If you are like me, you initially set out to look up something specific on the internet. Thirty minutes later, you realize that you have wandered down half a dozen rabbit trails, and you still haven’t completed your original search.

To help keep yourself focused, I suggest using targeted searches. To do this, you must first be as descriptive as you can. This will make the search more targeted to what you are looking for. Second, search for exact phrases. To do this, you need to add quotation marks around searches containing multiple words. This tells the search engine that you only want web pages with the exact phrase you are searching for. Third, search by price range when you are looking to purchase a product.  If I’m searching for a set of headphones priced between $100 and $200, I should type in the words “headphone$100 . . . $200”.  Now my search will only show headphones priced between $100 and $200.

The ability to search on the internet is a wonderful tool, but if you don’t manage its use, it can start managing you.

You have a choice, and the choice is yours.
