[Linkage] O is for Online Searches

Note: My A-Z theme is linkage. Every day (at 7:00 a.m. EST), I'm going to list three helpful industry links per letter, and then I'll ask for suggestions in the comments—that way, we can pool our resources! :)

O is for Online Searches:

Which search engine do you use?

P.S. For those of you who couldn't get a copy of the article yesterday, here's a photo... *faints*

I didn't realize there were tricks to using Google search. Thanks for the links, Carrie. The academic one looks cool. I'll have to remember it. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I am often frustrated by my search (I am a google girl), but tricks to do it more efficiently are great. And look at you all newspaper famous. I am in awe. WOW.

I love Google and Google Chrome. Using Internet Explorer makes me cringe!

Julie Luek said...

Google is amazing and can do so much more than I'm probably aware of. I'll have to check a few of these sites out. Thanks for sharing Carrie! And VERY COOL article!

Fairview said...

How exciting! Congrats on the interview!

Carrie Butler said...

It's fun to Google your cover and see where it pops up. :)

Carrie-Anne said...

I use Google 99.9% of the time these days. I used to use Highway 61 and Ask Jeeves. Ask.com just isn't the same anymore since they axed Jeeves.

Carrie Butler said...

Tricks really do save time! :) And thank you, Robin!

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Ella! I just wrote about the article in my April newsletter, which you can find here. :D

Carrie Butler said...

Now THAT is dedication. ;)

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Fairview! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Elizabeth! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thanks, Ilima! :) The funny thing is, I tried to get my local newspaper to do something on NA a month ago, and they wouldn't give me the time of day...

Carrie Butler said...

Hah! You might be waiting a long time, Mark, but I appreciate the sentiment. ;) Thank you!

*Grins* But it was fun, right?

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you so much, Lee! :)

Carrie Butler said...

It's a Google kind of day! :)

Carrie Butler said...

Haha! I wish. ;)

Oh my goodness. That one is crazy. The first time I tried it, I flinched! LOL

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Jamie!! :D

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, M Pax! :) No problem!

Carrie Butler said...

Thank you, Trisha! :D

Carrie Butler said...

They shouldn't have axed Jeeves. Every site needs a Butler!

*Grins*

I use Google and had no idea there were tricks but then again I really have very little knowledge, I just type,hit enter and go. Congrats on your interview,that is always a delight. Lucy from Lucy's Reality

I use Google because it's the one who pops up. I should probably try some of the newer ones just to see.
