Narrowing Down Google Results

Once you run a Google search, you have several options to narrow your search results.

One way is searching Google using its general search box and then limiting the search results to News, Images, Videos or other common material formats. You can then further refine your search by format:

  • Type your search terms in the Google search box
  • Once you get the search results, click on the format icon of your choice (e.g. News, Images, Videos) located under the Google search box
  • Click on Tools (also located under the Google search box) to see drop down menus with options that allow refining your chosen format search

These options are sensitive to each format. For example, you can refine your Images search by Size, Color, Usage Rights, etc., while your Videos search can be refined by Duration, Source, etc.
