Does any one have any clues or tricks for internet searches? In a library they have the dewey decimal system. On the internet I think they have the Huey, Louie and Dewey decibel system. It only works if you yell at it. It is not a mickey mouse system, but it sure is related to Donald Duck. ::)

I learned a long time ago how to do an author, title or subject search in the library and I was able to find a dozen books within 10 minutes. On the internet, I do a search and get sextillion responses, of which some may or may not be of any use. Do you have a link to a site that simplifies internet search stategies? Thanx

Following is a link to a web site that lists many of the web search engines, directories, reference, data bases, etc. http://www.virtualsalt.com/search.htm I use google first, yahoo second, and dogpile third. MSN search is about a waste of time. I have used the article search listed in the link and it works fairly good. This site suggests in a previous page that you set aside an hour to conduct a search. I have had people tell me they could find anything in 10 minutes. I never asked them how they could do that. Maybe some members have some quick and dirty tricks they use to conduct a search. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I normally find what I am looking for around 10 min. They was I search for something is through yahoo and google. Normally use keywords that is matching what I am looking for. Like polaris ranger forum, polaris rzr forum. Somethings that you look for might not have many pages or a good description so it makes it harder. What normally takes you so long to search for?

Pdf documents are real hard to search, most of the time words on drawings will not come up on a search, although words in the narrative will. For example, fuel line did not come up in a search but fuel tank and carburetor will, and they will show the labeled fuel line. I am sure there is a dictionary on the internet, but to check spelling, I just type the word in a new E-mail message, If it is spelled wrong it will have a red line under it. that doesn't help with my typing though. Other than spell & typing check, I don"t have too many tricks. Another example is I typed "polaris rzr front rack" in a google search and did not find any thing useful. 2005DMAX from this site had an answer for that search.
