Module 2 Discussion: Search Results

Use two different search engines to conduct the same search. Pick one of the following phrases to search. Use quotation marks on the words to narrow your search:

  • “big-box store”
  • “largest supermarket chain”
  • “brick and mortar store”
  • “computers in business”

Search for your chosen phrase using Google. Next, use the same phrase to search on Microsoft Bing. Once you’ve run the same search on the two different engines, compare the results.

Ask yourself these questions for discussion:

  • Which search engine provided the most relevant results?
  • How could you narrow your search further using a search engine?

Share your opinions below and respond to two of your classmates’ thoughts.
