While Google search has become quite intelligent, however there are times we don’t find answers on what we were looking for. It could be because of the simple search query that fails to retrieve relevant results. One easy way is to improve your query and what could be a better way to learn search skills from Google itself.

Google has been offering free power searching courses for quite a few years now and their next batch will be commencing this year from February 8th.
