Finding the information you need on the Web can sometimes be frustrating. Make it easier on yourself with these search tips from Macworld senior contributor Joe Kissell.

  • Take advantage of advanced search. In Google, after you’ve typed in a basic search term, click the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the results page and add more information to narrow your search.
  • Use different search engines. You have multiple search engines at your disposal, so use them! Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask.com and DuckDuckGo all prioritize pages differently.
  • Consider a metasearch. If you’re constantly doing research online and utilizing search engines, you might like DevonAgent Pro. It’s a site that will query many search engines simultaneously to find the overlap in search results and summarize by concept for you.
