Ten essential tips for searching the Web | Macworld

Searching for the right results among the billions of pages on the Web? You don't need just a search engine; you also need some know-how.

Charles Tiayon's curator insight, October 16, 2013 5:49 AM

Finding just the right page among the billions on the Web requires not only a search engine but also a bit of know-how. Here is a selection of my favorite tips for searching the Web.

1. Search for a phrase

To search for an exact, complete phrase and not just its constituent words, put it in quotation marks. For example, instead of typing at sunrise on my birthdaytype ”at sunrise on my birthday”. The number of hits will shrink dramatically, as you’ll see only pages that include that exact phrase.

2. Be more specific

If you want to find articles about managing bookmarks in Safari on an iPhone running iOS 7, don’t search for just manage bookmarks. Throw all those terms in: manage bookmarks safari iphone ios 7. The more information you provide, the more useful your results are likely to be.

3. Exclude a word

To make sure your search for information on the connector your iPhone uses doesn’t return matches about an atmospheric phenomenon or a fictional race car, put a hyphen (-) in front of terms that should disqualify a page from appearing in Google’s results—for example, lightning -thunder -storm -McQueen.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just drag and drop a spreadsheet of terms onto an icon on your desktop and have this conversion done automatically for you? Wouldn’t it be great if you could drag and drop your termbase onto the same icon and have the spreadsheet created for you? Of course this would be fantastic and would probably suit the personal needs of most translators using Studio today… and also those who have not made the leap to Studio yet.
