Google Tips & Tricks



Did you know that you can limit your Google searches by particular websites?  You can do so by typing site: at the end of your search then entering a url or part of a url (do not include a space between site: and your url).  For instance, if you search: immigration You get results for the search term "immigration" only from Fox News.  

Similarly, you can search immigration and get only results from MSNBC.

This strategy can help you to compare different media agencies and their reaction to different news.

Another thing you can do with this strategy is limit to educational or goverment websites by using: or


Control F

 If you hold down the buttons Ctrl and F, you can search for specific words on a page.

The Webs of the World

 Did you know that there is not only one Google but many, depending upon the country you are in?  Similarly, there are different shopping sites such as Amazon for different countries where different ads and products are sold.  You can actually search these sites by adding country codes to your searches.  Therefore, instead of typing to get to the U.S. version of Amazon, you can type in for the Canadian Amazon, for the Mexican version.  For a full list of internet country codes, look HERE.
