1..Click OK. Steps:
1.Begin your search with a Web search engine, such as AltaVista or Google. Enter keywords and phrases related to the subject matter you're interested in, and click Search.
2.In the results list, click on a site’s name to go to it. Even if the site doesn’t have great information, check to see if it has links to other sites that might be more useful. Use the Back button on your browser to return to the original results list.
3.If the first list had too many or too few results, tinker with your keywords to produce more focused search results. (See the Related How "How to Conduct an Advanced Internet Search.")
4.Go to some of the many online encyclopedias for information about your subject (see Related Sites). From the encyclopedia’s search page, enter keywords and phrases related to your subject.
5.Go to sites that specialize in Internet research, such as the Argus Clearinghouse (see Related Sites). These sites offer links to research materials, and will sometimes do your research for you.
6.Look for online library catalogs. Some provide online access to the full text of certain articles and books.
7.Check out Internet newsgroups on your subject. You can even post a request for information to the group. (See Related Hows for more on newsgroups.)
8.Visit chat rooms that are related to your subject matter.
Use multiple search engines to get a variety of search results.
Consider the source of information: university Web sites and government sources tend to be
more reliable than individuals’ personal Web sites.
Warnings: Use caution when gathering information from the Internet. Is the information coming from a trustworthy source? Is a corporation sponsoring the information? (See Related Hows for more on being a Web skeptic.) Steps:
1.Check the URL (Web address) to be sure it was entered correctly. One letter or digit out of place will get you an error message. If you see an error, correct it and push the Enter key (Return key on the Mac).
2.Try moving backwards along the path of the URL. For example, if the URL you entered was http://www.something.com/songs/blues/bbking.html and you get a 404 message, place your cursor in the address box and backspace to remove bbking.html. Your URL should now read http://www.something.com/songs/blues/. Press Enter again. If you are able to access a site this time, look around to see if there is a link to BB King. If necessary, continue backwards until you reach http://www.something.com.
3.Try changing the extension of the last file. In the example given above, change bbking.html to bbking.htm. Or if the last file ended in .htm, change it to html and hit Enter.
4.Wait for a few hours or a few days and try again. Sometimes Internet traffic or other technical problems may make a site temporarily unavailable.
5.If your 404 message includes an invitation to report the missing site to a Webmaster, reporting the error might lead to being provided with the correct URL.
Tips: When you try to access an URL that has previously resulted in an error message, try refreshing your browser. The old error message site could be stored in your cache, and you will need to refresh it before you can view the updated page.
