Tuesday Tips: Quote Me
One of my go to search tricks is using quotation marks.
Putting quotation marks around a keyword phrase when you enter it into the search box—for example, by typing “climate change” or “global warming”—allows you to search for an exact phrase. That is, your search results will contain items that have the words you put in quotation marks right next to each other and not items that have one word in one place and another word in another, possibly unrelated place.
Quotation marks can be very helpful when you are searching for a concept that isn’t expressed with only one word. Plus, they work on almost every search tool, including Google.
