TechBookReport on 'Effective Internet Search'
TBR writes "For the vast majority of users web searching is a pretty hit and miss affair. Hit Google, type in a word or phrase and then go for one of the first pages that's listed. If this were not so people wouldn't get so wound up about their Google ranking and the world of SEO would be a lot smaller than it is. It doesn't have to be this way, of course. Using a search engine effectively can yield better (more relevant, higher quality) results in a shorter space of time. There are a number of books and web sites that can help the reader become more effective, including Google Hacks and Web Search Garage, both reviewed on TechBookReport. Effective Internet Search is very much in the same vein as the latter titles."
