  • The weakness is that some links give irrelevant information. With my findings itself, there are only few link that are suitable for my research and finding the key point may take time some time to find.
  • Then i follow by the advance searchCapture
  • In the print screen above,The strength of the (Advanced Search) helps us to narrow the result we want by changing the region of the search and refine my search. It means that the search could custom to our own findings.Capture

  • Google manage to formulate all my key word
  • The results were better. the search results given to me were relevant. Advanced search feature had helped me to scope in my search and safe time in the detailing.

    However, not all advanced search engine helped me effectively. When i went to search disadvantages of data analytic. This is the results i got were irrelevant.

  • After few search and conclusion.
  • I have decided to use Google as my search browser as it gave more information that we need and it is more effective especially when using the google advance.
  • Google have it advantage feature as it give clearer details and is uncluttered. With the advanced search from Google, we can research on findings more accurately and spec
  • the disadvantage is that i need to be careful key in the correct words in order to yield result as it can give a wrong result and google advance tend to be confuse and  inconvenience posing for users.

overall usage of the search feature, i conclude that. The efficiency of advanced search feature helped us to save time during search as compared to the normal Google search. The filtering are all in one interface and it save us time, google allowed us to filter for an effective search. It is highly recommended for uses to try it out if they do not get what they want in the normal search Google. i manage to find what i need and the result is much relevant.

 

  • Search Engine – other search Engine/ Web (Duckduckgo)
  • (Using ONE search feature of the Database, describe the strength & weakness of
  • this feature. Support with Print Screens & explanation)Capture
  • In the print screen above,The strength of duckduckgo Web is very accurate with our findings. But there is not enough information or links to read. The results show maximum of 18 or less results. No Advanced search.It indicated the region as it from Singapore findingCapture
  •   It state that duckduckgo wont collect or share personal information, which at time good for search and keep the privacy within the user.
    Conclusion
  • (Is Google or duckduckgo web better in searching for resources for your research topic. Explain why.)
  • I have decided to use Google as my search browser as it gave more information that we need and it is more effective than using other web search as research topic. Although Duckduckgo provide more details and at certain usefulness.
  • Google have it advantage as it give clearer details and is uncluttered. duckduckgo Web gave 18 result while Google only give 1,600,000 result, hence the Google gave 500,000 times more result than duckduckgo Web but it will gave more irrelevant result that what we wanted. With the advanced search from Google, we can research on findings more accurately and specific.

 

So overall, google do have it special feature and will be useful at the long run.
