Making Google work for you

Whether you are an expert or just use it when you need to answer a question, Google is where many go to find answers. Are you using it to the best of your advantage? NewsFirst can help you get the most out of your search engine.

Imagine you are writing a letter to your mom. Find the key works in that letter, and then use those.

Check out all that Google has to offer. Need a recipe for meatloaf but don't want to use meat? Use the side tool bar to help you find recipes alternative recipes. You can search for your flight, look up movie times in your area, or you can translate a reading.

If you are just cruising the internet, you can check out Google gives a different question a day. You can ask a friend, look it up, or google your way to the answer. It's all up to you.
