It seems that many people do not know how to use Google effectively. So, if you're interested, here are some tips which I use with my students:

I hope this helps. I know a lot of us out there are internet whizzes but a lot of us aren't, and I know it's hard sometimes to get the info you need. Google is really easy, and is often the fastest way to go.

Ever hear of getting some moola effortlessly? Well you can, and I'm here to tell you how to do that. Bing rewards! Once you join, you automatically earn 1 point for every time you use your search engine. For example, say you get about 475 Bing rewards. You will get a 5 dollar gift card of your choice for free! So go on with your bad self, and light up that search engine.

Since Hubby retired, I have joined a website called www.MyPoints.com and downloaded their search engine. The more your search with it, the more points are earned. They email you bargains and surveys daily, as well. I sometimes buy things through the website, and do all the surveys. Also if you click on their other emails, you earn 5 points that way.

When the points have accrued enough, you can get a gift card sent to you. We use those either as gifts to others or we splurge and eat out with them. We discovered that a Pizza Hut gift card for $25 will pretty much get us dinner there 2 times. Free! It takes just a little time daily, and in a couple months, we have the card coming to us. It is a really easy way to earn extra cash online.

Did you know that you can give money to your favorite charity just by performing a search on the Internet? Go to www.goodsearch.com and enter in your favorite charity in the "Who Do You GoodSearch For?" box, then use GoodSearch just like you would any other search engine.

Every time you execute a search, GoodSearch donates a penny to the charity that you designated. This is a great way to make a difference by doing something you do everyday, and a frugal way to support the causes you care about.

Have you ever gone to a website that didn't have a search function available? When this happens, be sure to try Google's handy site search feature.

If you use quotation marks on either side of your request, you will get more specific answers. Instead of writing knit baby sweaters, you should write "knit baby sweaters" to narrow the hits returned to you.
