The rules of thumb....
Use Canadian search engines for canada (.ca) for best results
ie: msn.ca, yahoo.ca, google.ca, lycos.ca...
Who ~ What ~ Where
search who & where
or what and where
or what who & where
and search a phrase or part phrase when possible in quotes "ABC".
Upper case or lower case doesn't matter in most search engines
eg: Finding a glass shop in Provost.
Your search term to type in would be;
or glass shops provost
or glass repairs provost
or window repairs provost
or replacement windows
or replacement glass
or "windows provost alberta"
Try it as a phrase ( "in Quotes" ) if the website has the words listed together
etc etc etc. (but no underline) :>)
Keep it simple and think of the way you look things up in the yellow pages.
Sometimes you might be looking for a title of a movie or book
Type in the full name of the title in Quotations as follows
(What) "The Call Of The Wild" (Quotes are used to find a specific Phrase or Title)
Want to find it in Alberta?
Then No quotes
The Call Of The Wild alberta
or "The call of the wild" + alberta
It's actually quite straight forward once you get the hang of it.
