Being able to find general information online is a good skill to have. However, it can take some practice sifting through search engine results until you are able to identify what is really useful or accurate general information and what is not. It is helpful to start by choosing your search engine key words carefully so that your results produce the information you want. If you are looking for general information like the location or phone number of a business, you simply have to type the name or type of business and your location. If you are looking for general information about a topic that you have to research for work or school, remember that you cannot believe everything you read on the Internet. It is always a good idea to check several credible sources to make sure that the information between them corresponds.
