Improving Your Googling

To avoid searching through endless unreliable websites, improve your google searches from the start.

Use these as part of your search:

  • (to search only U.S. universities), e.g. "teenage pregnancy" statistics
  • (to search only UK Universities), e.g childhood poverty statistics
  • (to search the US gov website.)
  • (to search the Canadian gov website.)
  • (to search organizations)

    Also include words like disseration, thesis, or pdf to bring up more reliable documents. One final point, if you are searching a phrase, use quotation marks e.g., "social policy" "partner abuse"

    Try "social policy" pdf
