Thanks for reading and commenting, Laura!
love the infographic, i especially liked the bit about not using wiki for your school projects resource. my son who is only in 5th had used wiki for his recent science project and i was just explaining to him to follow the links at the bottom for the real sources. better to start them early ;-)
thanks for the info AP

thx for reading, jeepndave!
This was both interesting and helpful. I think that this will make my google searches far more efficient and in my job that is a plus. I particularly like the convertor feature. Keep up the great work!
Google can be our friend at work. :) thx for reading, Eric!
Very informative. True i don’t use Google much but I was amazed at some of the shortcuts. I guess i’ve been doing thing the hard way!! Great article!
