SweetSearch helps students find outstanding information, faster. It enables them to determine the most relevant results from a list of credible resources, and makes it much easier for them to find primary sources. We exclude not only obvious spam sites, but also marginal sites that read well, but lack academic or journalistic rigour. As importantly, the very best Web sites that are often buried on other search engines appear on the first page of SweetSearch results."
We suggest you use 3 specific strategies when searching for information on your person:
- Include the operator intitle: before you include your famous person's name. This will return results which will have your famous person's name in the title of the web page. For example intitle:"clem jones" [include the colon before the name and leave no spaces, except between the first and second name].
- Include the exact phrase search operator. Place inverted commas around the exact phrase you want the search engine to find. For example "clem jones" will search for the word clem and jones together.
- Include the keyword, biography because you want information about what they have done and achieved.
