Using Google Search Engine-Some Tips for Beginners

Google is the most widely used search engine in the world of internet surfing. We all love Google because of its efficiency and wider scope. Google will come with many search results whatever topic you enter in your search query. The more desirable feature of Google search engine is that it corrects your misspelled entries and shows you real search results. So, this lovable search engine has now become the only preferences for internet
content searchers.

For many of the beginners in internet surfing, Google has caused confusion as it return with too many search results and they cannot identify their target link. This is because they have little knowledge about URL links and highlighted Google results. They only follow the main headings and more relevant search results and in this way they are incorporated in various irrelevant websites and unwanted links, wasting their time and energy. 

If you are new to internet surfing and you have no reasonable knowledge about web addresses and Google search, you are at right place then. This post is especially for you. Let’s know what is important to know in order to take real advantage of Google search.

I won’t indulge in technicalities because I don’t want you to navigate away from this post. I would use simple but to the point words in an informal way. So let’s begin.

  • When you want to search a topic on the internet, use strictly relevant search key words. For example, you want to search an article on “How to lead and pleasant matrimonial life” you may add all these word in you search entry or you may search “lead a pleasant matrimonial life”. Similarly if you want to search a movie or video on the same topic add the word “video” to your search entry. Or you can search this topic in Google videos instead. Google provides us with a variety of search tools. If you want to search in images, you can choose “images” fro Google search menu. Similarly you can choose “Google Docs” for a search in Google documents.
  • The Google will present you with hundreds of web links relevant to your search query. As you will read the headings highlighted by Google, you should also see the URLs below those headings. It will show you where that link will take you to. You can judge whether that heading is on a specific topic related website or it’s just a link to a website which already contains only links to other websites. It is important to learn about the link you are clicking on. So when you decide to click on a link, just see its URL once.
  • Google always shows some ads above the real search results. These ads have a light pink transparent back ground color. There might be two, three or four ads relevant to your search query. Users unconsciously click on those ads and are directed to irrelevant website or to inappropriate content. Just ignore those ads and focus on the real search results below those ads. These ads are also showed at the end of the search results page.
  • There are many websites with high ranking and rating. Those are presented first in Google search results. But those websites may not contain the things you are looking for. Those websites may contain such links or words as are included in your search query. So don’t haste to click on those web links. Just carefully examine the headings, highlighted text, and web URLs and then choose the best one.
  • If you want to search in scholarly articles, you can choose “scholars” from Google search menu. If you want to search in news, you can choose “news” from Google search menu. You will be presented with more relevant and more limited results.
  • Every link included in search results is a unique place on the internet. Do carefully read those linkages before you follow those links. That link may take you to a specific website. URLs are also identity of corresponding websites. If you have reasonable knowledge of these URLs, you will have better search skills and you will spend little time in collecting desired information. So, once you visit a specific website, try to remember its URL or web address so that the next time you can make a better decision whether you want to visit this very link or not.

I hope these tips will help you understand the content in Google search results and you will surf securely and relevantly.
