How to Search from Google For Your Academic Research?


In this time, the most popular search engine is Google. It's tough to find people who don't know about it.  By searching for just one or two words, the vast data repository that catches us may not initially be an option for data collection. But we sometimes have to speed up to find the information we need from there. It's harder to find the desired information, especially in academic research. But all of our catch-up information may be available on Google. If we take care of some steps while searching on this engine, we can easily find our information.

A Wesleyan University study says only 25 percent of students can find the information they need from it. If we follow some technic, it will help as a lot. Let's know about it.


Using Too many keywords

We usually use one or a few words while searching. Google uses each of these words as an index to match the words from other sites. The site where the maximum number of matches is available, it presents it to us. So, when using the maximum number of keywords in search, it can make our preferred site top. The more keywords you use, the better the search results appear. Suppose you want to express something to your friend. It may not be apparent to him in a word or two, but in many words, your friend's perception of the matter may be clear. The biggest search engine is just like your friend. Please give it a more youthful sound. You see, the results are in front of you.


Don't use a stop word

Google automatically filters out some of the most frequently used words, and they do not affect search. Some of the words are 'and', 'the', WH words ('where', 'how', 'what'), 'or' and so on. It also filters out a letter, For example: 'a/an'. Suppose you wrote in the search bar, 'how a transmission works', now Google will first make the stop word (how, a) shorten your search and make 'transmission works'. Then the real quest will start. So it is probably taking longer to use the new stop word, there is no search. So as much as you can, try not to use a stop word.


But if adding a stop word is essential, you need to convince Google that you want it to search with that word. It would be best if you used the '+' operator. Adding a '+' operator before a word is a stop word, but the giant engine will search with that word.

For example, to add the word 'how' to the search, type '+ how'. It should be noted that there is no space after the '+' operator.

Using of operator

The use of operators in the Google search helps us to obtain specific information. These operators can be a powerful tool for finding information, academic research or search engine optimization. Take a look at the search operators.

o "(Quote) - Search for a word or phrase by enclosing it in quotation marks. For example, "IQSA News".

o 'OR' or '|' (OR) - Google usually uses the AND operator between two words. That is, if you search by typing two words, it will display only those sites that contain the two words. If the two words are searched for one or the other, use the OR operator. In this case, you must use uppercase letters or it will take it as a stop word.

o          () (Parenthesis) - A search command can be grouped using parenthesis or parenthesis.

o '–'(Minus) to exclude a word from the search using the minus operator. In that case, Google will exclude sites that contain those words.

o '+' (plus) operator needs to use for searching with stop word.

o          in - This operator is used to make single changes. For example; 250 km in miles. Also, the general calculation can be done in its address bar.

o          intitle- the operator will search only for the title or title of the page. For example; intitle: "tesla vs Edison".

o          inurl - This operator is used to search the site's URL or address. Eg: Donald trump inurl: 2010.

o          intext - This operator is used to search only text or body parts of the site.

o          The filetype operator is essential and quite useful. As the name implies, this operator is used to find files of a particular format. Ex: Diary of a wimpy kid filetype: pdf.

o          link: This operator is used to search a specific site through this search engine.

The most important thing for academic research is a google search. General Google search is not suitable for academic research. Therefore, Google Scholar makes it very easy for academic research, projects or sites to mention. Research papers that have the opportunity to be read free can be found in Google Scholar.
