Google is the most popular search engine on the Internet, commanding about two-thirds of the internet search market (O'Leary). On average, 3.5 billion Google searches are conducted every day to answer people's informational, navigational, product, and service queries ("Google Search Statistics").

Google can provide a starting point when searching for websites, government reports, images, videos, maps, and more.

This guide provides tips and tricks for searching the Internet effectively by using Google and finding scholarly literature with Google Scholar.
