Just Google It

1 Comment


I am constantly amazed at the scope of the internet.  We sometimes take it for granted, however, it is vast, and we want to be able to use it effectively.  To be able to do that,  you have to be familiar with search engines. The search engine of choice nowadays is Google.com  for millions of internet users.  There are others, and if the past is any guide, there will be a “better than Google” search engine on the horizon. But for now Google seems to be the best.  Part of the reason they are the best is that they keep developing new ways of looking at the internet.  Below are a couple of additional features that Google offers that you might want to check out


news.google.com  Need a current event?  Forget about the newspaper, use the internet like teenagers do to find stories that are only minutes old.

images.google.com/  Arguably the best image search engine in the world.  Try finding a picture of something today.

google.com/shopping  Looking to make a purchase. Shop and compare prices online first using Google Shopping.

google.com/finance  What to check the stock market, try this website for a quick overview.

maps.google.com   Looking for an up to date map or satellite photo, check out these amazingly easy to manipulate maps and photos.

video.google.com  Google has their own video search engine.  Find an educational video on the internet that you can play for your class

youtube.com Several years ago Google bought Youtube which has become the premier video sharing website on the internet.

scholar.google.com  Another project that Google is working on is to create a more efficient way to search scholarly papers.

books.google.com  This is a great way to jump into some literature.  Check out a book online, read some passages and find out where you can buy a copy.
