Google Advanced Search

☀☀☀☀☀ Google’s advanced search features make research easier and faster. Most know the basic Google search bar, but many are unaware of advanced search. The Google News Lab tutorial, or the optional pdf download of the lesson, quickly help explain how to use this tool. Search by “exact word or phrase” by putting it in quotes. A minus sign as in olympics -2008 excludes the word immediately after the minus. Journalists, and everyone, can benefit from advanced search. Such tools help Google outshine many competitors, such as Bing, which is nowhere near as helpful or user-friendly.  Nisa Ayral
