Why Can’t I Find What I Want With Search Engines?

When I search on any engine I get everything except what I want. How about telling your fans how to just get what they are looking for and not a bunch of stuff they are not.  Thanks, Chuck.

 Chuck, I can’t promise you’ll find just what you’re looking for, but there are a few tips to make searching productive. Go with the KISS method – Keep It Simple & Specific. If you want to find out more about swimming lessons for toddlers in your town, don’t type “toddler” or “swimming” in the search box. Asking “Where can really little kids learn about swimming?” will bring up all kinds of results you don’t care about. Even a more specific sentence like “Where can I find toddler swimming lessons?” might not get the results you want. Remember, you don’t need a full sentence, so just pick out the important words.

 

Searching toddler swimming lessons with the name of your town will give you specific results.

 

We’ve got a couple of great articles with more specific search tips here and here.  Hope this helps you find what you’re looking for.
