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:
.gov = US government websites
.org = non-profit agency
.edu = educational institution
.com, .net, and .biz= commercial websites
.stateinitials.us = state website or school district (.ma.us)
.uk = United Kingdom site
.au = Australian site,
