It is a standard convention among computer scientists to distinguish text input into a computer terminal (or, as in this case, a Web page) from surrounding text by printing it in Courier font (since putting it in inverted commas might cause confusion over whether the quote marks were part of the input). I’ve adopted that convention here. 1: It’s important to remember that Google has a limit of ten search terms— anything beyond that limit will be ignored in the search. 2: If you enter two or more search terms, Google’s default behaviour is to assume that you actually want to search for all of them.
Google’s ‘stop list’ includes: a, about, are, at, by, from, I, in, of, how, that, the, this, to, will, who, what, where, when. You can force Google to search for stop words by enclosing them in quotation marks, or by putting plus signs in front of them. If you happened to be taking time off from researching your essay by looking for information about the pop band The Smiths, you would access fewer irrelevant sites by entering the search term “the smiths” or +the smiths than you would if you simply entered the smiths.
Remember, too, when revising for exams, that reading your notes on someone else’s book on Paradise Lost or The Prelude will leave you at two removes from the text. It is no substitute for rereading the poem itself, or at least some carefully chosen sections of it. Some people find it helpful to make notes in the margins of books. This is all right provided the books belong to you. There is a special circle in hell reserved for people who write in library books. You may also want to make notes of another kind, outlining the subject matter of your essay before you write it.
