The most current tips on effectively researching online while saving time, money, and energy

An essential guide for anyone who conducts research on the internet—including librarians, teachers, students, business professionals, and writers—this fully revised handbook details what users must know to take full advantage of internet search tools and resources. From the latest online tools to the new and enhanced services offered by standbys Google and Yahoo!, the major search engines and their myriad of possibilities are thoroughly discussed. This revamped edition also features chapters on popular social networking sites such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn as well as a collection of up-to-date screenshots for visual reference. For those with little to moderate searching experience, friendly, easy-to-follow guidelines to the world of Web research are provided, while experienced searchers will discover new perspectives on content and techniques. A link to the “Extreme Searcher’s Web Page”—featuring additional resources, updates, and news—is also included.


"Even though the book is intended for a 'serious searcher,' the nontechnical language is promising for naive users . . . if you are looking to improve your search results by better understanding web search engines, this is the book for you." —Library Review “We review many new publications, good and not so good, but we know straight away that if it’s a Ran Hock title then it’s going to be great. Buying this book has to be the quickest way you can access year’s of hard-won Web searching experience. Invaluable.” —FreePint "Ran Hock has done it again!" —Chris Sherman,, and coauthor, The Invisible Web
