Have you ever wanted to retrieve more focused Internet search results than doing a standard, basic Internet search?
Internet search tools often allow you to create focused searches through the use of a few additional characters as part of your search and/or they may have specialized tools built into them.
Although these tips come from Google, similar options can be used when using other search engines.
Just like when searching databases, use quotations to search for phrases.
If you only want to view government websites, put your keywords and site:gov in the search box.
