DoctorLaptop’s Tops #54 – Effective Searching

Naythan DrLaptop logo 1 small

Your PC is a library and teacher. It can provide learning and research resources for almost anything, usually for free if you look hard enough. The trick is making effective searches.

Learn which search terms, called keywords, work effectively for your purposes (suggestions below) and which sites in the search results are reliable or

best avoided.

You can find pics and videos of anything, or famous documents with zoom-able viewing, or reference texts, or live webcams of  millions of locations.

Simply enter any short phrase into the Search Box on your chosen Search Engine’s webpage

(Google/Bing/Yahoo/Startpage/etc) and hit Enter.

A list of websites will be

returned that contain the term searched for. You can then browse them and open by clicking on them. Be specific for more targeted results (ex. guitar lessons vs. free video guitar lessons).

While Google is the most popular Search Engine it is often not the most

effective, it heavily filters search results to favor its advertising

clients. The same for Bing and Yahoo. Get familiar with these other Search

Engine sites to access results hidden by the big 3.
https://www.unbubble.eu/  (English language Euro-based Green Energy

www.dogpile.com  (No Adverts!)

Try entering these terms into your selected search engine or the YouTube

search box. You will find articles, tutorial videos and 3D virtual tours of

almost any topic or subject.
-“How to cook/fix/grow/install/upgrade (anything)”.
-“Virtual tour of (location)”.
-“Free (anything) lessons”.
-“Live webcam of (location)”.
And try these search engines for specific items or tasks:

Recommendation- Opinion

I wonder if I may make a suggestion.

Could people who recommend a co. or person and say the price is great, not expensive or whatever, tell us how much they actually paid because one persons good might not be someone else’s and the person being recommended shouldn’t object.

It would be up to us then to contact that person if the price is right.

Only a suggestion.

TC-ME smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
