Yes, it’s that simple. Of course, that’s like telling someone to learn to ride a bike and “ta-da!” you’re a bicycle racer. You are, but you won’t likely win any bike races without learning some racing skills. There is a bit of skill involved to being a good Googler.
Let’s say you’re looking for a place that does central vacuum repair near
You could Google “central vacuum” but that will give you 22,800,000 results! It would take you a while to go through those to find what you’re really looking for.
So, let’s narrow it down. Let’s Google “central vacuum repair”.
Hmmm, 4,140,000 results. Better, but that’s still a lot of listings.
We can narrow it more. Google “central vacuum repair newmarket ontario”.

But let’s go one further. My central vacuum is a Beam.
Google “beam central vacuum repair newmarket ontario”.
Ba-Bam!! I have what I was looking for.
What I’m trying to show you is that the more specific you can be about what you’re looking for, the better the search results will be.
Note that Google doesn’t care about punctuation, spelling or capital letters versus lower case letters. Your searches don’t even have to be complete sentences, they can just be concept words.
Recently, I was looking for prices of homes in Florida (a girl can dream, can’t she!) so I googled: homes florida disneyworld
You can google a question: how to fix a broken zipper
My son even used google to help him with his math all through high school
Another cool thing about Google is that there is an option to search images and videos.
I’ve used the image search a lot for decorating ideas. Google “small kids bedrooms” or “clock walls”. Often, if you click on an image you like, it will tell you or take you to where to purchase it.
I googled “how many websites are there in the world” and the answer was 180 million active websites. That is a LOT of information about a LOT of stuff. So when I tell you that you can “Google” anything, I really mean just about anything!
I would like to insert a WARNING here. Just because you CAN Google anything, it doesn’t mean you SHOULD Google anything. There is no real regulating on the world wide web and you may be quite shocked at what some people in this world will share behind the veil of anonymity. Legal AND illegal.
