Google is pretty amazing. I mentioned this post to my daughter, and she said “Yeah, I bet you could even Google ‘how to put a saddle on a zebra’ and it’d give you the answer.” (Spoiler alert – you shouldn’t try. They’re not as friendly as horses.)
Google can also be pretty unhelpful at times. Let’s say you were reading up on your History topic and it used the word ‘inception’. You decided to Google it to find out what the word means.
Yup. You guessed it. The WHOLE first page of results is about the movie.

Using these tips can help you make it clearer exactly what you want, so that Google gives you the most useful results.
