SearchDay Reader Tips 2

Searcher Tips

When you find an article on the Net that you consider good, you can also use search engines to locate its author and professional affiliation. It is often possible to track down an office phone number. When you do, then CALL and TALK. I've learned over the years that university professors are among the most under-appreciated people in the known universe. A few politely phrased questions by phone will often elicit the most amazing and helpful references -- some of them on the Net and some not. Perhaps the most important question of all is "what are some of the pertinent questions in this field?"

Every paper or database you locate on the Internet has people behind it -- people who know more than they've published in places the search engines find. If you need an in-depth understanding, then talk to authors and archive administrators. The worst they can do is say "no", and a lot of them will say "yes" emphatically.

We all mark favorites; many of us lose track of why we chose them -- because we forget we can CHANGE THEIR NAME before we indicate where in the favorite box they should go.

And even then, we lose sight of them because we tend to forget where we put them. We can aggravate things by putting copies in all our folders, or we can put them on our desktops as well! Make a series of FOLDERS (right click on your desktop to create; rightclick on FOLDER to rename) named the way we want them; in FAVORITES, right click on the name and select SEND TO. My version of IE says it'll make a shortcut on my desktop -- which it does -- and which I can then grab and move to the file folder of my choice.

I do have a LINK (bottom of my screen) that includes a shortcut to -- my DESKTOP. No matter how many IE windows I've got, I can go like a bunny, one click, to check out my FAVORITE folders.

Webmaster Tip

Framed sites once were considered the bane of search engine existence. Now, more and more engines are reading frames. But there is an easy tip that can significantly help your positioning and further catalogue your site.
A very common mistake is not using the "no frames" section of the index page. The code will often look like this:

<br /> Your Browser Does Not Support Frames<br />

The only text a search engine will read on your index page is: "Your Browser Does Not Support Frames". Quite likely, this sentence has little to do with you and your site. Fixing this is very simple. Simply take the body text and links of your main frame and insert it between the tags. So the code might read something like this:</p> <p><noframes> <br /> <body><br /> <p>Welcome to our most wonderful site of widgets.
