Finally! A Search Engine That Screams

Okay, maybe I'm impatient. On second thought. No, I'm like you are. I'm a busy professional who needs results now.

I've finally found the ultimate search engine. It's Google.com. This search engine is fast. How fast? Well, it will tell you exactly how many seconds it took to compile your search. Sounds pretty good, eh?

A tip to keep in mind when using any search engine is to use quotation marks if you are looking for an exact phrase. Otherwise, for example, if you are looking for accounting firms you will get everything with "accounting" and "firms" in the metatags (the little things hidden on the web pages that talk to the search engines) unless you put the whole phrase in quotation marks.

If you are ultra busy and don't have time to use a speed demon like Google, check out a "Cyber Librarian." These trained researchers will conduct your search for you for a fee. For more information, visit Scherer Cybrarian Services.
