Lib Loop: Quotation marks key to successful internet searches

Internet searches. We’ve all been doing them for what may seem like forever, and most of us consider ourselves pretty adept.

So here is a trick that may just make your internet searches even better. Use quotation marks around a phrase. “Lake Tahoe” will force the search engine to find those words in that exact order.

No longer will completely non-relevant results about the Chevy Tahoe stop you from finding what you seek. Improve the accuracy of your search power with quotation marks.
