Internet search tips

Search engines are databases. Many parse web sites, acquiring key words and phrases relating to their content. Many web sites are very large and front vast databases of their own, which the search engines cannot parse. It therefore makes sense to think of using Internet search engines to find likely sources of the information you seek, rather than the information itself. Such informative sites usually have their own built-in search facility, which can be very simple, or complex and intuitive.

 

Boolean logic is a form of intuition: searching the Internet for books, for example, will show hundreds of thousands of results - sites that contain the word books. Many Internet and site search engines permit the use of Boolean logic in searches, allowing for refining the search for books to include and exclude certain factors or criteria. Searching for books NOT fiction will exclude the word fiction from the results.

 

"Inverted commas" are a simple yet effective means of searching more accurately. Without the inverted commas, most engines will search for all web sites containing the words inverted AND/OR commas. Using the inverted commas around the phrase in a search will show results only for that phrase. For example, search for your own postal or zip code without the commas, then search by placing the code within inverted commas and compare the results. You might also try searching for a telephone number and variants thereof by excluding the first four digits. You might be surprised at how much information about individuals and companies becomes available.

 

Some web sites equipped with their own search facilities might also use Boolean operators such as + and - operators, where (+) means AND, and (-) means NOT, whilst others offer graphical drop-down options to include or exclude certain search terms.

Stock Watchers

Trading in stocks and shares is a gamble. You gather information and make a decision to gamble, based on your own interpretation of it. It's called due diligence.

Securities and Exchange Commission (US)

The primary mission of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is to protect investors and maintain the integrity of the securities markets. As more and more first-time investors turn to the markets to help secure their futures, pay for homes, and send children to college, these goals are more compelling than ever.
The world of investing is fascinating, complex, and can be very fruitful. But unlike the banking world, where deposits are guaranteed by the federal government, stocks, bonds and other securities can lose value. There are no guarantees. That's why investing should not be a spectator sport; indeed, the principal way for investors to protect the money they put into the securities markets is to do research and ask questions.
