Or, decease what was it like for me to be an SEO intern in GigaVoice
How to search Google smarter?
I clearly remember the days and nights I? have spent in front of the computer, reading things that I would eventually find out to be irrelevant, finding so much ?garbage? instead of what I?m looking for.
People who don?t know how to search Google properly will understand my point of view. And for the ?know it alls?, try to remember how it was before you knew how to optimize your search.
Are you searching correctly?
During my internship in GigaVoice I learned many things. Amongst the numerous lessons, I? would have to highlight the SEO education, since it was the absolute eye-opener for me. I recall lesson number one: ?If you need more than 5 minutes to find what you?re looking for on the internet, you?re doing it wrong?.
The structured and elaborative presentations gave me all the needed tools to start with. I was guided into the importance of keywords and keyword combinations in order to improve the search results. In no time I was finding piles of relevant publications and data with every single search.
A brief list of the SEO tricks I learned:
- ? being specific and trying out variations of keywords is bliss
- ? finding academic results for a subject is just a click away
- ? finding good templates is easy and you don?t have to create anything from scratch
- ? how to find relevant definitions
- ? if you need statistics in a certain time range, there is a trick to do so
- ? there is a trick for finding pages similar to an example page
- ? you should use upper cases to enforce exact matches
I find information…fast!
Now, I?m not just a lost person on the internet. I can search for the exact info I need and find it fast. There is a difference between good and bad information, I can see it. I don?t just take for granted what is served, there is a way to search and find credible sources. Now, I select the information from the clutter on the internet. The web became easy and accessible.
At the end I would like to indicate that I can? not even say I?m glad I? have ?spent? time on this internship in GigaVoice, because I invested it! And GigaVoice invested in me! And look what can happen to a linguistics graduate with just a little motivation and effort. Would not you go for it too?
