Question: What are your favorite sites or techniques for Internet research?  -- Anonymous


Comments

Google and HotBot are two of the best Internet research sites I've found.

I think the most popular site for research is Google. I like Ask Jeeves, too.

I'm currently working on my MBA - so I do a considerable amount of work on the Internet.

Sometimes I like going directly to a company's website. Many times a company provides a wide variety of links providing a detailed look inside their organization. For instance, I was interested in finding out about what philanthropic causes Microsoft donates to. I went directly to their site, and within a few clicks of my mouse, I found the information I needed - all the way down to a local office I could contact directly.

I do a lot of research on the Internet as well. Google, Dogpile are some of the ones I use. But my newest one that I like is Metasearch (it searches several engines at once).

Favorite websites - refdesk.com, adminprof.com, word.mvps.org/index.hmtl (Microsoft Word MVPs), and the latest timeanddate.com (great for finding future date deadlines).

I use my Favorites quite a bit and have a few different folders such as Career, Human Resources, Reference, Procurement, and Government.

I would recommend Google. I have had the best luck with them to date.

I find refdesk the most helpful. It has links to answer or research almost any possible question or problem. It is one amazing site.
