How to Search on Google [Tutorial]

Google is the Internet’s most popular search engine, occupying almost 70% of the total U.S. search market share in 2013. With nearly 12.5 billion searches conducted per month, chances are good you’ve used the tool once or twice before.

It would be nearly impossible to manually browse through content on the Internet to find the exact information you need. That’s where Google comes in! When used properly, it’s a powerful tool with the ability to provide you with the precise information you’re seeking in mere seconds.

Using the search engine is fairly simple, but there are some tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of this handy tool. This episode of our Tech Tutorial Series will demonstrate how to maximize efficiency with your Google searches.

Brooks Doherty, dean of general education at Rasmussen College, will walk you through the process of conducting a Google search. Mastering this skill will allow you to have scores of helpful information at your fingertips.
