Web Search Tips

Limit your search results to a type of web address or a specific website:

  • search terms site:any part of a web address
  • crater lake site:.gov
    • Returns search results that match the search terms crater lake and have .gov somewhere in the URL (web address).
  • crater lake site:nps.gov
    • Returns search results that match the search terms crater lake and have nps.gov somewhere in the URL (web address).

 

In your web browser, set your location to New York City.

  • Since search engines return results that are based upon what other people in your area are searching, you can often find far better search results if you set the location in your web browser to a heavily populated area with many research institutions, such as New York City.
