Google.com is pretty self explanatory. Right? If you said yes, there’s a good chance you’re not using Google to its full potential.
Recently, I found that there’s this complete underground world of mind-blowing search tools for Google, never before mentioned to me. The infographic says that three out of every four students couldn’t perform a “well-executed search”. Typing “regular show death punchies” instead of simply “regular show” does not constitute a well-executed search. Instead, there’s a whole list of tildes, brackets, and quotation points that can tweak a search for better or worse.
With midterm papers beginning to breath down my back, this information will be quite beneficial. Being able to use Google properly won’t guarantee me residency on the Dean’s List. But here’s to wishful thinking. [Via]
