Discussion on: The Art of Googling

I'm seriously considering teaching this stuff to my scout group (I'm a scout leader). Sure, we teach them how to knot properly or how to cook on a fire, but they just can't google, even though that's such an important skill in today's world (My little brother once asked me something, I didn't know the answer so I told him "Google it" and he just typed his question into the searchbar!)

Soo yeah, anyways, thanks a lot, especially for the "intext:" and "site:" tip, that's actually super helpful.

As for the asterisk one, I just always delete any custom names and it works fine.

Yes do it! I think this is not just meant for only technical folks. Everyone needs to know how to use google.
