Or that simply by choosing the correct keyword, you could improve your search results exponentially? If you're like most people, you probably know you could be searching more effectively; this volume actually shows you how! After providing a thorough grounding in search basics-keyword usage, wildcards, and more-author Diane Poremsky moves on to the biggies, Goggle and Yahoo, showing you how to make the most out of their differing approaches.
