Check out this video from Common Craft on how to find what you want on the internet efficiently.

Here are some search tips:
  • Search with keywords, not questions.
  • Imagine what words will be on the site you would like to find.
  • You probably want to ignore the advertised sites at the top.  They paid to be there.
  • Words like of, the, a, and in are usually left out of your query.
  • Use quotation marks to search for phrases.  For example, searching for sand sharks will look for those two words in any order in any places on a website, but "sand sharks" searches for that exact phrase in that exact order any place on a website.
  • Sort your Google search results by reading level.
  • Use a search engine that automatically gives you reliable results like Sweet Search.
