Effective Searching

Web search engines are useful in finding Government reports, resources from industry, and professional organisations. But check out the domain to understand the purpose of the site. A .com site is commercial and is designed to sell a product and/or company, or is providing a space for anyone to publish (e.g. a blog) without editing or reference to research.

Use the Advanced Search options in Google to:

  • Search by file type - i.e. PDF (documents without intro web page content)
  • Search by domain - i.e. (useful for locating government reports)
  • Search by date

To see many other ways of refining your search in Google, view the short video below.
