    Explanation
    A web page's address is commonly referred to as its URL, which stands for Uniform Resource Locator. It is the unique address that identifies the location of a specific web page on the internet.

Unlike the other options, a search engine is not a computer motor or a thing in a car.

    What search term would be the most specific as far as finding information on George Washington?

    • A.

      “George Washington”

    • B.

      George –Washington

    • C.

      George Washington

    Correct Answer
    A. “George Washington”
    Explanation
    The search term "George Washington" would be the most specific as it includes the exact name of the person being searched for. The other options either separate the first and last name or only include one of the names, which could potentially yield less accurate or relevant results.

    Rate this question:

    What results will searching for George Washington (no quotes) return?

    • A.

      Websites that contain both the words George and Washington somewhere

    • B.

      Only websites where George Washington appears exactly as you have typed it

    • C.

      Websites that contain either the word George or Washington

    Correct Answer
    A. Websites that contain both the words George and Washington somewhere
    Explanation
    Searching for "George Washington" (no quotes) will return websites that contain both the words "George" and "Washington" somewhere on the page. This means that the search results will include websites that mention both the words individually, but not necessarily together as the phrase "George Washington".

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    For sites about the U.S. capital, why is it better to search Washington, D.C. than just Washington?

    • A.

      Because searching Washington will return many sites that aren’t about Washington, D.C.

    • B.

      Because there are more letters in Washington, D.C. than in Washington

    • C.

      Because it is good to have a comma in your search

    Correct Answer
    A. Because searching Washington will return many sites that aren’t about Washington, D.C.
    Explanation
    Searching Washington will return many sites that aren't about Washington, D.C. This is because there are other places and entities named Washington, such as Washington state or Washington University. Including "D.C." in the search helps to specify that the search is specifically for information related to the U.S. capital, avoiding irrelevant results.

  • 8. 

    Why is it a good idea to try more than one search engine when you’re researching?

    • A.

      Because some search engines are just no good

    • B.

      Because different engines may collect and rank their sites differently

    • C.

      Because you might misspell the term you’re searching.

    Correct Answer
    B. Because different engines may collect and rank their sites differently
    Explanation
    It is a good idea to try more than one search engine when researching because different search engines may collect and rank their sites differently. Each search engine has its own algorithms and criteria for determining the relevance and ranking of websites. By using multiple search engines, you can get a broader range of results and potentially find information that may not be easily accessible through a single search engine. Additionally, different search engines may have different databases and indexes, so trying multiple engines increases the chances of finding comprehensive and diverse information.

    • C.

      Add more relevant words to your search

    Correct Answer
    C. Add more relevant words to your search
    Explanation
    To be more specific with your search, you should add more relevant words to your search. This helps narrow down the search results and retrieve more accurate and specific information related to your query. By including additional keywords that are directly related to your topic, you can filter out irrelevant results and find the information you are looking for more efficiently.

It indexes billions of web pages and provides relevant search results based on user queries. Google's search engine algorithm analyzes keywords, relevance, and other factors to deliver the most accurate and useful results to users. Additionally, Google offers various search features like image search, news search, and maps, making it a comprehensive search engine.
