[[#is]]
!!!Google is ...
When you search Google there's a widely held misconception that you are searching the web. In fact you're actually  searching
Google's ''index'' of the web. Google operates by constantly trawling the web (think of spiders) for information and adding it to its stockpile of potentially useful sites.


[[#search]]
!!!Searching
This is a much easier process than database searching, because you don't have to use phrase searchng
, connectors or truncation. Google automatically truncates words, and searches for all the search terms in any order.
With a few basic search commands you can use Google in
a variety of ways. Read more about this in Google's  [[http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=134479&topic=1221265|Basic Search Help]] and  [[http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=136861&topic=1221265|More Search Help ]] pages.

[=There's a widely held misconception that Google searches the internet to find sites for your search. In fact
Google searches its index of the internet. By constantly trawling the internet, Google is able to add potentially useful sites to its stockpile, and ensures that it has the latest version of each site.=]

, because you don't need to bother about phrase searching, connectors or  truncation. Google  searches for all the search terms in any order, and automatically truncates words. With a few basic search commands you can use Google in a variety of ways.=]

Changed lines 20-36 from:
Google ranks the [=results=] by:
--> a) number of [=links=] to that page and
--> b) number of time the [=search term=]/s are used

So generally speaking the most useful [
=results=] will be on the first few pages. Use the menu on the left to filter  results to a particular category - books, videos, blogs etc., and there are more categories under the More link at the bottom of that menu.

[[#did]]
!!!Did you know ...
You can confine your search to specific types of domain - educational (.edu / .ac), governmental (.gov /
.govt) or even commercial (.com / .co)?  This is a really good tip for research. You can type in your search as shown here and specify the type of site, using the command '''site:'''. This can go either before or after your keywords. Note that there is no space after the colon and the [=domain name=]: &nbsp;  '''intellectual property site:govt.nz'''

This searches scholarly material rather than [=web sites=].  For more information about this database see the  [=wiki's =] %newwin%[[Google Scholar]] page.

[=Frequently,
the main set of results is preceded by one or more advertisements, easily distinguished by the coloured background  as you can see in this image.=]

[=Google's main criteria for results are the number of links to a page and the number of times the search term/s are present in a site.  Often the most useful results will be on the first page, and possibly on the second.  It's often useful to use the Search Tools option at the top of the results page to sort results
. Click on Search Tools, and then choose from the options by country, time period, type of site, and location, as you can see in this image. You can also filter results by using the options for Images, Maps, Blogs, etc. =]

'''[=Cache=]'''
*For some [=results=], Google includes a 'cached' link beside the web address, which goes to the [=web site=] as it was when first indexed by  Google.

*If you need to search foreign language [=websites=], there is a Translate link. This allows you to (crudely) translate from many languages into English. 
*Make sure you identify what language it is that you are translating FROM, or it won't work.

'''Definitions'''
*You can get a basic idea
of the meaning of a word (or short phrase) via Google by using '''define:''' [include the colon] before the term. Websites containing a definition of the term will be in [=results=].
