Go Around The Tech Corner…

Posts Tagged ‘search

When you have a very large Word or PDF document, and you want to look for a particular string of words, imagine scrolling down through all the pages or through the table of contents and guessing which page out of hundreds of them might just be the right one you need at that time!!

The most easiest way to perform a search on documents is Ctrl+F. You won’t believe how simple and great this ‘Find’ function is. I’ve used it many times and I always get what I’m looking for. Not only Word or PDF documents, you can also carry out a search on a web page! Go ahead and key in Ctrl+F right now and see what you get! It is a very powerful search tool and also very useful when you’re working with many documents.

Hope this tip was helpful…soon there’ll be a tech tip all about promoting your website for free so look out for it!!

Millions of people around the web, each of them searching for millions of things – just imagine how one person out of the entire crowd is able to get what he/she wants in less than a second! But lets not get into the technicalities of all that – how exactly it works with all the mechanism, code, servers and the intelligence it uses can be put behind the bars for now. Let’s just talk about the front-end: the page that gives u a simple textbox and a small search button that triggers off ‘God-knows-how-much-goo-that-happens-behind-the-scenes’!!!!

All search engines are good in their own ways, each of them have pros and cons…and the major factors that determine which search engine makes it to the top of your list include:

  • relevant search results
  • speed
  • ease of use
  • lack of things that waste time – mainly ads!
Google

The top of my list has always been, is and will forever be, the one and only Google! From experience, there’s just nothing like Google’s search engine. No matter what I search for, even before the page with the results loads, I know for a fact that that the first 3 hits are exactly what I’m looking for! Its simply amazing!

Yahoo!

Next on the list is Yahoo! This one produces different search results compared with Google, and it is also a strong search engine. The results will all be relevant to your search keywords. It’s nice to use it at times to see the difference between the two.

MSN is also on the top of the “best-search-engines” list. I have personally not used it a lot but I’ve read several good reviews about it. Other names that make it into this list are AOL and Excite, which are fairly good. If you know of any other and/or would like to comment about something, please feel free to do so!
