Google Tips & Tricks

Google Smarter!

  • Put quotation marks around words that you want to stick together as a phrase
  • Add "" to the end of your search to ONLY search websites on government domains
  • Add "filetype: .pdf" to ONLY search for information you think is likely to be in PDF format (reports, documents, etc.)
  • Use the minus sign or dash to eliminate results that are off target (Example:  food system -digestive)
  • Remember that Google is only a computer, and doesn't understand the concepts in your search.  So, try your search using different keywords and phrases that mean the same thing.
