Ok, I'm making a website, and on my one section I'm making a section about Google.

I'm trying to assemble a list of "types of searches" you can perform on google:

Here is what I've come up with so far:

Simple Searches
-Finding help with an object
-Finding a person's address/phone number
-Reverse look-up of a phone number
-How to find the manual for an object
-How to find drivers for any computer component
-How to find answerws to specific questions
-How to find a software you want to download
-How to find specific news articles
-How to find pictures of someone famous (with SafeSearch ON)
-How to find help with assemlbing an object
-How to find an object
-How to find more information about an object
-How to find a local place to shop
-How to find a local movie theater


Complex Searches
-Finding the title of a song (knowing only a few lines of the lyrics)
-Finding the name of a movie (knowing some key details from the movie)

Don't overlook Google image search and Google Scholar.
Object---don't you mean subject?
Google Maps?
Google News?
Google Groups?
Search for universities?

Good idea, almost for got about that too. But I think I want to cover the "basic" web search and then later move on.

Basic is nice, but to fully utilise all that Google has to offer, and to generate better searches that will yield the most complete results in a realtively fast time, it is useful to have more sophisticed tools at hand. At some point in time, users will want to at least know about and understand the use of these, or be cheated of their benefits.

John
