Searching the Internet - 6

Let's see if we can help Google find what we are looking for by being more specific.

Type this phrase into the search engine bar, with quotes around it:

"Spring is sprung"

These are the first few words of our poem.  By using quotations, we are telling Google we don't want to see webpages that contain spring and sprung somewhere on the page.  We want to see the exact phrase, "spring is sprung," just as we typed it.

Click the Search button.

Much better! Google is telling us there are still over 26,000 results.  However, the second result is the poem we are looking for.

If you want to find a certain phrase, sentence, or words that appear beside each other, use quotation marks "like this".

Search Rule #2- Use Quotation Marks
