded from your search.

Here’s to finding what you are looking for!
