Given the amount of information available on the web, doing research online can be a daunting task. To better narrow your search, maybe you need to reframe the question you're asking or perhaps there are tools and filters you don't know about that can help focus your search.

If you want advice on how to be a better searcher, join us for the first Google page hangout this Thursday at 10:30am PT. Our topic will be "Putting the search in research," and the discussion will be led by our own search education evangelist +Dan Russell. Dan is an "anthropologist of search" and manages a blog called SearchReSearch (goo.gl/e2rH3) where he studies and offers observations on the way people use search to do research.

Get a taste of what we'll discuss during the hangout this Thursday by watching the video below, which features Dan and Search engineering VP Udi Manber going through some of the golden rules of how to effectively conduct research using Google search.

Got questions for Dan on Thursday? Share your questions in advance by leaving a comment on this post.

Gosh, all the Google + hangouts by Google are when I'm in school. I guess I will have to catch up on Youtube.
 
Will this hangout be recorded +Google ? May sound dramatic but getting good search results can mean the difference between life & death when researching medical treatments... especially when dealing with rare diseases.
 
The web and Google really made it possible to find everything within few clicks of a button.
 
That`s a great topic to follow and learn from! :D Thanks for the the share +Google
 
Anyone got questions?
 
Hello +Kelly Fee It`s great to have you in my circles! :D I was wondering if these tools -previously mentioned in the post isn`t the same as the boolean search?!
 
There are so many more tools than just boolean search. :-)
 
Thanks +Kelly Fee ... that gets me even more interested! Ì`ll watch this video as soon as I have a chance... :D
 
that's annoying, it's just the subject I was hoping to see some day. i'll be at the university at that time. hope this will be recorded and on youtube afterwards.
 
What's with all the Apple stuff at Google? Thought their motto used to be "Don't be evil" You would think they would be anti Apple. Apple is probably one of the most evil (US) companies around today.
 
What about Micro$oft ? Corrupting, being a dick, and ripping off is more evil than solely ripping off. Sure, they could use Linux or some BSD UNIX instead, since they host on Linux.
 
I have nothing against high prices, I am a believer in suply and demand, it's the stealing, misinformation, and human rights violations I have a problem with. (Google it)
 
You would think he would use a Chromebook.
