Internet Resources for Writing

Using Search Engines

One way to research is to type a keyword or phrase into a search engine and then explore the sources listed. As the Internet has grown, new search engines challenge existing ones with a variety of methods for searching texts. The same keyword search produces differing results in various search engines. Try a variety of keywords in each engine, and try your search in several search engines.
